    A4 black edition alloy advice needed!

    EVening all,

    Hope someone can help clear this up for me. I'm very cautious with which alloy cleaner I use, as the black edition alloys are not normal, they are Anthracite high gloss turned finish.

    Any advice would be very much welcome about the best alloy cleaner to use.

    Cheers all!

    i am waiting for delivery of my new audi a4 black edition, i am opting for a wheel sealant by Gtechniq called C5, this will protect the wheels from all the contaminants from sticking and just allow them to be washed with your normal soapy water.

    I use bilberry wheel cleaner, awesome stuff and ph neutral. Wonder wheels is, in my opinion, too strong and I wouldn't put it anywhere near my wheels.
    Wheel sealants are good but the don't last forever so you'll still need a decent cleaner to use from time to time. Iron-x is also an excellent product and can also be used on panels to remove contaminants.

    I use Bilberry as well and it's really good at removing stubborn stuff from your wheels. Smells awesome as well!

    wonder wheels is too strong, a decent sealant and wash with shampoo should be all that is needed, if there is stubborn dirt then a bit of ph neutral wheel cleaner, i personally don't like bilbery as this corroded my centre caps on my VXR.

    I'll keep an eye on mine. I tend to dilute to about 5/6 to 1 and haven't had any problems yet.

    I have found that bilberry doesnt do much, and have a gallon of the stuff in the shed collecting spider webs.Now Iron-x on the other hand is the best product ive used.Theres a new one that has a tar remover in it which makes it even better.Trouble is it dont half stink.Great on the body work too, gets rid of a lot of iron contamination.

    Interesting, I love bilberry but then I haven't tried it on really dirty wheels yet.
