    Is it me or is that not a lot of money to spend on alloy wheel cleaner. Don't mean to criticize but it just seems a lot.

    buying bulk is allways much cheaper for detailing supples. 5L of APC is about £30 while the same stuff in a 500ml bottle with a spray nozzle is £12, you pay for convinience most of the time. Billbery cleaner is good stuff and comes reccomended by alot of people.

    Oh I know It's good stuff and bulk is cheaper. I don't use a product to clean my wheels just soapy water and elbow grease, maybe that's why it seems a lot??

    Bilbery dilutes up to 1:5 parts water so for general use almost a lifetimes supply.
    Pro Rata the smaller bottles work out at double the cost per litre and you don't dilute.

    We also have 5 vehicles and a few scroungers in the family :D ;)

    Here's the reviews..... http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/valet-pro ... d_499.html

    PS: I haven't told the missus i've just bought £25 of wheel cleaner :)) :-^
