Some of there stuff is shop prices when you include VAT, and their drink was dearer than the supermarkets.

But they do do things like cleaning gear and oil in bulk.

You could always just buy a case of the stuff from poundland/world/stretchers etc.

I use: elite car care.com nice web site and easy to deal with but you will pay delivery on orders less than £50.00.

Their Bilberry wheel cleaner is good, and the Snow Foam, Enzyme Cleaner, Glyptone Leather stuff, MF towels etc.

I got a 20ltr bucket with grit-guard which is excellent.
Cars in my care:

2005 Volvo S40 T5 a bit pampered
2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple

ive been and had alook in one of these trade places.

Most of the stuff is what halfords stock etc, the prices are shocking tho between 3and4 quid for top notch stuff
eg. sonax 2.96 its nearly 10quid a throw in the shops :shock:
