    Re: New M340i - Help me decide what to use!

    Awesome vehicle and beautiful color. That blue is what would be the final cherry on top of any dream car for me. Is this the X-drive or RWD?

    In case you want another vote, Iíll only suggest...
  3. Re: Meguiar's D155 Last Touch vs Meguiar's D156 X-Press Spray Wax

    All these QD and spray wax products are very lubricated. Keep a good wiping technique and good MF towels and assume the spray product is holding up on its end wiping safety.

    If you want to clean...
  4. Re: Do Coatings Provide MORE Gloss than Sealants or Waxes?

    There’s no right answer, there’s gloss meters but if we want to assume “shine” includes some ‘eye of the beholder’ beauty, you’ll get many different opinions. Gloss meters measure gloss but carnauba...

    Re: PBL Diamond Paint Coating

    I can’t answer exact shelf life either, but the wheel and glass coatings last years. I’ve only had the paint coating for a short time and yet to use.

    Re: Quick winter wash/ wax recommendations

    Just to follow up even though it seems you’ve alleviated your concerns anyways with yellosuzku, the coating bonds enough before the water spots would ever dry, and water spots aren’t too bad in the...

    Re: Quick winter wash/ wax recommendations

    At the point you’ve used Hydro Blue or Hydroseal, the product has mixed with the water you rinsed with and it essentially becomes the coating. You won’t get water spots under the coating, the...

    Re: Quick winter wash/ wax recommendations

    Hydroseal and Hydro Blue donít require drying afterwards, itís only recommended for the same reason anyone would want to dry after any wash: prevent water spots/marks. If you are OK rinsing the car...

    Re: PBL Paint Coating

    Good choice. I didn’t realize you were specifically talking about PBL Booster (I’m assuming you are now). I would only include that in your routine if you really feel the need to touch the paint...

    Awesome work, Eldo! This caddie looks amazing now. I was a bit nervous scrolling down after you first showed the interior shots but you cleaned that up amazingly well. The car is now fit for you! ...

    My take, in addition to others’:
    1) You can use ONR... not optimal to keep coating characteristics but it’s not going to cause noticeable differences mist likely if you don’t want to purchase N-914...

    Re: Ceramic (type) quick spray?

    And if you want to try the Merlin but have reservations about squandering liquid gold without knowing the results... try a 16oz bottle (1/2oz Cosmic) or even an 8oz (1/4oz Cosmic) mix.

    I should...

    Re: Ceramic (type) quick spray?

    Try EcH20 at 15:1 or 20:1. IMO it has plenty of lubricity, which isn’t a knock on CarPro’s recommendations, but a compliment to the lubricity of the product. I use 15:1 for WW and I go down to 20:1...

    Note that unprotected paint tends to hold on to water pretty equally, so it may also dry fairly quickly. This compared to beads which are piles of water that can actually dry rather slowly (when a...

    Add CarPro Elixir, which I haven’t used but should meet your needs. I like the PBL SiO2 Detailer.

    Some waxes (or hybrid sealant/waxes) also fill better than others. Most carnauba waxes fill well in my experience. Megs NXT/M21 fills really well but they may have enough cleaning power to impact...

    Midnight Sun should look great too. Similar to Fusion, looks good on everything including metallic. Can’t go wrong with either.
