I've used Iron Out, Gtechniq W6, Iron X and most recently, BH Korrosol. All have been brilliant. Best so far is the BH because of the vfm and least offensive smell.

I'm definitely going to try Autoglym's Liquid Clay though. It's meant to smell less offensive while still being effective. It's good value in 5l too.

Hi all

Fairly new to the forum and only really just starting to learn about tar/iron removal and claying etc and have a question. (I used this thread as it was one of the most recent regarding iron removal and to save starting a new thread). Ok so:

It seems that the correct process is to - wash the car (incl pre-wash etc etc) then tar removal, then iron removal, then clay. Correct so far? So anyway, I tried Gtechniq W6 today on the wifes car, and indeed a large amount of iron was dissolving, lots of purple to be seen! After letting it dwell for 10 mins I then powerhosed it off. Now indeed the paintwork was better, but still quite a bit of the orangey spots remained. So finally the question: do I go around again with W6 and repeat? Or do I agitate the remainder with a cloth or mitt? Or do I move on to claying to remove the remainder? I have never clayed before and ive read its easy to inflict damage if most of the iron fallout etc is not removed first. Im just after advice on the best and safest methods of this stage really before I try a full decontamination myself for the first time. I plan on using my wifes Golf as my experimenting car before being brave enough to try it on my S3. I have Crystal Serum ceramic coatings on both cars having had them both pro-detailed at new, but I now want to maintain them myself without having to keep going back to the detailers. Thanks in advance everyone.

I prefer BH Korrosol to IronX.

Performs just as well if not better imo.
Smells better (only just thought)

BH Auto-wheels is better IMO as it clings to the paint a touch more then Korrosol more of thicker liquid which is handy on vertical panels
