Thanks


I did 2 coats. Apply first coat and then wipe the residue don't buff. Then 30 minutes later I added the second coat, wiping the residue. Just don't let the residue dry.

I use planet polish wheel seal and shine for the wheels and finishkare 1000P high temp wax on the calipers. Used this on my last few cars apart from my A45 AMG which had matte black wheels where I used nanolex matte sealant.

I bought them both to try them out and was happy with the results to keep using them, I tend to only keep cars a year and only do 1 application in that year, but done friends and families cars and they can't believe the difference. You don't need to spend loads to get a good result.

C5 wheels off, then topped with C2 every 4-6 weeks has worked well for both Golf R flow-forged (and powder coast rims), and also VW Up diamond cut/black cast alloys, both from new.

No need for alloy cleaners (Bilberry etc) if one cleans them regularly with shampoo ( I do them every 2 weeks, YMMV). I also use W6 (iron X) every 3-4 months

Re coat with C5 every year.

I find this the best blend of low maintenance and lasting product effect.

I hear good things about Gyeon Rim, but am happy with above.

New car (at dealer) is getting wheels off C5 and then topped with Exo3, so we shall see if that's a real improvement.
