    I bought some AG Magma recently, has been sat in the garage so thought I’d give it a whirl today.
    The car has sat on the drive since lockdown began, instead of the usual 400-700 miles per week it has done 200 in 8 weeks... Still managed to build up a horrible layer of dust and tree debris.

    Rinsed off, washed with AG Conditioner, rinsed off, semi dry down then sprayed with the AG Magma. Left for 5 mins as suggested, quite a bit of contamination on versions parts of the body:

    Not too bad on the wheels:

    Rinsed off and then used the last of my AG Aqua Wax, dried and final buff.
    Megs tyre dressing and a quick vacuum.

    I’m really pleased how an 8 year old car with 82K on the clock looks.

    Lots of contamination there, good to get rid of it, must depend on where you live and the type of roads you travel on, I brought some bilt hamber korrosol and when I used it on my E60 nothing not a hint of contamination, to be honest was a bit disappointed ended up using the korrosol as wheel cleaner.

    I’ve read about the likes of Fallout (Poorboys?) and wondered what it would do on the E92. The AG treatment is still holding out reasonably well I feel, re-application of AG Aqua Wax tops it up nicely.

    Tried the Magma on the wife’s Audi, more showed up but in different areas, not so much on the wheels.

    Magma's great stuff! Really makes claying afterwards easier :cool: I always add it to my detailing routine.
    I bought a bulk 5l bottle for about £40 or so online to last me a fair while. Then my brother bought me a litre of Troll's Breath!

    Any fallout remover is a must if you’re polishing and protecting a car. Especially so if it’s a light colour.

    I started using IronX, then AF Iron Out and now use Sterling‘s Bleeding Wheels IronX which is much cheaper but the same thing.

    I use it over the entire bodywork of the car prior to claying & polishing but with particular focus on the wheels on a more regular basis.

    it is good to see a product that it is doing its job and the thioglycolic acid in fallout remover certainly lets you see the product is working for you

    l use bilt hamber korrosol for the paint work and bilt hamber auto wheel for the alloy wheels it works well and is good value for money when compared to some other products

    After spending some time on Sunday cleaning the car, I’ve now had the joy of watching the dust settle all over it for the past 48 hours. As the car goes nowhere due to WFH, it doesn’t even benefit from a good blowing away of the cobwebs, so to speak.

    It’s bonkers eh? I washed mine last week a it’s has one run out and rest of the time it’s been sat in the garage, but there’s so much dust in the atmosphere that it’s covered!
