Gave it 1 more griots shine today before I trying the new stuff and took some pics also.
The wheelsa on my X5d looked like these on "Day One" 8 months ago. And, then again last weekend when I removed them & spent hours cleaning them after replacing the lousy OE pads with Porterfield Carbon Kevlars. Still not as dustless as my wife's E350, but, 1,000% better already.

I've tried various waxes & Meguiar's Ultimate seems pretty good. And, it's easy to apply.
