Fast Ford - - What's New -

The first thing you no­tice about Im­mac­u­late is just how thick and silky it fells when you ap­ply it to the body­work. That, and the lovely fruity fra­grance. The so­lu­tion foams-up nicely when you ag­i­tate it with a hose, but not so much it’s all bub­bles and no sham­poo. Get a good hand­ful and, when us­ing a suit­able wash mitt, it glides over the pan­els ef­fort­lessly. It feels as if you’re wash­ing over a re­cently waxed sur­face – which, ob­vi­ously we weren’t. Stub­born dirt (and the RS’s famed lit­tle black splat­ters from the ex­haust at the back) do re­quire a lit­tle more el­bow grease but are soon re­moved with a cou­ple of passes. Even the wa­ter sheets-off nicely when rins­ing, re­duc­ing the dry­ing time and like­li­hood of an­noy­ing wa­ter spots too.

It’s sur­pris­ing how far a cou­ple of cap­fuls goes. We still had enough left to wash half a car again, so even a big es­tate car would only want a lit­tle splash. Mean­ing a sin­gle bot­tle will last even the most en­thu­si­as­tic car washer an en­tire sum­mer sea­son, so it’s ac­tu­ally re­ally good value too.

But, I’ve al­ways said I don’t mind pay­ing for a good prod­uct that does a good job. And Im­mac­u­late is cer­tainly that. As a sham­poo it’s never go­ing to be the sex­i­est prod­uct on the mar­ket like colour-chang­ing iron fall­out re­movers, or ul­tra-glossy wa­ter-re­pel­lent wax pastes, but it’s ar­guably even more im­por­tant. It’s a prod­uct you’ll use ev­ery sin­gle time you clean your car.

In sum­mary, Im­mac­u­late feels like a premium prod­uct. It’s nice and smooth to ap­ply, rinses off with ease, and dries to leave a streak­free spot­less fin­ish.

And, at £9.99 for a 500ml bot­tle it’s good value too. Very im­pres­sive, and we can’t wait to try out some more of the Bear Car Care range in the fu­ture.
