Bumper Buffers

You know the stuff in cans that brings your dull bumpers to life and can also transform your miserable plastic interior? That stuff. Well, I decided to tackle the dirty back bumper on Free Car Mag’s ancient BMW 7 Series that we call Shed 7. So this was a very tough test.

Incredibly this was the cheapest, however Black Pack delivered the most effective bumper shine. After it was sprayed on and buffed up, it instantly gave a lovely shine. Perfect.

£4.99 FROM WILKINSONS

By far the most expensive I tested, but it ranked in the middle of the two others when it came to performance. This spray produced a disappointingly low shine when buffed up.

This product was a tad confusing to use. It stated on the tin that for the very best results, just spray it on. What they missed was stage two, which is, buff it! After I did that it was better.

Livy’s Verdict: The least expensive Black Pack bumper shine was the best out of the three, achieving an amazing shine. I mean, if all you are going to do is buff up your bumpers which will get dirty again in no time, then use the cheapest. You know it makes sense.
