    Re: Design Flaws

    I run my F32 in F Street. Interesting class because it includes F3X BMWs, E90 M3's, current Mustang GT's and Caddy ATS's. I do OK, but we've got some REALLY good drivers and the cars in stock form...

    Re: Design Flaws

    Which Gens of BMW's? When I turn off the climate control, A/C, and then put the fan on the lowest setting (which might as well be off) it stays there through multiple on/off cycles. I'll do this at...

    Re: Design Flaws

    European cars in general since it's illegal and/or highly frowned upon to eat/drink in your car while driving. Many struggle to find a place for cup holders in cars delivered to the North American...
  4. Re: Hard Black Audi Paint Finishing Hazy swirls/marks

    Be careful going more aggressive since aggressive product/pad selection is what is causing the haze in the first place. A compound and correcting pad will get rid of bad swirls and scratches, but...
  5. Re: Hard Black Audi Paint Finishing Hazy swirls/marks

    The picture looks out of focus, so it's hard to tell what we're looking at.

    You Audi sounds like a Porsche Cayenne I worked on last year. It's paint was even harder than my black VW GTI, which I...
  6. Re: Why wheel cleaner causes brake disc rust?

    Are those parts actually rusting? All of the cars I've owned for quite a while had aluminum or some form of alloy brake calipers. The unpainted ones would get brake dust embedded in them, but they...
  7. Re: Why wheel cleaner causes brake disc rust?

    I'll just drive my car! :D

    In all seriousness, typically just pulling my car into the garage after a good wash and lightly riding the brakes will clean the rotor faces of any surface rust. I had...
  8. Re: Why wheel cleaner causes brake disc rust?

    What part of the brake rotor are you talking about. The hats, the outside edges of the rotors, or the faces of the rotors where the pads make contact. Any form of moisture will cause certain areas...
  9. Re: Best coating for looks and marring resistance

    Lots of great recommendations. Some I've not yet tried, but really want to.

    My only comment is not to focus on marring resistance. I highly doubt any coating will provide any marring resistance....

    Re: Tire Dressing Applicators?

    Thanks!

    Those brushes will work pretty well for our SUV, but unfortunately for my car with thinner sidewall performance tires like you see in DFB's pictures, I'll need something thinner. Might...
  11. Re: Another Newbie Question about Wolfgang SIO2 Paint Sealant

    I've used it twice. One vehicle received one layer, my car received two.

    The first vehicle wasn't mine, so I can't really say one coat was more/less durable than my car with two.

    From an...
  12. Re: Is Geek level cleaning worth it on white paint?

    This right here is your answer.

    I haven't/won't own a white car, but I used to question whether it was worth it too. Then I detailed a white pearl Genesis G90 and an Alpine White BMW 330. Both...
  13. Re: DP Tire Coating Fail - What'd I do wrong?

    This cannot be overstated. As I move from ownership of different goals, it's a guarantee I'll have different brands and types of tires. So far I don't think I've encountered any two tires which are...

    Re: Polish and Cermic coating suggestions

    I would also say there is a dramatic difference between polished out white and a white car that has been simply kept clean. In addition to the gloss, the actual color is different. Think fresh...
  15. Re: Will Wolfgang Ceramic Boost work with Wolfgang SIO2 Paint Sealant?

    It might, but I wouldn't recommend it for two reasons.

    1. It's not a very good product. I got a sample in an order a while ago and I found it really grabby and difficult to apply. Once applied...

    Well, this is interesting....

    Mike has/will be the person whose material I've always gone to when learning new skills and techniques in detailing. It was his YouTube videos on machine polishing...

    Re: Member location.

    I do find it helpful. For general conversations it isn't a big deal, but when getting specific about products or what will work in certain environments it is valuable. I feel bad when recommending...
  18. Re: BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating Black Edition

    It is a product you can use on any color of paint. I think "Black Edition" was added to the name to indicate it is more "special" than the other coating. I think Mike Phillips has a review of it...

    Re: Tire Dressing Applicators?

    I'll toss out a really dumb question here; I'm still absorbing my morning coffee...

    When using the brushes do you spray the dressing on the brush or the tire. When using a foam applicator I spray...
  20. Re: just got off the phone with an xfinity cable tech

    At least you got it working.

    Years ago we had a nearby lightning strike which hit close enough to energize some of the cable company lines in the ground leading to our house. Cooked the modem and...

    Re: Tire Dressing Applicators?

    That brush you use here looks interesting. I think I'd like that better than the one I linked above. It would be much easier to hold and manipulate while applying a product.

    I've used the...

    Re: Megs APC stained windscreen.

    It doesn't look like it from the pictures, but the car doesn't have a heads-up display does it? Cars with that feature often have a coating on the inside of the glass to allow the HUD to work. Even...

    Re: Polish and Cermic coating suggestions

    I agree with the Rupes yellow pads. I've only got one in my inventory of pads to try out, but I make sure to rotate it in every time I work on a car.

    I've had great luck with the Griots BOSS...

    Re: Spray Sealant Water Behavior

    Depends I guess.

    To those of us here, yes, because it's more accurate. To the general shopping public, maybe not, because everyone has seen a "coating" add on their social media platform and...

    Re: Tire Dressing Applicators?

    I've seen you mention this before and the brush you use, but how would it work on a car with lower profile tires? Would the same brush work or would you need to go with something smaller like this: ...
