Great for the price

Doesn't work as good as Sonax FE on wheels but I give a couple shots of OPC after BDX turns purple. That combo has done great with everything I have come across.

just as good as any other iron remover

The price point here is pretty good considering a lot of other iron removing products on the market are the same price or more for 16 oz. Works pretty fast, really no complaints with this one.

Good Results
October 19, 2016
Had very good results cleaning the brake dust from my C300. Took a few passes and some elbow grease but, was my first attempt and expect the process will improve over time. It did cut through the caked on brake dust when you let it sit for a while. Overall a very good product, thanks.
  • Cuts dust and dirt by just spraying.
  • Dries fast in warm weather, need to scrub small nooks and cranny's.

Good alternative for IronX
August 29, 2016
Was going to do 3 stars, because it's a "meh" product. Nothing exciting or wonderful. But, gave it 4, because it's a good alternative to IronX. It's less offensive in the smell department, and it's slightly cheaper.

I've only used both IronX and BDX, and they appear to perform about the same. They get the job done.
  • Better value over IronX
  • Stinky product!

Does The Job

I purchased this product to use before I put a coating on my wheels. At first I thought it didn't work. On the first two wheels I used it on, I had no color change at all. Then on the last two wheels the color change became evident in a couple of places. I guess I keep my wheels pretty clean.
Super easy to use and the smell wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Excellent product to make sure you've removed all the contaminants from your wheels.

Always wanterd to see the color change
April 1, 2016
Very impressed with what it does and shows. I'm not sure if it actually cleans better than other high quality wheel cleaners but .... for me and my striving for perfection attitude ... it shows me how good a job I have done. On my show M Roadster I was a bit leery as I saw hardly purple appear and was wondering if the stuff actually works. However then I put it on my daily driver X3 even after washing my wheels it showed me quite a bit of purple thus directing me where to work a little harder. So I consider this both a cleaner and a quality control product. My usuall brushing and wash with car wash and a powere rinse/prewash and then the use of this make sure I get it all off.
  • Works like it says and provides quality control
  • It's not cheap and I would guess that anyone who uses this to completely clean their wheels versus using it as a followup to a preliminary soap and water brushing will only get one or two complete cleaning of of this on a daily driven care with German/dusty pads. Light use vehicles or "cleaner" padded cars will do better.

My favorite color changing wheel cleaner!
January 13, 2016
I recently put BDX up again Griots Heavy Duty Wheel Cleaner and Adams Deep Wheel Cleaner and found that this did the best job as far as clinging to the wheels and breaking down the brake dust.

The consistency of the product is what makes it a winner in my book. Just the right consistency to cling to wheels and spray an even amount to the surface.

Has that similar smell to other color changing wheel cleaners but I'd say its easily the best of the bunch. Not terrible like einszett ColorTec
  • Excellent cleaning ability
  • Perfect consistency to cling to wheels
  • Economical price point
  • None for me!

Works as good as Ironx but costs less and smells a little better. Removes iron deposits in paint and on wheels.
  • Cost
  • Smells better than Ironx
  • Still smells bad
