Yo - where is Geoff...I want his opinion on this wax...is FF really better or is he just getting some sort of kick back?

Thanks...for those in the MidWest or anywhere with available real estate...that is a Zero Lot line in sunny CA. I have no complaints though since the house has more than doubled in value in 2 years.

Great looking car, Agent! We have the same color, except I have the black interior. Because of the weather, Ive only driven mine 2 days out of the week Ive had it, so at this rate, it should keep that new car shine like yours

Come on now boys and girls...Photopoint tells me my pix have been hit 1600+ times...what do you think of the finish? Does 3M Show Car Wax and Gloss Enhancer pass the test or does FF or Zaino look a lot better?

I would really like to know people's thoughts.

The finish is amazing. Wow !!! My IS is graphite Grey. I always thought graphite Grey is the best color. After seeing your car. I think I make it a mistake on color.

Wow !!!! Wow !!!!! Wish my car would look like that.

Where the swirl marks there before or after the wax job. Is the material a liquid and kind to clear coat pain jobs? Iam using Finish 2000 and it works well!!!!! and it si simple, wipe on wipe off, no elbow grease and NO swirl marks, lasts a long time and gives the car the WET look.

Finally downloaded these pix...I just finished up with the 3M Show Car Wax... I am still working on my own detailing technique. I can see some "swirl" action but I cleared that up since then.

Hey AS do you ever pull up to the wrong house? My friend used to live in ANaheim Hills and i could never find his place, every threee houses are the smae out thier!! But those houses are nice, oh yeah nice car i love that color, are swirl marks that big a deal on that color? To me it look almosst like the same color on the Civic SI the Electron Blue Pearl (THAT WAS NOT A FLAME) which doesn't get swirl makrs, SBM must be darker in person.

Yeah - the architecture is somewhat lacking...but it is better than some of the crack houses I used to storm.

I think the majority of the swirlies were there before ~ upon delivery. I tried the Vertical pattern on the sides but I will use 3Ms swirl remover first.

I am pretty pleased with it...price wise it was about $16...I think if all the hype for FF is true it might be worth it to sink a couple of more bucks into that.

Very sweet looking ride... I just picked up my IS last week so I can't give any opinions about the wax just yet.

Scott.
