I had mine treated with GTechniq C5 from new and use GTechniq fallout remover/wheel cleaner when I wash the car. I've got Bilberry wheel cleaner but don't find it that great.
My calipers are black though so not as difficult to keep clean.
One thing I would say having lovingly cleaned mine yesterday, is that I'm now seeing lots of very small stone chips on the wheels. I even have a couple on the calipers. I think Macca mentioned this a couple of months ago and I suspect the teledials may be susceptible to this.
There are PH neutral cleaners about, this is what I use after having bad experiences years ago with acid cleaners. Good wheel cleaners that I use are Angelwax Bilberry (buy the big bottle and dilute to the strength you need), Auto Finesse Imperial and for the not very dirty at all very soft approach Auto Finesse Wheel Soap Revolution. I also periodically use a Iron Remover to remove bad brake dust (again, there are good less abrasive ones out there) and Tar remover for black tar spots every so often. Do this and all you'll have to worry about is the stone chips.
Hiya, just cleaned off a load of bird crap of the most sinister kind. It was welded to the bodywork and gave me all the trouble I needed when clean8ng it off. Even after that there is still flat spots on the paint where the most stubborn bits were. Any ideas on what I can do to restore the...

As per other thread just washed the car for first* time in over 6 months...
i use a karcher pressure washer to wet it, then snow foam thickly with autoglym polar blast, leave for 20 mins today, rinse with washer, then use a small fat boa with the detailers touch up shampoo, then rinse again...
I like the look of the Autoglym polar blast system, but is it any good?? and could i use a normal polish as well, say every three months or is it good enough on its own???
Any feedback would be appreciated, ta bob
My new Giulia has diamond cut alloys
I have searched for tests on alloy wheel sealers and brushes and almost every test has different results, so can i grab some pointers as to a good sealer and brush???
Ideally easy to apply, read that AG is not recommended for diamond cut alloys...
