Washed the R with this stuff. Worked well and the car had a lot of really greasy dirt on it. Tried the Turtle Wax Ceramic Wet Wax. Had my doubts, and have not seen the car in the sun yet, but this stuff seems to be the shit. I did use the Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray Coating a few months ago and have not washed it since. Can't set a bone dry mc towel on it as it will slide off a not totally flat surface.

And all made in the USA. Very inexpensive too.

Did you need any paint correction prior to application?

Made an appointment to say goodbye to the abomination that is Fender "premium" audio.
My last car had a 10 speaker Dynaudio surround system with a giant speaker in the middle of the dash.
I feel like I'm listening to a transistor radio with this fender system.

Decided to go with the Audison Bit One, Amp, Sub, replace the speakers in all 4 doors, the tweeters and some dynamat.
Hopefully I'm making a good decision as I'm already feeling a bit of sticker shock and I haven't even dropped my car off yet.
The setup sounded great in the showroom.

Here's my car after being washed about once a week for 4 years through an automatic car wash with brushes.

Had the wife’s car ceramic coated, fixing a spot the factory had wet sanded and scratches from the in-laws dog jumping on the door.

Neither of those things were a reason for having it done, but the paint is absolutely flawless now and looks a million times better than new.


A few hours later the wife curbed a wheel pretty bad lol, which took me a day to notice. Moral of the story is shit happens no matter how hard you try to keep it perfect.




Ha! I curbed my front right wheel with 400 miles on my new GTI! I have been driving a truck for so long and never had to worry about that. Luckily it is on the edges and you can't even see it unless you go looking for it. Need to learn how to park a car again...LOL

Paint looks awesome. But your statement nailed it....that's why I stopped maintaining my wife's car's paint and interior....between her, my daughter and two dogs...it was a losing battle

What car was that, with the Dynaudio? CC Executive?

yeeeeeeeeeeeah I want to know the weight of that beast.....

I’d bet like 19 lbs, being an OEM forged optional equipment for a “super”car like an R8.
