Get tempo washed more often. i cant stare straight at it for a prolonged period of time because it is so white.

btw, anybody know how to work those do it yourself carwashes? everytime i try to use one, it leaves a black film on the car in places there was no black film. prolly just stick to drivethru from now on, but not too often, because the driver side doors leak stupid bad

I don't have a problem with my do-it-yourself. Just make sure the drive thru wash you use cleans the brushes regularly and that the brushes are a soft cloth and not rubber/plastic. I went through a rubber/plastic drive thru and they just scratched the dirt into my car and left a bunch of streaks. I had to go home and clay bar/wax to fix it.

Edit: I just wash at home with filtered water. Unfiltered leaves bad hard water stains, which leads to annoying water spots.

Note to self...

dont do drive thru again.

kept shorting out the engine light, so i kept thinking the car had low oil pressure. coasted it home to parents place, and parked it under the tree. then it rained. then the bird poo came.

but MAN, is that thing WHITE

even took the dorky metro wheel covers off and put the chrome rings back on. its been a while since it was clean
