Treat headlamp lenses instead of costly replacements
The anti-glare headlight lenses have to withstand a lot: climatic influences, UV radiation, acid rain, de-icing salt and road dirt, with time they will ensure that the plastic is matt and yellowed. This has a negative effect on the appearance – and on the safety too, when the headlamps suffer from „fatigue“. A costly replacement can often be avoided, however.
Our expert tip fpr this: For this purpose the SONAX Headlight restoration set was developed, it is specially adapted for the materials of modern vehicles and is simple to apply. The set contains four small pieces of abrasive paper, a special polish and a sealant – everything needed for the application.
The product freshens up yellowed and matt surfaces, smoothens out fine scratches and seals the surface of the sensitive protective coating.
The „before and after effect“ utterly convinces, with a difference like day and night: Due to the restored headlights the driver’s vision is perceptibly improved and he can be seen better as well. A major gain in road safety and a visible contribution towards value retention. The set is sufficient for about four applications.
The new SONAX Headlight restoration set provides improved luminous efficiency and durable protection against renewed bleaching out for plastic headlight lenses.
Again and again we read that polishing with carnauba wax works real car care miracles. That’s why Christian D. wants to know: Is it true that perfect paintwork care can be achieved with pure carnauba wax.
You probably know the problem: The front windscreen is actually new, but already scratched. This is especially disturbing against oncoming light. Potential causes could be a dirty windscreen or wiper blades, but it could also be the trusty old ice scraper.
Many car owners want to preserve the paintwork after a thorough polish, and rightly so. A lot has changed in this field – in fact, the future of car care has already begun.
The vexatious summer topic of insects will probably never cease: Insect dirt looks nasty and it damages the car’s paintwork. The organic “paint devourers” can induce serious damage, particularly when exposed to solar radiation. And the longer it sticks to the paintwork, the deeper the residues eat into the paintwork surface.
A high performance winter windscreen cleaner guarantees clear vision in seconds. That is good for safer driving, but it also has a positive effect on cost calculation.
Olaf G from Essen asks: Nowadays, car windscreen cleaners are not only offered as concentrates, but also as ready to use mixtures. What would you recommend“?
Although the dirt is not as noticeable on dark lacquered rims, nevertheless they ought to be regularly cleaned, just like the rims in classic design, before those beautiful wheels are attacked by aggressive dirt contamination.
When you have a winter windscreen cleaner in the tank and a windscreen de-icer ready to hand, then you actually have the winter under control. Almost: For we continually receive queries asking how to prevent the doors from freezing shut.
When it’s time to change over to summer tyres, you should take the opportunity to thoroughly clean off the winter dirt contamination and to care for the tyres and wheels. Be sure to use an acid free wheel cleaner.
