For example, today I had the heat turned up slightly between blue and red. When I was warm enough, I turned it off by moving the dial all the way into the blue, then the AC...

    Are color changing wheel cleaners like Iron X safe for GTI wheels & calipers?

    I just learned about iron decontamination sprays after I had my new GTI ceramic coated recently. I bought some Optimum Ferrex to use for a decontamination wash when the time comes. I've always avoided wheel cleaners after having had bad experiences with them years ago. Since then, I've just used...
