learn how to close your door man. close it by the handle, not by smearing your hands and fingers all over the side of your car

I think a lot of you are missing the contaminants in good ole well water. Hard water (calcium, magnesium, carbonate, etc) will over time deposit on the vinyl. It will appear as wax, but it is not. Any alkaline removal detergent will remove it but it's suggested that the only true way is to install an RO/DI filtration on your garden hose. You will eliminate the "bleaching" effect and also no longer need to dry your car. (suggested removal down to .01 microsiemen filters). I only use it on my car and not the wifes.. (priorities man)..

[x] MSD wires
[x] MBV
[X] Eibach pro kit
[ ] FM Wastegate (hit me up if your selling)
[X] N2MB boost box (you guys need this!)

I've modded/demodded this car twice in an attempt to sell her but just couldn't do it. 3X a charm???

i agree with that totally... armor all and back to black make the trim shinny and glossy but they amplify the sun light... almost like a tanning oil if you will... so i the end you have some burnt trim peices and they fade to white... the person who owned my car before must have loved the stuff because all my window sills are white I kinda want to take them off and paint/ replace them .... any hints?

I've been waxing the car with liquid glass and I've hit some trim and I"m pretty sure it doesn't turn it white like it used to on my SHO.. but I was using paste wax before..
