ZYMOL.

Mequiar, Mother's, Turtle Wax, and all those other brands seem to come out with a "OUR BEST EVER" wax every other month.

They only say that so they can get more people to buy their products. It's all a sales gimick for the company, they may alter the ingredients a little though.

lol. Well my personal experience, turtle wax just completly sucks on dark colors, mothers is good, but I dont care for there wax, just cause it tends to leave these little white specs in the paint that I have to do some rubbing to get off, and well meguiars is the best ive used on a black car. It does what its suppossed to do, and makes it really easy to clean or wax a car. Ill never switch, nor go back. Meguiars for life. And my proof is in my facbook pictures. lol. But thats my two cents.

Versa S,

Try Zymol, dude. It's expensive ($13.99 @ AutoZone), but the difference is worth it.

3M clear laminate bra $300-400, ask the dealer. Or ask a tint shop to cover it with clear security film, my buddy got it done to his S2000 for $200.

Nah I'm not going to bother now. It's already ruined. Plus I've seem cars with clear bras and they are full of nicks and dings. So after a while that would bother me. My next car will get a bra for long roadtrips.

I might try it one day, but the megiuars tech wax 2.0 was $18, and it was worth every penny!!! But when that bottle is gone, I may try that Zymol.

Haha, I agree. Me and my gf were thinking about taking a trip to FL one of these days (like it seems never) lol, and I was gonna spend the money for a bra for my V for if we go, or when I take my trip to MD one day. I have family up in MD, and after my friends wedding in september, I was thinking about going up there, but we will see. But thats the only time id put the bra on. Id take it on and off only when on trips. I really dont wanna be scrubb n love bugs off when I get back, lol. She has an 04 chrysler sebring convertible V6, and would love to take her car, but shes got like 105,000 miles on it, and its due for a tune up. So I dont care to take her car with over 100,000 miles on it, to long trips. I mean, when we got a new car sittn out front with only 7,000 miles on it, and gett n 30mpg, why not? lol

Brian: Ya the Versa is nice for road trips. We took my Versa down to Myrtle Beach when it was only a few months old. We got great gas mileage since it was all highway, and the cruise control was on.

Unfortunately the bra does not work with the sport bumpers. As I would seriously like to get it just for road trips. Everytime I come home from driving to Toronto or Buffalo, the bottom lower grille/bumper looks mangled....

Unfortunately the car is to drive so it's bound to happen. I'm taking her to the airport tomorrow and then she'll sit there for the week
