    yea ive gotten tired of waxing but never give up. Especially 2 weeks ago i clay barred the car and then i put on some cleaner wax next and then some meguiars tech wax on top of that. The car is so smooth now I think it added like 20 more hp. so if you include the borla sticker under the hood i think im around 400 now.

    I hear you. I read the Zymol bottle and it said just do a small area at a time.

    After using it I know why. I applied it to my whole car and I seriously was not sure I would be able to get it all off. My arm felt like jelly by the time I was done.

    Old school paste waxes require much more elbow grease than the new tech waxes do...

    but Zymol does do a damn good job, just use it conservatively. Also w/ Zymol i tend to find places i missed like a week later, so i carry a towel w/ me.

    Oh, I agree I love Zymol. I only use it about once a year, I use Turtle Wax Color Cure Tech Wax most of the time. The Color Cure hides scratches and comes off real easy.

    I use this for scratches, it's what detail shops use - gotta put it on w/ the aerodynamics of the car tho not in circles, then wipe w/ a microweave cloth.

    I know this is irrelivant but I love your side exhuast. I was wondering how visible the cat back system is tho forom a distance. Also what kind of tips are those and how much did it cost? thanks.

    Not irrelivant at all, i appreciate the admiration. From a distance you can't see the actual bend unless your looking from a low angle then you may see the 90 degree bend and my high flow cats. They are Magnaflow dual wall rolled oval tips on each side - the cat-back itself just has a 3inch 2 1/2 peice connecting the x-pipe to the small maganflow barrel resonator then the bend to the side. Costed me about $280 to buy the parts from maganflow and the pipes, then weld it all together.
