The standard 18" xcellence wheels I find are a nightmare to clean - anyone else find the same?
A nightmare.

On the other hand, the 18” bi-colour machined alloys are the easiest to clean wheels I have ever had. Just a wipe with a wet cloth is all they need. Sadly, in the UK, they ar not an option on the Xcellence.

I have failed to find Dreft in the local Tesco's, Sainsburys or Wilkinson's so far. There's an Asda, Morrisons and a Lidl near me so I'll keep looking.

Everyone seems to stock Woolite though, and I've heard that name mentioned before. I'll have to try that if Dreft isn't available in Wales...

Value for money you can't beat Soft 99 products fron Nippon Shine, I use fusso to protect the body work ( painted bits ). But going for bulux fron car pro on all exterior plastics. I just need some decent weather to do a full decontamination was, clay bar and single stage machine polish.

Fully agree with the above
Soft99 Fusso on the paintwork ( Topped with a coat of soft99 Water Block if you want crazy water behavior ) with excellent gloss levels,

As for the Carpro Dlux, it is an awesome product, designed for alloys and plastics. I used this on a previous car with fantastic results. I will be using it on my Ateca FR that will be with me August 12th, ( all going well )

Oh dear, please don’t use it anymore unless you wanna ruin your paint. Fairy makes the paint look dull.
There are special and more effective products available.

I suggest to take some time and read www.detailingworld.co.uk. Loads of useful information available

It was a tongue in cheek comment I'm afraid. I used to spend a fair bit of time and effort cleaning and polishing/waxing cars only for them to be filthy 2 days later so a quick rinse off every now and then will do for me....using some autoglym once or twice a year.

I understand why some people spend hours 'detailing' their car ..... I just want to use something that gets the car clean with a wash every couple of weeks and perhaps a quick polish every 6 months.
I'm certainly not going to spend more than 30 mins washing a car!
Any suggestions?
