I'm not into Concours - don't have a car good enough and cannot afford the running around but I have found the best material ( IMO ) for shining alloys. Down the years I have tried them all, old sheets, old towels, micro fibre cloth etc etc but having started to clean my alloys this week I have hit upon the best material so far. M&S socks - not just any M&S socks the ones with the day on them - excellent.

I'm from up north lad like you - only people in London can as a rule afford "a man".
