R3ign - it can apparently last two years - it hasn't been around long enough to say for sure though.

I'm afraid I have to ask you to remove the 'increase your income' link from your sig please. At best it's against the spirit of the forum, and worst it's commercial advertising...

FK1000P

Wonder Wheels should be used as an absolute last resort - if you're using it regularly you will be ruining your wheels. Acidic wheel cleaners are just not necessary unless your talking caked on dirt. Bilberry is non-acidic, and if the wheels are sealed with FK1000P you won't even need that.


I haven't used wonder wheels on this car as I have no need to, I know its only for the really stubborn ground in dirt, usually a scrub with a sponge gets the dirt off. I was just reading about the FK1000p and loads of people are raving about it

No need for an apology - I knew that was the case, which is why I asked you to remove it yourself rather than just doing it myself.

thanks,

going to look for these cleaning products now :)

on a side note (slightly off topic) what do you use for your windscreen ? i.e. to repel rain

I've used rainX but it really does not last that long and I've tried autoglym windscreen polish but leave a greasy residue

I have never bothered with glass sealant - I just keep them clean with Megs concentrate glass cleaner.

Ditto ^

Otherwise you get buildup and windscreens are the hardest things to keep streak free

I clay bar my windscreen every few months, and clean it with AutoGylm Fast Glass inbetween. Never bothered with expensive sealants.

Yeah assuming they have a layer of lacquer on them so they are sealed off.
