I had the opposite experience with Iron Detox from a performance point of view (I think it's awesome), however I did have issues with the triggers 3/10 didn't work. I politely emailed Car Chem and they sent me new triggers next day delivery FOC which impressed me.

Point of note the Car Cosmetics triggers you've gotta squeeze em hard and fast to get them to prime when they do work!

Yep I bought 5L of it for £12 when it was on some deal banged it in a fence sprayer and lathered the car in it. Might as well have just sprayed car with the hose. No reaction whatsoever!

Magifoam looks cool on Instagram though! Lather was first shampoo I bought other than Turtle Wax/Carplan back in 2012 and I thought it was bobber too! Dragons Breath I thought was good but I don't buy it anymore.

It foams up great,but as for cleaning its not great

Dragons breath was just to thick for me

Yeah DB was difficult to spray, so much so I ended up diluting DB with another thinner fallout remover, effective but difficult to work with hence why I don't buy it anymore.

I had a bag of Mercedes branded stuff that came with my dad's E-Class. Lots of stuff in a lovely case. All of it was crap.

Kept the MB branded detailing bag though!

That surprises me as I've had very good results from it. Admittedly from an old bottle of it so maybe they've changed the formula?
