Thanks Ben, that saves me digging.

Stan - it's a bit gubbed, so will replace it.

I knew that when I bought it, but for £51 inc postage I can't complain, especially as I've got a spare set of springs from when I bought a new push pad for the black wheel in Ted

Looks promising from the youtube reviews in last few weeks. Going on the Passat first, then maybe the Leaf, by then the wax will be worn off the turbo, so will get the same treatment if it looks good on the other two.

Got both the Passat and the turbo done between showers today. The Ceramic Hybrid Wax was super easy to use. Recommend that your paint is already super slick. Recommend a power washer. Recommend you have a few drying microfibre towels to wipe the product in the paint and then buff off. Did a prep coat and then a reapplication. Results are pretty impressive. How durable only time will tell. But looks really slick well polished. The beauty of the product is it can be used every few weeks/months to keep it topped up. Whilst the ‘how to’ videos on YouTube show only use on paint, I covered the whole car, everything. Even spritzed the engine bays with it. It was all gone after two cars due to the two coats and doing paint, glass wheels and engine bays. Will be more economical on top up coats.
