    Re: The Season of Discontent is upon us...

    I do pay attention to the interior a bit more, but washing is still a challenge. We've got a few days of 70-ish weather coming later this week, but sadly they will be weekdays and not the weekend. ...

    Re: 303 Graphene

    Between those two choices, the Griots are far and away the better products. Even if you can't find them locally, they are worth ordering and the slight wait.

    Re: CarPro Reset or Megs HyperWash?

    Not that I'm aware of. I've had a jug for over a year now and it still seems to be OK. It doesn't appear to go bad like Gold Class or some others do.

    Re: Paint protection advice

    If I understand you correctly, you just recently applied a good layer of Wolfgang DGPS and then topped it BSD a little later? How long ago was this?

    My vote is to leave the vehicle as-is and...

    Re: SEMA 2021/2022 New Products

    Totally agree. Most the products would stand or fall regardless of graphene in them. I'm all for going with a new product if it provides better performance or a proven advantage over others. At...

    Re: The Season of Discontent is upon us...

    I've found icy conditions are where the winter tires really make the difference. When you run a winter tire vs an all season on ice covered roads, the difference is quite noticeable. Many of the...

    The season of discontent is officially upon me. Made the swap tonight. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20211119/7c03fb34004e4b8e377d5d02925e2c6b.jpg

    Re: Scratches that turned out to be glue

    Not to mention some of the best driving cars on the road. I don't think I've ever been behind of the wheel of a Mazda and not like it, whether it was a car, SUV, or a Miata. The balance, steering...

    Re: Ceramic Coating Recommendations

    Great advice is the post, but I thought I'd add to this comment.

    CarPro may call Elixr a QD spray, but after going through a bottle I'm not sure I agree. It didn't seem to have much cleaning...

    Re: Scratches that turned out to be glue

    Looks good. I had a similar situation many years ago when I purchased a new car. I told the dealership not to detail before delivery and was left with those glue marks all over the car. I too...

    Re: SEMA 2021/2022 New Products

    I think we've all started to become rather jaded. At this point most of our favorite manufactures all have a pretty extensive line of products already. Many for things we didn't even know we needed...

    Re: HYUNDIA SANTA CRUZ

    I had no idea the bed is so short. If it won't even carry a bike, the usability isn't very good.

    I bet you can buy one of those bed extension things that you mount with the tailgate down to...

    Re: HYUNDIA SANTA CRUZ

    It is a Tuscon with the back chopped off. It's a direct competitor to the Ridgeline, though a little smaller, and the in-bound Maverick.

    I'm not a truck person at all, but if I had the mind to...

    Re: Coating a White BMW X3 with Carpro SiC

    So, not even a haze? I assume then there is a little trial and error to figure out the timing when it can be removed without smearing yet not get too tacky?

    Re: *Your first car*

    YES!!! My dad had a '79 with the four-speed manual. I learned to drive in that car and drove it all the way thought high school when my dad wasn't at work. RWD in that tiny car did make it a rally...

    Re: Griots 3 in 1 ceramic wax after polish

    Probably better than the terry cloth towels, some of which strangely like beach towels, hanging from various objects at the back of the wash and service bays I've seen.

    At our Honda dealer, I...

    At dealerships here in the US the porters/valets are often the lowest layer of the dealership labor pool and do more than move cars about; typically all the stuff the sales and service staff don't...

    Re: Nanoskin Wash Mitt; Fail

    I realize the entire weekend has passed and you've probably moved on, but one the best QD's I've ever used is the OTC Meguiars' QD in the maroon bottle. Hopefully it's still sold at big box or auto...

    Re: Coating a White BMW X3 with Carpro SiC

    I own an SUV (wife's daily) and have done a couple of my neighbors. They aren't fun at all, but since we have one in the family fleet it's simply a necessary evil. Kind of like having to drive them...

    I did a little reading at Chemical Guys web page just to make sure I wasn't going to speak incorrectly. Blacklight is simply a glaze with some sealant added in. It will not provide any correction. ...
