I think that is a severely gross overstatement about "30K". I think some would even say that it's still a gross overstatement at 60K. I change my brake fluid, coolant, PS fluid, plugs, oil, pretty...

Recommendation is to change the brake fluid every 2 years. A few do it more often, particularly those who track their cars, and a few wait longer. I do mine slightly more frequently than the...

All of mine are the Mercury Pro + I believe, which is overkill for most of my uses. I don't need...

Hi. My opinion: skip the polisher for now. Unless you are ready to polish, I say spend your money a bit differently as far as product choices.

No worries about what sealant goes with what wash....

I've rinsed my truck before with no soap. Every time I wash the BMW, I prerinse it. I still don't agree with you. I will not polish my car to clean it, because that is just crazy talk. :confused:...
