    Re: What should water beading look like?

    Nice!! Lol

    I guess I need help too. I love watching my 476S "blow dry" as I pick up speed to about 30mph 2 blocks from my house.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    You don’t need help. This is perfectly normal behavior. Just tell your friends that we at AGO said so.

    Rainy day. This is what I'm seeing. Compared to TW SNS, the beading is less pronounced. I have thought about getting a true coating or PPF on the front hood/bumper and roof, but I'm holding off because I don't think I'll have this car longer than 3 years.
