Depends on how much time I have.


My usual used to be:

Two bucket method
Mitt
If there were bugs/tar I would soak with any road/tar remover
Meguiars NXT car shampoo
Meguairs NXT synthetic liquid wax
Mothers quick detail for the rims
California Silicone squeegee and clean cotton towels to dry
Invisible Glass for the windows
Whatever tire shine was medium priced
Turtle Wax ICE for the interior

Now, if the car is really dirty I wash it with a power washer and the use Wet Paint for the body and windows. Love the stuff!

I would probably go with a powder coat black rim and see about painting your calipers red. That or gun metal color

I have gold rims lol and I love them. I'm not looking to change mine.
But even on a gray car, gun metal rims plus red calipers would be cool haha

I just recently Wash my Versa, I would highly recommend using the turtle wax interior carpet cleaner, but take the brush head off and use a terry cloth.

I vacuumed (with interior brush), wiped with terry cloth and cleaner, vacuumed again and then hit it with a lint roller and had my interior almost showroom, still trying to clean out the cracks in the center console from the original owner.

Try some other stuff and you won't think so lol. Some of their stuff isn't too bad though, particularly certain Ice products such as the interior cleaner. I think there are plenty better waxes out there though.

Agreed.

Turtle Wax products are at the bottom of the quality chain. I too use their ICE interior detail gel simply because it was on a great sale.

Well I don't trust any other brand except the Mother's Detailing products.... because I am using that brand from when I was 18 and never have any complain of its products. I also used many other brand's products but not satisfied or you can say I am a loyal customer for Mother's.

Agreed, stay away from Armor All

I use Black Magic for everything except car soap, that is Eagle One.

Soon I am going to try Meguiars White Wax.
