MARLIN EXi STILL SUPER ‘SEXY’!

Although it’s never really been away, Marlin’s excellent EXi has been enjoying good sales of late and has been re-launched. There’s also a slight change of name from ‘5EXi’ to ‘EXi’.

The Devon-based company, run by Terry Matthews, has been concentrating on their BMW diesel-powered Sportster model in recent months, but have now turned their attention to the EXi, once more.

It’s a car I’ve always enjoyed, indeed, I spent some time with one at the Nordschleife some years ago and had a great time, aside from running out of petrol on one lap, but moving swiftly on.

NO GERRY ANDERSON PUPPET PUNS!

South Korean brands are very popular in the car care scene and you’ll regularly see names like Gyeon, CarPro and Cartect although the market leader in their homeland is Bullsone, closely followed by SteamJet.

Another South Korean range that is now available in the UK, is Fireball, via Ultimate Finish at Brands Hatch in Kent.

I’d heard some great things about their snow foam pre-cleaners and decided to put the Red version through its paces.

It’s not one of the latest on-trend coloured snow foams rather it’s a conventional white suds product. Dilution levels are incredibly frugal at 1:600 and you just add More >
