Hey all,

Great forums! I read through and picked up some Maguirs (sp?) cleaning products for my 92 325is and man doe she look good today =)

I'm wondering what products you use on the black trim pieces around the car. Also, my wife drives our 2000 323i wagon and is there anything to use on the roof rack? Would Armor All work on these?

Thanks,

-- Lax

PS: Here's a little shot of my clean rims (hrmm, tires could use more Armor all =)

Gave her another bath today. Used more Armor All this time on the tires =)

It got too dark to take pics, but if it the wash survives the night outside, I'll take some more pics.

I'll definitely try out the products for the black trim. Gonna see if I can find it locally tomorrow.

Thanks for the props! I married into this car, and it's finally "mine" now that I got the wife a 2000 323i wagon. The body is straight, save for one small dent in the front grill from some thoughtless parallel parker a while back. Grrr.

Next up are clear corners, tint, a short-shift kit, and hopefully some rims this year.

Here's another fun pic for the time being:
