    Dash cleaner

    Normally, I would go for the poorboys or chemical guys from CYC, but with the halfords 3fo2r2 I'm tempted by this:

    Would it be suitable for the mk4 dash?

    I've used this before on exterior plastics and rubber. It is good but give a shine to whatever it is applied to so may reflect sun etc off the dash.

    Is that "halfordable". Ie does it cost silly money there?

    Are you meaning for tyres or alloys? I'm after alloy sealant.

    ahh i was on about tyres.

    never used it so cant comment. i used AG EGP on my wheels but it doesnt last long (about a month or so ish). nothing in halfords is durable.

    megs hot rims is good. depends how dirty they are. i very rarely use it maybe 2-3 times a year max. just use normal shampoo most of the time. but having redstuff pads means naff all dust so they stay cleaner for longer.

    I use it on all my interior plastics and rubbers. Gives a slight shine, but looks good. It doesn't look wet or stupidly shiney. Smells great as well.
