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 have Space Gray. It's a fantastic color, and as I've been taught here, the most color neutral of any BMW paint. While white is considered a boring color by many, I think it goes very nicely on...

Get the M. The "M package" is just cosmetic. I don't have iDrive and I don't miss it. I like the sleek look, and having less gadgets to go bad on my during long term ownership. But I suppose you...

I've never heard of gray rice. So I don't think you have a ricer.

I like White Rice.

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:...

I don't buy the "no soap" idea. That said, some soaps are a lot superior to others, IMO. Griot's has the highest lubricity I've tried, with the seemingly most wax friendly chemistry. Optimum is my...

Oh, the 3M will work well on those little black tar spots (as will other tar removing products). But be careful when around your wheels weights, as it's also good at removing the adhesives for them!...
