If you are not overly fussy it might be fine, but i don't believe it can do paintwork any good long term to spray on a chemcal and rub the grit over it .If it were the panacea for all ills then surely it would be more popular.I would like to see the paintwork of a car close up that had been only cleaned with this stuff for a year or two to be convinced.

Clay bar your car (Meguirs Kwik detailer + clay for example to remove the contamination on the paint). and then use Collinite 476. It is expensive but you use very little .It is alsohard to apply but will give you a nice deep shine which will make theflakes in the paint 'pop' int the sunlight andbead waterfor months. It is used on boats so is pretty durable against wintery salty roads.

I normally wash my cars with snowfoam and I dry them first with a leafblower and then one of Elite's own yellow microfibre towels

Like the idea of drying with leafblower,but mine`s rather large & too heavy to lift.
