    Re: Can you Believe this is a Hyundai

    Not sure I'd agree with some of the comments from fellow VN forum. It's a pretty universally accepted concept in the motorsports world that unsprung weight is the devil. Most of the time the...

    Re: Can you Believe this is a Hyundai

    Another advantage of going from 19" OEM wheels to aftermarket 18's is unsprung weight.

    For my autocross wheel set, I from 19x8 in the front and 19x8.5 in the rear to 18x8.5 square. I saved...

    Re: Can you Believe this is a Hyundai

    Those OEM wheels are probably really heavy too. The ones in the pictures above have a rally car look to them.

    I think a set of OZ-Racing Superturismo LM's would look really good on that car...

    Re: Anyone still use old school combos?

    I think I still have some of the Klasse Twins buried in my garage. Bought them somewhere around 2002, but I've long since moved on to other products.

    I have some 845 on hand as well, but also...

    Re: Can you Believe this is a Hyundai

    You make it sound like this is unusual. I don't think I've ever bought a car and NOT started looking at upgrades like wheels, tires, suspension mods, etc. Most of the time I never pull the trigger,...

    Re: Can you Believe this is a Hyundai

    It's funny that I don't mind the side vents. Maybe because I simply see them as a function of the mid-engine lay out. I do think they would look better if they were body colored and didn't have the...

    Re: Anyone still use old school combos?

    How do you define "old school combos"? Combinations of what?

    Based on some recent threads here, there are still plenty of people using carnauba waxes and all manner of sealants.

    Re: Can you Believe this is a Hyundai

    Glad it's not just me.

    I don't like the GV70 in pictures, but I've seen a couple on the road and they look amazing. They look like nothing else on the road and have a real presence that's hard to...

    Re: Can you Believe this is a Hyundai

    Better yet, a Soul N. Lower the thing a tad, give it more power and a DCT with the AWD and you'd have a little rally car. As-is the standard Soul is a shockingly good car.
  10. Re: Got an IK foamer, now need a wheel cleaner that is non acid and clings well

    A lot of it depends on brake pads and how the car is driven.

    My own personal experience for cars I maintain and wash frequently to keep them in good shape:

  12. Re: Wheel/tire detailing roller stand....recommendations?

    I did the bucket thing a couple times, but found it started to distort the shape of the bucket so I stopped doing it. This was with a wheel/tire set.

    Re: Product Suggestions to Avoid Water Spots

    The one I use, CarPro ECH2O, lists out ratios for waterless, rinseless, and QD on the label. If I remember correctly QD is 1:20. I think a couple other waterless washes do the same.
  14. Re: Protecting Soft Touch surfaces from degradation, is it possible?

    I've owned 2x BMW's and a VW over the years. All of them were in my garage for at least 6~7 years. My current BMW while only being in my possession for three years is pushing six years old. None...

    Re: Ceramic coating and humidity

    The lighter the color, the harder it is to see the flashing or hazing. White and silver are probably the worst. The last time I did a sealant on a white car I had a terrible time seeing the hazing...

    Re: Ceramic coating and humidity

    Ah, OK. I'd still expect it to haze slower and even then you might have to experiment to see the right amount of time wait before buffing.

    With CQuartz in high humidity, not only does it flash...

    Re: What happened to Autopia Forum?

    I haven't gone there today to see what I get, but they had a similar problem a week or two ago. Took them a few hours to fix it. Not sure if it is a result of maintenance going on in the background...

    Can't make any promises, but PM me when it gets a little closer. I'd be interested.
  20. Re: BMW Side Window Black Trim Restoration? Suggestions

    Trim restoral products will work well as long as you keep the wax and sealants off them. You might want to tape off those areas when applying the LSP to keep anything off that rubber trim.

    Re: Ceramic coating and humidity

    From my experience flash times on some coatings will be much longer. At your temperatures it probably won't be too bad, but when cool AND damp, it really stretches things out.

    Re: Ceramic coat 2nd coat

    If 12~24 hours is the recommended time line, I'd be tempted to wait longer until I had the time to do the job right. At that point, I would wash the car, give it another wipe down with a coating...

    Interesting. That is really strange. I use it only as a QD and never had a problem until it gets below 50F. In fact, I last used it weekend in temps around the upper 60's to wipe down my doors...

    Re: NEW NISSAN FRONTIERS HITTING THE LOTS.

    How is the size compared to the previous generation? I am far from being a "truck person", but have always felt the Frontier and Tacoma are the perfect size.
