Unfortunately many manufacturers fell into the trap of "re-branding" by letting saavy opportunists make a home in their marketing departments. And by the time they were done, we all got to see...

I've heard good things about German Castrol but it's hard to find in Canada. Some of it's being made elsewhere.

Washed it, and then Mother's Brazilian Carnuba wax and then after that a second coat with Simonize spray detail.

I bought a small rear trunk lip on Ebay and it came with 3M tape. Absolutely no problems with a commercial wand wash and also have gone through a regular automated car wash.

That looks fixable.

But if you are buying a replacement, I would lean towards the big LS. The 3GS styling looks good on the front but the back side profile doesn't work for me. Not that the LS...
