    I think bigben uses G techniq. Bit expensive for me, I use poorboys wheel sealant over SRP and collli 915. Brake dust just falls of with a normal garden hose

    Cheers guys - I have to admit to avoiding Wonder Wheels, it wrecked the MV2's on a former company car of mine

    With the Bilberry do you just put it in a spray bottle (so could I just use my Autoglym one) and dilute accordingly?

    Have to admit I've never heard of it but then that's no surprise really

    Are there any others before I buy the Bilberry stuff?

    Sham is SRP the Super Resin Polish - I did use the Colli's.

    I've just bought ome Sunflower 1 alloys and want to spruce them up before putting on - the brake dust on the back was a pain to get off with the Autoglym hence the question.

    Trust me on this one mate, I did my research

    I've got ACS type 3's 2 piece splits with a polished lip. I wasn't going to use anything that would damage the finish or stain the aluminium. Bilberry came up all over the net on different forums etc

    For the money its worth it, it does't stain if you leave it on longer unlike other products and you'll probably end up buying another bottle of the stuff when yours runs out, I know I will its amazing stuff

    And yes you can mix it in your AG bottle, my neighbour thinks I clean my wheels with Mr Muscle

    I only use SRP to bring up the shine, then colli for extra gloss and the next day I go for poor boys wheel sealant to lock in the shine. I've got the privellage of having steelies to run the car on in the meantime

    With caked on dust go 50/50 with the bilberry, leave on 5 mins then agitate with a brush and hose (recomends pressure washer but garden hose does perfectly, even a watering can - i've tried)

    I used autosmart smart wheels... with my old wheels, the LM's have the C5 on them so just use the snow foam when doing the car!

    I know I know But SRP and colli can be used on the bodywork as well plus I don't like the feeling of using a "full" bottle and then it finishing when the jobs done

    I'll probably give Gtech a go once this PB is finished, gonna take me a long time though still got nearly a full tub left

    Cheers Sham - that's me sold on the Pillberry, will order a bottle in a bit

    Mr Muscle - now that really has cheered me up

    The C5 stuff looks like it works a treat but a tad expensive for me - cheers folks
