Snow Foam Amateur

So I snow foamed my car today for the first time. Used a Nilfisk 145 pressure Auto Finesse Lance Autoglym Polar foam Granted this was my first time, but I was really surprised how quickly I went through the solution. I did 2 whole bottles to coat the car. (100ml foam solution, 500ml water - so 600ml...

Re: The 'Cleaning Your Tiguan' Thread

To the guys with the Nilfisk jet washes. My E145 arrived and it's a total beast. My patio is sparkling clean, but I am very concerned with going anywhere near the car with it. It has some serious power. Have any of you got the 'Auto' nozzle? and if so does this stop the risk of paint damage? https:/...

Re: The 'Cleaning Your Tiguan' Thread

This is what my car looks like by the way. Ceramic coated on Saturday, then this after a trip round the m25 in the rain on the Sunday. The front is immaculate. The back is a mess

The guy used CarbonCollective ceramic. Said I’m not allowed to wash it for 7 days

Re: The 'Cleaning Your Tiguan' Thread

If you guys have a jet wash. Does this not make sense rather than two bucket:?

Re: The 'Cleaning Your Tiguan' Thread

I just bought this one:

Nilfisk E 145 bar Power Washer with 2100W Induction Motor, Blue
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nilfisk-Powerf ... 1640599031

Interestingly, The 2018 model with the patio kit, is £229, but the one without is £263. Bizarre.

Re: The 'Cleaning Your Tiguan' Thread

Excellent help everyone! Slowly getting through all the things I need to buy. Starting with the jet wash. I am more than happy to take the recommendation of getting a Nilfisk. Does anyone have a model number of the one they have? Not sure where I should be pitching in terms of pressure 130? 140? Thi...

Re: The 'Cleaning Your Tiguan' Thread

Awesome! Thanks CNC. If anyone can recommend a jet wash they are happy with, any products, mitts etc, that would really be appreciated. I was about to press the button on this jet wash, but then looked at the Kaerchers, and they are so much more expensive, but is that for a reason? https://www.johnl...

The 'Cleaning Your Tiguan' Thread

Hi all. I thought it might be good to create a thread about car cleaning / washing. Basically I've had an old car for quite some time, and never bothered washing it. Took it through the petrol station car wash maybe once every 2 months if lucky. But many of us have spent a lot of money, and with tha...

Re: Curbed Suzuka Alloy Repair (Any one repaired one)

Will the same guy others have used, Karl not come out to you? I’m south of the river - his catchment area is north london. I’ve got a guy coming on Tuesday to pick up the wheel, and return it on Thursday. He will put the space saver on the car and we’ll avoid driving as much as possible. £120-£140 ...
