Unhappy



Anyone ever use the Zymol clay bar for washing and waxing their 5 series? I heard from a friend that it is much better than using McGuire products and lasts longer.

Any thoughts or suggestions about protecting the paint while making the 5 series awesome-looking?

I just used a mothers claybar yesterday.... Claybars are not ment to replace washing and waxing, they are used just for removing pollutants and oxidants from your paint... http://www.autopia-carcare.com/autopia/inf-clay.html Hope that helps...

Hi dubumb,
Thanks for the tip and website. It was pretty helpful. Do you have an experience with getting out buffing swirls on the paint? They are not deep, but at the right angle and lighting, you can see some swirls on the trunk.

Since i fucked up my mother's van pretty good, it also had these light scratches... I used meguiars SCRATCH X to get a lot of the light scratches out, It sez you can use it on ur whole car to get the swirls out, but i just tried it on fine scratches, i recommend it.. Good luck

Ok Pinhead-

Try the claybar on your winshield too and it will pull all the grit off of it and make your wipers run over the glass better.

After you are done with that, take your used gritty clay bar and shove it up DUBUMB"S ass
