Works much better than Karcher snow foam lance - easy to use and comes with Detailing World recommendation - if your after a snow foam lance can't ask for a better price or performance.

1 to 2 inches of snow foam solution in the bottle - fill up with hot water and away you go :)

Brilliant - pre washes much better than anything from Halfords for less money - even following the saharah sands we had in South East got rid of it and road film without any effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing mattress for mind blowing price, 4 Jan 2014
Having been using a memory foam mattress which was on offer from Pound land (120 for double) it had developed a permanent dip and was far too soft - so having ordered a new bed frame decided to get myself a new mattress - looked around websites and found this one as I didn't want to spend Tempur type money and the 3 zone had won the which best buy award so thought the 7 zone would be even better.

Unexpected Amazon were the cheapest price - ordered and was delivered day earlier than estimate.

Having been unrolled for 2 hours now in a warm house ( on old bed frame - new one awaiting coming into stock) its amazingly comfy - its a firm medium and is amazingly luxurious - you don't sink fully into mattress but sink a bit - which means your not cocooned :)

The zones work well with stiffest restince in the middle of mattress so people won't roll together - and noticeably more support in the middle zone than at top or bottom.

Maybe I got lucky - but no chemical smell or smell of cannabis is mine - haven't even needed to open the window :)

I would thoughly recommend this mattress to anyone who wants a luxurious mattress without spending silly money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant system - highly recommended, 23 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well 24 hours later time to write a review.

Firstly the user interface ( the menu screens which look like the metro interface on Windows 8 ) are a joy to use, easy to navigate with a controller and even easier by speaking. Pretty much you don't need a controller once you've set Kinect 2 up :)

Games install easily - updates are handled automatically, and although only a few apps so far the main ones you will want such as Machisma and YouTube are already there - as well as 4OD ( BBC iPlayer is on its way ).

Looks wise fits in really well next to the home cinema stuff in lounge - understated looks mean its the incredible images on the TV not the funky box or light show that grabs the attention.

Controller battery life using 2 Duracell AA battery's is really good - controller is a pleasure to use - impulse triggers are used really well in Forza and others.

Highly recommended - amazingly pleased with mine :)

The latest adventures of the unfortunate grey seer continue, warning contains clan eshin assassins, old powers and the usual cannibalism. If the rat kin sunk their teeth into you in the Gotrek books then this is a must read.

A very well written series set in the Warhammer universe. Avoids one dimensional characters - while reading this you can empathise with the characters motivations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not essential but can be useful, 9 Jan 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars

This contains an Official nintendo power adaptor and a charging cradle for the Nintendo 3DS XL.

If you have bought a 3DS XL please be aware you will need a charger (unless you are upgrading from an original 3DS or DSi DSi XL), which is available from Amazon on its own for approximately 1/3rd of the cost of this pack.

What you gain with this pack is the charging cradle, a black plastic frame that the included adaptor plugs into. To charge your 3DS XL you simply place it in the cradle and it starts charging - I bought it because I have to plug in the charging cable to my mobile phone and tablet when I'm back from work - simply being able to drop my 3DS XL straight into this saves me a little hassle and time - something that for me is worth the extra price.

The cradle has a cut out so you can keep headphones plugged into your 3DS XL while it is charging, is set at a slight angle and you are able to change games in the 3DS XL all while it is charging, although you wont be able to access the stylus without lifting the unit slightly - which is not a problem.

It dies what it says on the tin - charges without having to plug a wire into your hand held each time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than my 3DS - and that took some doing, 9 Jan 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars

I have had my 3ds for over a year and was very pleased with it, although there were a few areas that I felt could be improved, these included:

The Buttons under the lower screen - the ones on the 3DS didn't feel easy to find and I wasn't always sure that I had pressed it.
When I needed the stylus it was a bit of a search for it at the back behind the screen.
The non-screen parts picked up fingerprints so easily - being a bit of a freak about keeping things shiny always used to keep a cleaning cloth handy.
Battery life concerns meant I always felt the need to bring the charger with me.

Well my white 3DS XL arrived while I was at work and i've just finished doing the system transfer from my 3DS and here are my initial impressions.
If you are also doing a system transfer you will lose the pre-installed game as part of the process - don't panic - the transfer process merges the eShop accounts on the original 3DS and on the new 3DS XL - just goto the eShop once complete and scroll to settings (far left of choices) and choose your downloads - the pre-installed game will be at the top of the list for you to redownload :)

The 3DS XL is a big improvement on a great original. I simply love the white colour - it looks really classy - and dare I say it looks amazaing, and doesn't seem to pick up fingerprints at all, something that happens across all 3DS XL models due to a change in finish, well done Nintendo.
The larger screen size, even in menu's is a revelation, with the 3D effects more noticable :)
The sylus now sits on the right side of the unit, is really easy to find, both due to the change in position from the original 3DS and with the redesign of the stylus itself.
The buttons under the lower creen are now proper individual buttons, the improvement here is immense, each is much easier to identify and you always know you have pressed it - working just like a keyboard button.
I can't comment on the battery life from my experience, but all the online reviews and nintendo scources agree that the larger battery, despite the larger screen sizes, means that the XL lasts longer than the 3DS :)

I am really, really pleased that I made the choice to upgrade, and anyone else who's sitting on the fence weighing up the options, all I can say is you won't be dissapointed if you choose the XL, and if your a newcomer to Nintendos 3D world what are you waiting for. Nintendo have really impressed me with this, and although you it doesn't come with a mains adaptor, everything mentions this, so just remember to purchase one at the same time you buy a 3DS XL :) its certainly not a deal breaker.

4.0 out of 5 stars brilliant Wii U time killer, 11 Dec 2012

Good fun, entertaining for all ages and easy to play without realising how much time has passed. If you like management type games with a sense of humour this is well worth buying.
