I was surprised at this also. Seems like that should be standard on every vehicle, just like cup holders.

Cream is a pretty accurate description of the color. BMW makes a lighter color closer to true white but it's not available on the X5. I saw it on a 6'er. Here's a shot of the exterior with 20's.

Just took delivery of my X5d tonight. For everyone else that got theirs, did it come with the iPhone cable? I figured it would be in the glove or center console but it's not.

Flex XC vs. PC 7424

Any thoughts? There's quite a price difference. I'm thinking the Flex is more for the professional detailer vs. the weekend consumer.

I did follow the instructions which I believe was for 48 hrs. I still get the streaks. I wonder if it has anything to do with keeping the duster in the garage where it could get hot.

To DAP or not to DAP?

Thinking of getting the Porter Cable Dual Action Polisher 7424. Is there any downsides to using this besides the cost? It seems like a lot of people here still apply their waxes and polishes by hand.
