    Re: Does AG have 30% off?

    I've never seen anything over 25% and I've been shopping here and at the sister Autopia site for a long time. Maybe they do, but I must have missed it...

    Re: Griot’s 3-1 Topper/Maintenance

    Since Griots 3-1 is already a spray product, which should make it really easy and fast to use, why not simply add another coat of 3-1 vs topping it with another product?

    While it's probably a...

    I've not had many water spotting issues after moving from sealants to coatings. It could be the difference in climate, but the sheeting and general water properties of a good coating made things...

    Re: 2011 WRX Paint Correction

    Hyperpolish is just a polish. You'll need some sort of LSP to protect the paint after using it.

    Re: 2011 WRX Paint Correction

    On other Japanese cars with soft paint I've successfully used Meguiar's Ultimate Polish, DP Polish, Optimum Hyper Polish, Sonax 04-06, and Blackfire's Polish.

    The Meguiars is OK, but the others...
  8. Re: Looking for safe strong aluminum wheel cleaner on Ford wheels

    I think the products Mike recommended are available in auto parts and big-box stores. Pretty sure I've seen the Meguiars product, not positive about the Mothers, but it might be.

    Re: What will your next ride be?

    Interior is very well made. My ONLY real complaint outside the size is the ride. It's too soft and floaty for me, but many people like it. Having now ridden in three generations of the car it is...

    If you area fan of Buick's and Caddy's, I think the Genesis is your next logical option.

    Re: CanCoat Application Problems

    This is what I would do when I found high spots. I never seemed to see them until long after the product had dried. A soft foam pad and a little finishing polish always did the trick. Unlike some...

    The green Griots wheel cleaner is my favorite. It's pretty gentle, but yet still cleans well.

    Re: What will your next ride be?

    The new Bronco has so much pent up demand and so much attention, it will be interesting to see if production will be able to keep up. I've heard of some dealerships getting hundreds of deposits.

    Re: What will your next ride be?

    I'm really torn because the market today has a distinct lack of usable, fun cars with RWD.

    My tastes are pushing me towards something like a C7 Vette, Supra, or Cayman. However I also need...
