  1. Re: Switching to High Mileage Oil made a huge difference..

    If you have a leak, it is best NOT to switch to a synthetic from what I understand. While the viscosities are the same, for some reason a synthetic oil tends to leak more.

    My wife had an old Jeep...
  2. Re: Mother Natures Car Wash and Ceramic Coatings

    Great example, and I agree a waxed/sealed car never turned out as well after a rain as one which has been coated. When I used to use sealants, the vehicle would often be water spotted or simply look...

    Re: Best Sio2 spray ceramic

    I guess I let too much of my inner nerd show and no one caught the joke. Are there no fans of the movie, "The Pricess Bride" here?

    There is a scene where two of the characters are speaking in...

    Re: NEW McKess 37 pollen X

    Am I the only one who doesn't understand this product? I love many of the McKee's products and will continue to use them, but this just seems like they are going way too deep into niche products.

    Re: Britemax Remax vs. Reload

    I would say slickness isn't a factor in any of those cases and it comes down to the chemical makeup of the product.

    What I've observed is coatings, which often aren't as slick as waxes or...

    Re: TORQ 10FX stopped working ? Wth!

    Not to get this discussion too far off topic, but this is how I ended up with cheap DA. I knew it wouldn't get much routine use and that assuption turned out to be true. I started only using it...
  8. Re: Prefer to use soap or quick detailer for claying?

    I use my car wash solution to speed things up and clay as I'm washing the car. I've used QD's in the past, but found I actually like using the wash solution better.

    Great job on a seriously cool car!
  10. Re: New To Detailing a Car - Which Products Should I Consider?

    I'll try to avoid throwing too many product recomendations at you as it will get overwhelming fast. Others have already given good advice there, and I'm sure there is more to follow. I'll approach...
  11. Re: How often do you apply your spray sealant as a topper?

    Like many here, I use something after every wash.

    When I used sealants I would apply a QD or a spray sealant as a drying aid or do a post wipe-down to get rid of any water spots. With coatings...

    Re: 303 stained my headlamps?

    In the US, VW does use the high beam bulb running at a lower setting for non HID housings. At least that is how it was implemented on the Mk6 Golf's and Jetta's. I believe the Passats and Tiguan's...

    Re: 303 stained my headlamps?

    Agree. I never appreciated how much hotter halogen lights were than HID's until I owned a car with HID's. In the winter the halogen bulbs will keep at least a little opening at the focal point from...

    The 2010 is a Mazda3 hatchback, the 2012 is a Honda Fit, and the 2013 is a Toyota Highlander. The Mazda3 and the Highlander have halogen projector headlights, but the clouding/hazing is occuring at...

    Re: 303 stained my headlamps?

    I think it depends on where the lenses are coming from. I can only speak to personal experience, but my Japanese cars started to fade whereas my German car (VW, nothing special) still looks as clear...

    Re: 303 stained my headlamps?

    I think it has been addressed, but development costs are a big part of it and the small number which are sold. They aren't simply a lump of plastic. A huge amount of work goes into designing the...

    Re: 303 stained my headlamps?

    My thoughts too. The lenses look like they've simply started to oxidize from the sun, not the type of hazing I'd associate with a product being applied to the surface.

    I also find it interesting...

    Re: Polishes With The Easiest Wipe Off

    I'll put in another vote for Hyperpolish and also add the newly formulated Blackfire polishes/compounds. The old Blackfire products were good, but really oily and removal was a bit of a pain. The...
  19. Re: Optimum Opti-Bond still a relevant tire dressing?

    I found Duragloss 253 to actually hold up pretty well. If exposed to rain for several days or driven on a long trip in pouring rain it would certainly diminish, but would still be noticeably on the...

    Re: Sio2 Spray Coatings vs Sealants

    When you say "spray coatings" are you talking about something like CanCoat or CQuartz Lite?

    If so, I've found CanCoat to last a couple months longer than other sealants I tried and the self...
  21. Re: Optimum Opti-Bond still a relevant tire dressing?

    I'm not a fan of Optimum Opti-Bond tire gel either.

    I find it's easy to apply and I actually like the look after only applying one coat and letting it dry. However, it is not very durable. In...

    I found Poorboys Black Hole to be excellent on dark cars, and I can only assume their White Diamond would work well on light colored vehicles.

    I'm tempted to give Hyperwash a try when I use up my gallon of Optimum. Not because I dislike Optimum, but simply to gain experience with a different product.

    I think it is more localized. Some stores in some areas are much better than others. I hear similar stories occasionally, but I was in one of my local parts stores last night and the detailing...
