I agree. If you use Toyota filters, you're good for 10k miles. I don't use Toyota filter so I change it every 5k miles.

The Carrera GT has always been one of my favorite sounding cars. I was pleasantly surprised Porsche could pull off such a nice sounding engine given their history of working with non-V10s.

Check out either the Sun Joe SPX3000 or SPX3001 if you're looking for corded electric. Both are well regarded machines, especially under $180.

I've used the Costco MF on my paint before and while it never did anything damaging to the paint, it does seem to leave lint behind.

Unless you're buying an RX that's over 70k miles, most 2015 should be under the CPO warranty if you buy from Lexus. I think it's worth buying one with CPO warranty. As reliable these cars are, there...

Washed my car today and I remembered this thread so I took a video. Sorry if the video is shaky. I had a large blower on one hand and my phone on the other.

Yes. The same coating on your paint that hardened will harden on the towel too. You don't want to be using the same cloth to wipe down panels otherwise you might as well use sandpaper. lol It's not...

Could you take a picture of paint in the sun (showing the swirls)? I find M205 adequate for most decent paint. If I need something more aggressive, I'll use a cutting pad, then go over again with a...

Salt Lake City to Park City

How's the drive from SLC to Park city in early January on the I-80? This will be my first time in the state of Utah so I'm not sure what to expect as far as winter goes.

Other than the obvious (go...

Never gotten a scratch from using a leafblower. It's almost impossible unless you're drying your car in the middle of a sandstorm.

Many times I thought about buying a master blaster, but it would...

It's normal if all they did was blob onto the paint. You're not going to achieve perfect leveling without either sanding it down or using something like the Langka Blob Eliminator. I wouldn't sweat...

I find CQuartz is relatively easy to apply. It's self-leveling so as long as you cover the paint surface, you're good. Just don't let it sit too long before wiping off the excess.

ONR is flexible. There is a different dilution ratio (instruction on the bottle) to make quick detailing solution. This is what I mainly use ONR for.

A good quality microfiber cloth won't scratch the surface. If you're getting scratches, it's likely dirt is still on your paint and the cloth is dragging it around.

Look into rinseless wash. It's...
