It actually works really well. My dad turned me onto it years ago as it was his method when he was a young man in his hot rod days. I stopped using newspaper myself when I began getting lighter colored interiors. You'll find the print does a fine job on the glass, but it also comes off on your hands and will do the same if you accidentally rub it or your dirty hands on any of your leather or other bits on the inside of your ride. Today for me, it's a dedicated window microfiber towel (stiffer nap) that does a great job every time. I keep one in the car for emergency purposes.
If these guys are going to find you things to do whilst you wait for help to arrive, might I suggest a good book?
If the intention is to be able to deal with something minor that is bugging you, whilst waiting for SWMBO, it's probably best not to be waist deep in screws and bits off the car when she comes out of the shop. "Only be a minute, dearest!"
If the intention is to be able to diagnose a failure that has left you stranded at the side of the road, you will be lucky to find a solution that you can diagnose without specialist knowledge.
So the optimal would be a comprehensive collection of fuses, and spare bulbs, and a trivial collection of tools as required to get in and change the bulbs. Much more than that, and I would suspect a phone charger and a good book is the only solution.
My SLK is black, so always looks a bit dusty (not dirty) normally! I would like to buy a polishing machine and the kit and would like advice. Any thoughts on a home/DIY no frills buffing machine - no scratches on the paintwork, it just needs a brighter shine!
