Hi all,

I just picked up my brand-new "Pre-owned" 2000 BMW 328Ci yesterday - and I am thrilled! Never owned a bimmer before - but wanted one since high-school! I guess I'm a bimmer virgin and need a lot of advice

Its in immaculate condition - and I want to keep it that way for a long time to come. I was thinking rust proofing it - Krown Rust - they spray an oil type spray into the cavities of the car - is this worth it? Its pretty cheap, about $99. Secondly, I was wondering what you guys felt about those permashine type treatments - I just don't have enough time (my work hours are way too long to afford this baby!) plus I'm just too lazy in my little bit of time off to wax the car constantly. I don't have a garage - so it sits outside and there are lots of trees - so I am concerned about the occassional bird droppings - I figure any layer on top of the paint & clear coat will help?! right? Any suggestions (especially in the Toronto area).

Thanks any suggestions will help.
Wm

Never heard bout any permashine products myself but what i would do is get a bottle of poorboys waterless wash. keep that a a bottle of quick detail spray in the car. when the birds bomb it. use the waterless wash on it and then quick detail spray. i do that before i take her out anywhere and she always looks like she came outta the car wash. even when i haven't waxed her.

Thank you for the reply, what is poorboy waterless wash? and where can I get it? What would you recommend me wiping it up with?

It is a cleaner that you spray on and wipe off. it will remove the normal dust and crud you might get on your bimmer from daily driving. it also acts slightly like a detail spray. you can buy it here:

I use a microfiber towel to wipe it up as they will remove dirt and not drag it along the paint scratching it. The nice thing about the poorboy products is that you can use them in the sun. :-) i use the meguiars quick detail spray and the quick wax spray as well. They are quick easy and make your bimmer look like she/he just got a wax.
