My car is Jet Black, so I have been using Z-5 primarily. When I get really motivated, I'll put the final coat of polish on using Z-2. I use Z-6 diluted with distilled water between coats of polish...

Sterling Silver

I actually had the car dipped into a vat of sterling silver. Expensive, but what a shine. :D

I'm not much of a photogarpher, so I really can't explain why a Jet Black car would look like this in...

Zaino!

Yeah, I'm hooked too! Love the interior products as much as the polishes. Once a year I do the whole Dawn wash, clay bar and multi-layer treatment. About six months later I do another polish...

Pick the 2008

If you search the forums a bit I think you'll find a lot of comments about a lack of oil cooler in the 2007 models. I believe they started adding one to the car in 2008. I own a 2008 and it has an...

Don't Blame the Tires

I don't think the brand really matters. It's more an issue with driving habits. I just passed the 18,000 mark on my OEM Michelin PS2 runflats. I'm estimating I've got another 18,000 miles left on...

Thanks for the replies. Makes sense that if the manufacturers feel they have a more competitive product ready-to-go that they should get it to market as quickly as possible. The thing was, I was...

Did I Miss a Year Somewhere?

I took ED on a 2008 335i in May 2008. I believe the MY 2009 cars were coming out in late Aug or Sept that year. Now I'm reading about MY 2011 and my car hasn't even had its second birthday yet! ...

It is amazing the highway mileage these cars can get. I'll be clearing the trip statistics before I leave - it will be interesting to see the 2400 mile results.

Jammin' to the pod
