Hi everyone,
Hope your well ... I've had my Adam just over 2 months now ... and I washed it for the first time yesterday ... however I noticed after cleaning all the mud off ... that some marks weren't coming off ...
I think it might be oil ... it's the part of the car where the door meets at the bottom ... it looks like i've splashed water onto the bottom of the door when it's been open and there are holes there with grease in and this has caused the oily, greasy water to run down the white part of the car under the door when its closed and it won't come off ...
Has anyone got any ideas how to get it off?

I know you can get grease, petrol, oil removers but I know that is normally for the road when you've spilled it and I didn't want to ruin the surface of the car.
Thanks

Try an alloy wheel cleaner, it removes break dust as well. spray on and wipe off with microfiber cloth.

autoglym wheel clean is good. sometimes break dust can spray onto bodywork and stick like solid lumps. don't leave spray on paintwork too long, butautoglym wheel clean is suitable for all surfaces. good luck.

Hi guys... please don't use alloy wheel cleaner on your car.... its really acidic and causes damage to wheels, never mind paintwork....

To take marks off the paint, use tar and glue remover followed by a bit of love with a quality wax

For wheels, (and im not taking the p%*s)..... hp brown sauce...use it like a polish...

I was shown this by a detailer who worked for a dealer who does aston, Ferrari , lambo, Porsche etc so he knows what he is doing.... it does work well

He also uses peanut oil on black plastics and mouldings.....

When he does a car you wouldn't know whether to eat it or drive it

using waterless cleaners is great and quick. but using it with a cloth that turns into sandpaper on the paintwork and your end up with swirls and scratches on your paintwork as your not washing away dirt.autoglym wheel cleaner has no acid, but personal choice.

I use showroom shine it's brilliant stuff. I get the marks your on about. Spray the showroom shine on and leave for 2seconds and the marks are gone. It's a waterless cleaner. Plus it protects your paintwork against things like tar when they resurface the roads. I highly recommend it I'm on my 3rd bottle and have used it on every car I've owned.

Hi I had this and believe this is the delivery wax to protect the car from damage when they are shipped then jet washed off before being sold at the dealership, I did manage to get it off but it take a lot of scrubbing with soapy water but eventually it came off, failing that you could approach the dealership, hope this helps.
