I have the spray on. Seems to last for a good week, depends on if it rains or gets really dirty.

as far aws tire shine it depends on your tire and the spray. ive got meguiars hot shine right now cause it was on sale. ive been bouncing around some, havent really found a favorite yet. but on tires with lots on little groves on the sidewall itll last longer. my tires are perfect for this. laurens cheap bridgestone sams club tires are smooth though so they dont hold a shine very well. one word of advice though. DO NOT USE WHERE YOU WILL BE WALKING OFTEN you get that **** on the floor by accident and its more slippery than snot for a week. i swear its worse than ice. and it gets on your shoes cause its made to soak into rubber and ur sliding around like an idiot for an hour lol.


oh. and i polished out me and the gf'* cars today. they look really nice. pics will be in the gmf daily chat thread

What you really don't want to do is use armorall on a rag to do everything. My dad did that when I was younger. He did his van, my van, my moms car, as well as his motorcycle and mine. Then the rag ended up in the wash and my mom used it the next morning to clean the kitchen floor. Man, the floor was shinny. But everyone in the house ended up getting a real close look at it because we all wiped out.

Did the 500 mile oil change on SSExi. Oil was still very clean, but wanted to change the filter as well.

I wish 500 miles took me that long to reach! I put a bare minimum of 400 on my DD every week.
