Zaino.

It is not a sealant and it is not a wax, it's a polish that is tough and seems to last a long time.. On my cars it lasts a full year. It's easy to apply and it leaves no residue on other...

The side mirrors are much smaller than my...

Offer them $1,100 firm. If they agree, buy it. If they don't, just pass on it. I had a 550i with 19" for 4 years and I never had to replace a tire or wheel. I did not buy the insurance for my new...

Low pressure means that it just needs air or you might have a flat that needs repair. You don't need to replace the wheels to switch to non-runflat tires.
