I have used these on previous cars which are usually kept for 3 years and they always stick well and fit to the contours of the doors.... just make sure you hit the right position first time !
They do have a blue tinge but thats not a problem for me.
They do what they are meant to do when positioned correctly.
Would recommend
I recommend this product!
I like:nice price, work well

Bought the brush this week and it did the job of cleaning the inside of my wheels well but as other reviewers have said it won't last long as the wire spindle on the brush is very weak and has bent back and forth after cleaning 4 wheels and it will snap soon ..... will be returning and getting a better quality brush
No, I do not recommend this product.
I like:works fine for now
I don't like as much:wire spindle weak and not really cheap

I have seen this product around for a few years now but never tried it until it was recommended by a friend this week....... Brilliant ... seems to work on everything from heavily soiled alloy wheels (with a bit of brush action) motorcycle and mountain bike.

Highly Recommended.
I recommend this product!
I like:works a treat on everything i tried it on
I don't like as much:a bit pricey for 1 litre

I bought this wheel cleaner thinking it was a bargain compared to other brand name cleaners.
it does take the muck off the wheels but be aware it ruins everything else with continued use..... the brake calipers & locking wheel nuts are ruined with rust and the finish on the wheels has become dull with dark streaks.
Avoid this stuff like the plague.... its acid based,
I would recommend using the biodegradable pink MUC remover instead.
No, I do not recommend this product.
I like:was cheap before the price increase
I don't like as much:ruins everything it touches

The Halfords Clear Door Guards protects doors and wing mirrors from scratches and dents.
 

How do I get them off?

I have bought some "clear" ref 772731 door
guards. They are when applied unfortunately not "clear", and I want to take them off... they look Purple on my titanium silver car, and are VERY noticeable. How do I get them off without damaging my doors. I'm afraid to pull at them in case it brings the paint off too.
Thanks.

i would warm them up with a hotair gun or hairdryer first to soften the adhesive a bit ,.... though i would be very surprised if they damaged the paint. any sticky residue left can easily be removed with panel wipe, wd40 etc

Do these come off?

Once these are applied can they later be removed? Will they damage the paintwork? Will they fit an '09 Ford Focus?

Is 5 litre the only size in this product

Is the Halfords value wheel cleaner acid based?

The value wheel cleaner is acid based as you will soon realise if you get it on your skin. It will ruin anything it touches including your brake calipers & their seals, your wheel nuts and the finish on your wheels.
AVOID this stuff and use muc off instead.
I have learned the hard (& expensive) way.
