    All I use on mine is this. Usually get it from Halfrauds, put it on cleans the dirt and brings them up.

    Other than that I'm an AutoGlym person. Different people in our club use different things but i know quite a few that use Wonder Wheels and it brings them up really well I feel.

    AutoGlym stuff seems to work well, my car has the Lifeshine from them and the guarantee it comes with sounds a good idea as well which is always good and it came with a big bag of cleaning stuff with it to keep it clean and shiny

    Hints taken. Thankfully (well, sort of !) my alloys are well past looking great (they're literally older than the year 7's, as is the car).

    Far from it, its great at getting the stubbourn gunk off and because it foams it gets into tall the nooks and crannies, use it every now and again on mine and it works great.

    give it a go

    I'll stick to the alloy wheel cleaner as I really don't have £800 per corner for new alloys (yes VW know how to charge for these 18" beasts! - although flebay etc may provide better pricing thats the VW book price as I asked when ordering some bits the other day!)
