Just minutes from the Long Island Sound coastline, in a quiet, unassuming office and warehouse in Branford, Connecticut, Germany is advancing the state-of-the-art in car and motorcycle care technology. This is the home of Brookside Import Specialties, the importer of P21S and S100 products.

B.I.S. was founded by Steve Gay as an importer of German bolt-on automotive accessories. In the course of doing research with German car dealers, Steve became aware that Porsche dealers were coping with a growing host of unhappy car owners. The five spoke alloy wheels on the 911 were being instantly and irrevocably stained during routine washing! With replacement wheels costing $1,200. for a set of four wheels (an unheard of price at the time) something had to be done fast.

The culprit was wheel cleaners which were all acid or lye based (as many are today!). These cleaners quickly cleaned wheel covers which were standard on domestic vehicles but Porsche used forged aluminum wheels featuring five black center spokes with a polished outer rim that was clear anodized. Spraying Porsche alloy wheels with an acid or lye-based cleaner instantly removed the clear finish, staining the wheel a milky-white.

Steve found this wasn't happening in Germany where enthusiasts were using a pH-balanced, detergent-based wheel cleaning system with the funny name of P21S. Mr. Gay contacted the German chemical company manufacturing P21S and negotiated the rights to import P21S Wheel Cleaners into the United States.

P21S became an instant hit among German automobile owners. As word spread, Porsche, BMW and Mercedes-Benz dealers began selling and recommending P21S wheel cleaners to their customers! Steve and P21S had hit a home run!
