Thank you. Yes, that is exactly why I like it. I never really pay attention how long it lasts. If it doesn't rain it'll stay fairly shiny the entire time but after the first big rain, the car is usually dirty to warrant a wash so having shiny tires doesn't help lol. This is based on my black Accord.

I believe that you can buy it at Pep Boys. I get it through a friend of mine who buys his detailing equipment by the gallon as he does it professionally.

Must admit its a pain to rub down though compared to just spraying the wet foam and doesnt last as long. Just thought id share. :P
My buddy has 303 in his arsenal of detailing products and he loves it. I haven't used it but wouldn't be adverse to it.

Here is the hog filling up. Drank premium at 19.4MPG this tank.

Also washer her again today and put on the winter tires. The accessory wheels make the wheel wobble on the freeway which my wife failed to notice lol. Couldn't let that stand. Next year they're getting new tires anyway.

You can also somewhat see the running boards I installed.

Cell phone pic again

Had a friend of mine, get the MDX ready to get through the winter. One stage polish on the hood and a sealer on the paint. Next spring the MDX will get full paint correction.

Hello snow white, great pics. In the first few pics you have different rims, can you provide details on size and brand?

Thanks,

sports running boards are nice. Any advantage over the advanced running boards (that are wider)?

Looks nice, but all MDXs look bald without the roof rack!

We would have gotten white exterior, but it is not offered in black interior. I hate Honda/Acura for their choice of color combinations.

I didn't really consider them because I wasn't aware of them.

I prefer the clean look but will most likely get a rack on it for hauling application.

Yes, I agree. Very few Honda/Acura you can get with a white exterior and a black interior and even then, it's rare.

I've been meaning to update this for a while...on Dec 30th a crazy lunatic side swiped my wife's car while changing lanes. We pulled over (I was in my Accord) and while I was waiting for him to pull out his insurance information, I got a picture of his plate. Being in the road he suggested we pull into a parking lot which was fine by me. After pulling into a parking lot, he decides to book it. Gen was on the phone with the cops almost immediately after the accident so she was able to have them find the guy relatively quickly.

Car is in the shop and will be getting a new quarter panel, wheel is being reconditioned, alignment will be performed, and the bumper is repairable. Damage estimate is around $2100 right now and should be done between Wednesday and Friday next week.

Here is the aftermath...

Well I'm happy that you and your wife are o.k. and you ended getting the SOB that tried to run away. I's like to know if the Acura dealership gets you original Acura parts.
Good-luck!

Yes, good call on grabbing the license plate! What was his reaction when he was tracked down? Total a-hole.

Not sure what his reaction was because we were at two different places. Must have been pretty bad though.
