I feel that you could benefit from adding in a decontamination step (maybe on alternate washes) with an iron fallout product (just prior to using this contact wash).
Perhaps do a deep clean and decontamination (fallout remover and clay) of the car when you get it, then polish and then sealant/wax/ceramic or graphine coating. There are a lot of good channels on YouTube such as forensic detailing to get some good information.
Yes, don't do a prewash (the snow foam won't work so good), and finish with wax.
If I do prewash, snow foam, this, then a basic polish - am I missing anything obviously off from this? Just talking about a regular monthly wash rather than a deep clean.

Use Autoglym Magma, Best for iron particles stuck on wheels! About £9 from halfords. I used it on a set of 20+ year old wheels and they look nearly brand new (highfive)
Using the link it says £8.02, Prime, for me https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07N6S8J45?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
how do you find that, ive used autosmart products and they are a little harsh, well they are if the wind goes that way and you get a throat full. my wheels are protected but i do have quite alot of brake dust
That I would pay good money for.
Possibly, but more likely to be iron fallout from brake pads. Look at Bilt Hamber Auto Wheel Cleaner. It’s very effective and gets awards for good reason.

I recently (21 days ago) had my Renault Clio 4 MOT tested by Formula 1. Normally they wizz through but as the area manager was in with regional manager they went through it with fine tooth comb. Was the very first time I've ever seen a tester wash the windscreen to look for chips and damage. Even checked the filler cap. Now I was very happy that A, it passed with 2 advisories and B, they were thorough with it. Ppl forget it's not just their own safety but other road users too. IMO there are far too many people who just want a years ticket and that's it. Wake up people. They will tell you if there is work that need attention but that doesn't mean you have to get them to do it. Take it to another garage and ask for them to assess and give you their opinion. I've done it all motoring life. Yes some places like halfrauds among others will try and pull your pants down and not lube up before delivering you the shocking figures they want but they are not all like it. My 1 piece of advice is take it to the same garage and build a good rapport with them. They will in turn show you respect and not pull your pants down.
Yes the mots there for a reason and by sounds of it you take good care of your car so nothing to be worried about
It looks like £5 of the full MOT price of £54.85 looking at the deal,so confusing...
I take good care of my car and have high qualifications in HGV or LGV (which ever) mechanics. I took my car for an air con refresh but when I arrived they told me they had no air con gas. I then had to rebook but mentioned I was booked in for a MOT elsewhere and would have to work around that. As a "gesture of good will" for wasting my time etc.. they carried out a MOT on my car at the same time as the aircon for an additional £20. I was watching closely and the tester went over and beyond to try and find a fault to recoup their money.
I went not long ago and had a really good experience. More for people who actually take good care of their car and are unlikely to need big repairs.
OK, thanks. I don't really need one as I have a few decent ones in reserve from the US but you know what it's like. Try something else just to see (and be amazed or disappointed :D ) Voted hot for the price and ease of getting, still pondering.
We was told by Autoglym the worst thing is dont leave in water like you would a normal leather that's what destroys them
Is it the wringing out that destroys them? Would a mangle increase the life do you think?
Great item use these at work but the shelf life is not great . Made by vileda so not really a Autoglym product but is good for couple months if only used on body work not door surrounds....
Great product, marred by short life. They start shedding after a while.
Needs to stay on the surface for 2 mins before wiping off for it to kill bacteria :)
Tbh even their products aren’t class leading or great value for money in a lot of cases. They’re not terrible things and they meet a basic standard of usability but nothing special to deserve the HM stamp on it.
I have a vast array of both AutoGlym and Meguiars car cleaning stuff, but never seen this before and will not be getting this! IMHO, this is AG just trying to cash in on fear porn bandwagon and they have gone down in my estimation with this.
Heat added as it is half the price it was last year.
Heat added for a branded car interior cleaning spray which I can use with confidence that it won't leave streaks or marks, and at a fairly reasonably price. I can take or leave the 'sanitizer' action. I just want something to help the dust stick to the cloth instead of moving it around to settle somewhere else later.
Didn't know Amazon had these products. I would say for the price delivered, if you are not overly bothered what foam you use and a light user, you can't complain. Says it PH neutral but don't they all. Voted hot because it will have its audience Reviews good and bad, not everything works for everyone, even the mighty BH.
cold works out for 5ltr £18.30 can get a decent branded snow foam for that.
I bought some of these the last time they were on offer with 5l of wash. I wouldn't use them personally as I made 2 5l bottles up and 1 week later the bottles were full of bits, now just imagine your water bottle and all the bits clogging the washers up.
Plenty of other brands on Amazon if there is no Euro Car near you. Might work out cheaper if you have Prime.
