    Advice on cleaning triple black X3

    First off I've searched and read most of the threads I could on cleaning... Lemon pledge... never knew!

    Has anyone used the Slick Products ATV/UTV wash kit? https://www.slickproductsusa.com/col...v-utv-wash-kit
    It seems nice but expensive considering the parts of the kit can all be had for much less via Amazon. If the kit is better than the generic cleaners online, is it 50% more expensive better?

    Next, what is good recommendation for a 1/4 inch connect foam cannon? The one that slick sells is $50 which is above average in cost when comparing to similar items on Amazon.

    As always, thanks for the replies! I've learned so much via this forum in the short 2 months of owning my X3.

    That slick stuff doesn’t work that good. I bought that kit a few years back. Still have it. Not worth it. Anything strong enough to clean it is hard on the plastic. I wish there was something that worked good.

    Good for painted surface as well as the plastics? Or will it damage the painted surfaces (like the doors)?
    Inside and out? I.e. OK for dash, center console, etc as well as the exterior plastics?

    Smells like bubblegum. I used the last of the can I had today. Not sure why I spent 4 hrs detailing it. It will be covered in dust or mud after the first 20 minutes of my next ride. LOL I guess because X3s look SO GOOD when they are clean!

    Hollywood wears Maxima SC-1 as cologne I'm pretty sure.

    The stuff does smell good, works even better. Thanks to Hollywood I bought a case.
