    We've been advised to have our MH treated professionally inside and out to protect the finish on it. What are folks experiences? Is it worth the £600 or so to have it done?

    If it is worth doing, can anyone advise which is the best company to use please?

    Thanks

    good question ! I'm not really too sure !!
    It's been on my car for five years, must say the lustre isn't quite as good as it was (did have a lovely sheen)
    I wash, polish and use ultra deep shine once/twice a year to finish.

    Maybe it's due another Lifeshine treatment :LOL:

    I looked at the Lifeshine website, not much use tbh

    I've got a pack of Lifeshine products which came with my car. I didn't realise they were the same as the products used by the professionals.... are they?

    Yes !
    There is no magic treatment, the valeting guy at the dealership applies it and you pick up the tab !!

    Ten years on with a van or maybe 5 years with a car do you actually get any more when you sell on? Just asking. :cautious:

    For Sale: Can of Snake Oil. Best price secures.

    Seriously though - brother in law had his AMG63 coated in some wonder crap at a cost of £500. Still has to have it washed every week, as for some reason, £500 doesn't buy you an anti road / bird muck shield :roflmto::roflmto:

    Save your money as will look good until your first road trip in bad weather. I have used "Mer" since I was a lad and still the best.
