Back of 135i

When I wash my car I find the back to be a little more difficult to clean. I have to really put a lot of pressure on the glove in order to try and remove dirt. Is there a cleaning agent that would break down the dirt a little better?

Apply an all purpose cleaner first or mix a little in with your wash soap. I use blackfire APC on my lower panels and it helps a lot.

Make sure you keep a good coat of sealant on your paint and that dirt should come off easier. I would avoid any of the stronger cleaners as I think they will just strip off wax/sealant. I use some of the stronger cleaner on my paint only when I am washing the car getting ready to do a polish and sealant application. Try a good sealant like Menzerna power lock or Blackfire and I think you will find the dirt comes off easy. The paint will be smooth and slippery!
