    Then I’d use Pledge, without a doubt, especially on the body plastics. It does what it says on the tin, nothing more, nothing less. Just apply it exactly as it says on the very basic instructions.

    Dealerships use it to keep their awesomes shining and on public display. They know it works and they know it is cheap in Tesco.

    Pledge, nothing beats it apart from a quality spit and polish.

    Cod's eyes. Silicon spray is the enemy of the vehicle refinisher. After years with fighting the effects of it, either airborne or applied directly, I never use the stuff.
    Any spelling mistakes, punctuation errors or missuse of capitals are intentional and are designed to wind up the doughnuts amongst us.

    i also use the Muc Off silicone spray ,spray on wipe surplus off,does a great job and bike looks superb. The Muc of dirt remover/cleaner i won't use. I think this is quite strong in chemicals. I use to use that, but diluted it down 3 to 1 till it ran out.

    A cheaper alternative to Muc off Silicone is The GT85. halfords stocked it had the cheapest price a couple of months back

    Don't forget that silicon will destroy a lambda sensor.

    If you look in your BMW manual it states if you use Silicone Spray your warranty is null and void
