Will report on durability.
If the weather is a bit rubbish, give them a quick wipe over with a microfibre after about 5 minutes so that the excess doesn't run and turn into 'sling' on your car :)

Just to make sure, I did check your website first but couldn't see it so bought off TeaBay. I didn't miss it did I? I'll always check your site first when I need new stuff!
You didn't miss it - Gtechniq wanted me to purchase a horrific ammount of stock up front, so its not one of my suppliers....one for the future though :)

Just looking through your website Blackroc, looking good! I'm going to put a small order in tomorow and am looking at getting maybe some CarChem Revolt for the deep cleaning of my wheels every couple of months and then some Angelwax Bilberry for the basic wash every couple of weeks. Would these both be ok for my standard M135i alloys? Is the Angelwax Bilberry safe enough to use on the standard painted surface as i dont want the alloys to dull or discolour? Or would i be better off with other products?

Thanks in advance, Richard

Hi Richard - thanks for the comments regarding the site, it's still a bit work in progress, with a few tweeks here and there going on!

Your plan for deep cleaning with Revolt, and the maintaining with the Bilberry is perfectly fine, it's designed to be used on all wheel types (except stainless steel) so won't cause any issues :-)

Would you say Autobrite Purple Rain is safe to use on the stock M140i alloys? My using it wouldn't de-colour them?
