Now, now, simmer down boys. I wuz jest funnin' with Worm. Heck, I lived in CA for a year in '97.....Sunnyvale, that is.
Biggest problem I had there with my Black GS300 is the same as I have here.....dust and pollen. Some local thar fixed m' up with a California Duster and and a car cover......not too many car covers heah in Texas tho. 1) If you put one on, you hear a lot of snickers from the natives as in, "y'all must be from Californeea" and 2) there are none made that fit over bull horns.
Thanks for the compliments...wife and I both love black cars, but you pay the price to have them look good. Lotsa pollen for the past month or so, so we only get a few days worth of beauty before they need another bath!
Rob - I think there are probably a couple-dozen coats on there @ this point...maybe even 30. But I have used 3M SSR a few times, which would've removed some.
I completely stripped the GS a few weeks ago to claybar and 3M, and it has just 3 coats on it now -- there's NO comparison between it and the MDX. Maybe I'll ZFX it to play catch-up!
rvehock - thanks. Re: BSMs...those aren't the OEMs (obviously) as I put 'em on right when we got the car in Jan 01. I'm actually going to pull them off and put on the Acura OEMs. The problem w/these is that they're "true" black whereas the paint is metallic w/a hint of dark blue in the sun. The more Zaino that goes on, the less these particular BSMs match.
I think the OEMs from Tim will be a bit more subtle but still provide the protection (in addition to being color-matched). I'm a fan of the look of the BSMs on the MDX. Most important: -zero- door dings in 15 months of ownership. (knock on plood)
I think when Sam Adams first came out it was considered a micro.
Native to San Jose is Gordon Biersch, with 3 varieties, one of my favorites.
Oregon has a few good ones, one of the more interesting is Hefeweizen from Portland.
Well, you just got to jump in your X and come down here and do a survey. A lot has changed.
When I was stationed in Wa. state, we made weekend journeys to BC. If you know the beers that Wa. was well known for, you know why.
No matter how I do it I end up with smears and streaks. I have tried Invisible Glass and windex. I have use cloth towels and paper towels and still get bad results!
Has to be a better way to do it. I know products I use inside plus the vehicle is still “gassing” from the factory causes this...
Hi. My 2016 MDX is easily the nicest and most expensive car I've had. I want to take good care of it. I tried searching the forums for cleaners and some posts are several years old so I would like to hear some recommendations on cleaning products, where to buy (Amazon, eBay, Griot's, etc)...
Hi. As I said in a prior post, this is the best and nicest car I've had and I want to get good products to take care of it. Where do people buy their cleaning products? Someone mentioned Autogeek and Detailed Image. Any other places? Griot's Garage? Or pick and choose what products you...

A clay cleansing bar may seem like a product suited to a late-night infomercial, but actually, clay cleansing is hailed by car-care professionals as a revolutionary tool for...
Having black car is almost second job to maintain. Though my dealership offered free car wash but it is not like I can go there every other week.
I want to know what is the best and quickest method to wash car. I want to wash my car in less amount of time. I would highly appreciate cleaning...
