    Just looking in the classified and I am tempted by the Dimond Bright but once you have used it can you then use Zymol (the body polish Halfords sell not the top end stuff) on top when you wash the car in the future????

    No need to use polish/wax ever again after treating with Diamondbrite. Or at least thats what they say! In fact I think a polish/wax will remove some of the Diamondbrite but not sure about that.

    I have not washed my car for about 4 weeks since treating the paint with Diamondbrite, I have done about 1200 miles and it didnt really need a wash but I simply gave it a hose off and the dirt fell off, a quick chamois and it looks like it has just come out of the showroom.

    Now, I think it is brilliant but I dont know if it will last as long as they claim. 6 years? is what they say but I dont know if it will. A word of warning, you will have to use the Jewelultra shampoo and conserver, any other wash & wax will probably help to remove the treatment.

    there seems to be loads of diamondbrite kits on ebay at the moment for £20 (buy it now) Im well impressed with the finish, rained all last night but after 2 mins driving thismorning car was bone dry, water just flies off it.

    How can you tell the difference between genuine diamondbrite and normal polish?

    What colour is the genuine stuff, any noticable smell off the genuine product?

    I have just gone out and bought a new bottle of Zymol when I bought the car so I will use that and then look to the DB.
