Wow, this is good info, Kat! I am planning to perform interim oil changes every 7,500 miles- so it's good to find an indy that the enthusiasts trust. Thanks for posting your insight!

Thanks, ILMC. I had talked to Josh Ottmann a while back (before I bought a PC 7424)- he had said that his Houston appointments are made 4 months in advance! I will try Mobileinq and see what he says...

I appreciate the help, ILMC. I'll have a detailer check it out before I proceed with anything. I've found it difficult to locate a good detailer in Houston- which is the reason for my "laziness," if...

I'll try to get some pictures of the defect this weekend and post here. It would be awesome if I could touch them up and put on the clear bra.

I haven't experienced this either, unless it's a true enthusiast (only twice in the past year). Usually, I see BMW drivers driving as if they are the only ones who own the road. But then, that's how...

Thanks for the insight, pointandgo. I have decided to hold off on the clear bra, until I can make my hood/bumper's paint flawless (i.e. resprayed). Since that won't happen for a couple of years, I...

It will stink if I have to wait for 4 years to get the hood resprayed before putting on a clear bra! :mad:

Paint Protection Film Swirl Marks

Hello all,
