Hi lewis I cant speak for the quality of these MF's but I am using something around 300-400 gsm at the moment which works great, I do gave a couple extra plush buffing towels around 600-800 gsm i think and they are not as good IMO I find them awkward to keep a hold of and keep in the double fold "position" I guess you could call it. This is what I use to buff off my bilt hamber double speed wax which I also highly rate. I am however fairly new to detailing. Only been detailing my car for a year or so.

I should add that the MF I remove the wax residue with came with he wax which I got off amazon. But from what I can tell its the same gsm as my AD towels.

Here's a thread where some members have bought MF cloths from AliExpress:
http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...orfibre&page=4
Might be worth asking those members in the thread about the quality of the AE cloths.
Korean MF cloths are rumoured to be the best but interestingly I have a Chemical Guys MF cloth that is good quality that is made in China and I've had it for a few years.

I was tempted to buy some AE cloths but I have enough!

The quality does look good though:

The Edgeless Thick and Gold Cobra cloths that I mentioned in that thread are both good value and good quality.

MF cloths off aliexpress

I got some of the black edge less from Ali express. Whilst not the thickest as they are single sided and like a short pile. Still lovely and soft though. They are perfect for the initial removal of wax. No pull on any fibres like I sometimes got from some of the plusher types of cloth. I then swop to another super plush cloth to buff and finish.
