    I noticed these spots during my last few washes. Dust, etc. comes off easily but these spots are stubborn. Paint is very smooth, so not sap. Spots are not really orange, so I'm thinking not rust. They mostly appear on the hood, roof and top of trunk, not side body. They do come out with a wet MF...

    Hey guys, Short time lurker on this forum-Thank you all for all the knowledge,help, support and jokes I read and benefited from.

    Hey all, I'd like to start off by saying I am new to the forums because I'm new to BMW. I love my car and it had very few issues at the time of purchase. This one was caused by a dumb decision by myself capped off by a detailer who messed up (going to be talking to him next week in person)...

    I'm selling a foam cannon that I no longer use. I bought it about 2 years ago and have since moved into an apartment and no longer have my pressure washer (required to use) with me so the cannon is no longer being used. I only used the cannon three times before I had to move, so it's essentially...

    I have a 2001 330i. I took it for a car wash yesterday and drove around a few more miles. It was 25-28 degrees and a sunny day. When I got to work I obviously parked my car and it sat, still a little wet. 8 hours later I return to my car. Everything works, headlights, keyless locks, radio etc...

    Hello everyone, Happy Holidays. I recently received my new 2012 BMW F30 320i xDrive and realized that the dealer put Innovection, BMW's original body coating, on it. I had wanted to wash, clay, and wax the car but am now unsure if I should do it or not. Regarding Innovection, I searched the...

    I'm lazy. REALLY lazy. So I am thinking about doing the following with my F10: - Professional auto detail every ~9 months. - Take it in for a wash every month or so. My questions are the following (TJPark01 are you out there? I know you're into this stuff!): 1. Does that 9 month / 1 month...

    I park my car outside (garage is full) year long without a cover and was wondering how often other people wash/wax their car? I try to do it at least once a month, but I live in Northern California, so the weather here is quite mild compared to the rest of the country.
  14. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Just wondering if anyone has used this kit, which consists of the spray wash and what looks like very nappy towels. With the temps lowering quite a bit, I was going to possibly pick up a kit, hoping scratching won't be an issue. http://www.griotsgarage.com/product/11347.do

    Meguiar's Quick detail WITHOUT USING WATER! Before & after pix... So after our first rain of the year in Southern California, I had a chance to do a quick 10 minute detail on the car before I drove it off for Turkey day... Since most California counties are on water conservation notice, I...
