That guide will be fine. Polished Bliss are one of the best Detailing companys out there. If I had the money (and lived in Scotland) I'd have them do my car for sure. One of the detailers owns an Impreza WR1 too.

Im using Autoglym engine cleaner on my Bugeye at the moment, using an old tooth brush to ease the dirt/grease off and its coming up a treat, not thats its filthy but I just wanted to give it the once over.
