  • Is it any good? Or am I best of using 2 separate products.

    • I'm not a fan of the iron x snow soap. It stinks, and I've never seen much in the way of a reaction on the paint.
      Personally, I would much rather use seperate products.

        • New newest favourite detailing product........Bosch Brake Pads !!!

          Now stay with me.....The #1 I loathe with cleaning my Abarth is her white wheels. They look adorable for the fleeing moment when clean and they need a lot of time to get clean only for the delusion of cleanliness to disappear within 10kms of city driving. Yes, coatings help, specialist brushes help, specialist cleaners help but only to an extent.

          When treating her to some Brembo goodness last week I took the opportunity to switch over to Bosch Blue brake pads (on the strong suggestion of a friend). Well OMG the dusting is now marginally at best and the cleaning time reduced by half

          For those of you who drive Euro's - these are highly recommended. Not especially easy to find, but not impossible and well worth it. BTW and a decent pad !!! and not too exxy !!!

            If you are referring to brembo pads yes. They are terrible. I don't know how they got away with making such bad pads and putting them into cars with factory brembo calipers.

            Had them in my Evo. Changed them and never looked back.....

            I had them on white aftermarket wheels. Spend an hour getting them perfect. Stand on the brakes twice the black specks have reappeared.

              I hear you brother !!!!

              When upgrading my brakes I put in (larger) Brembo GT discs and 4 pot calipers

              When shopping for pads the HiPo Brembos pads (HP2000) where extremely $$$$ so took up the suggestion of the Bosch. Happy

                My favourite pads have, and always will be bendix. Fantastic stopping, low dust and no squeaks.
                There's a lot of Japanese brands like project mu that produce phenomenonal pads too.
