I've tried various products before on dashes of cars and I've either ended up with shiny or cloudy, I'm after something that will give me that nice clean look without being either shiny or cloudy... even the local EE car wash place manages to clean dashes without inducing either effect

Specifically it's on Audi dashes that I have this problem with

Also, if I was looking at cleaning my wheels with iron x, what would I used after that to seal them for winter?

Thanks

Pass on the dash as that's a black art!
But on the wheel carbon collective sealant is the daddy.

ASDA's Little Angels non scented baby wipes for the interior!

They don't leave any residue, are a very mild formula, and you can even leave a pack in the glove box in case of emergency!

Everyone should have a packet of babywipes in their car.  They are good for everything!

Poorboys wheel sealant gets my vote! Add it to the end of a weekly wash for a month, then just once a month top the sealant up (like you would normal wax).

Thanks for the tips guys - looks like I am off to ASDA later

Wheels, good tips, will see what the local stockist has out of those mentioned, I like a clean car and its especially harder during the winter, really need to get out there, she's disgustingly dirty at the moment!

Wheels I'd go for carbon collective like CJ mentioned. He recommended it to me and it's great stuff. I applied two coats to my wheels and it's reported to last 2 years!
