    Black spots on alloys

    Been detailing my partner's SLK and I am struggling to get millions of tiny black dots off one of the alloys. I have tried T-cut and tar remover to no avail. I'm pretty sure they aren't iron as we had the same black spots on a previous car and Iron-X did nothing. Any ideas what would shift them?

    The problem with white cars... tar spots!

    So it's only been 1 month and already my car is covered in tar spots!!! I've just been out to clean my car (which was a very cold and icy experience) and when drying off noticed them.

    What are these spots on the camshaft? Oil Gunk or Corrosion?

    Is this engine gunk, or is this actually metal that has corroded? I'll assume it's like this all along both shafts. Is this normal for car with 150,000 miles? or is it because it was poorly taken care of? I have to admit, that I did go for almost 9,000 miles without an oil change the last time...
