    Hey guys so I own a white 2019. Live in Colorado and deal with the grimey streets all the time after it snows. I am getting small pinhole sized rust spots all over where the wheels kick up debris. I have been told an iron remover should do the job? Anyone else having any issues with this? Best company in your guys opinion to use?

    The Adam's Iron Remover does not have nearly as offensive a smell as other brands.

    Here is a video to help you out:

    Its called Rail Dust. Small metal particles that stick to clear coat. Especially when yoi live where they salt and use chemicals. CarPro Iron-X will do the trick. Just dont leave it on yoir car to dry. This is how my truck looks like after winter in Chicago.

    Just got this for our X5 that is alpine white. Very small rust like particles you can barely see all over car.

    Use IRON-X. Just like I said don't let it dry on the vehicle. First spray down your car with water to take dirt off then spray Iron-X. Let it dwell for around 5 minutes and watch magic happen (all those spots will turn purple). If you have spots that are stubborn you can agitate it with sponge. Rinse the vehicle really good and wash it. All the spots will be gone. Like I said on winter time I use it almost every other car wash. Smells terrible but works great.

    Small spots I use Adams detail spray and clay to remove. Works great and fast.
