Here's what I found this morning while doing a quick wash to get rid of bird droppings.

Passenger rear

and yeah I know the wheels are dirty, they were clean(ish) 14 miles ago :rolleyes:
Haha don’t even stress the dirty wheels. I think any of us that truly drive these cars know that wheel isn’t staying clean for more than half a day.

I put a coat of Liquid Glass on my rims/brakes and it helps a little. Also, I have found that using a little detail polish on a cloth when wiping down the rims helps. Thankfully, our stock rims are very easy to clean. Brembo pads in general expel a lot of dust, it is frustrating as every vehicle I've owned with Brembos are impossible to keep clean even after a brief drive.

Any nicks in the base wheels or center caps can be touched up with a paint pen. As for dirty wheels, get them clean and then apply a few coats of Adams wheel ceramic coating. They will be much easier to clean.

I am scheduling mine to go in for XPEL in the next week or so, until then it is difficult to drive "away" from everyone. I will feel much better though, I wish it is not so expensive however, it is absolutely worth every penny. I am lucky that my car is white so, even if I get something between now and when I take it, I can touch it up easily. If I went with a dark color, I probably would have driven the car straight to the shop. I did that with my Z06 and it was flawless when I sold it. (lucky new owner!)

I just got mine back from having Xpel installed over the entire front end (hood, bumpers, fenders, mirrors) as well as complete Ceramic Coating of the entire car including wheels and calipers to try to keep the brake dust from pitting the wheels. It was costly but damn she looks perdy!

I’m having my ‘07 ceramic coated and PPF to the front clip. I will have photos next week of before and after.

Meh, mine has some front end road rash and that makes it way less stressful to drive. Bothers me and then it doesn't. No one cares when you trade it in anyway.

Got my car back Wednesday and took it to a show on Saturday. Overall I’m very pleased with both the PPF and the ceramic coating. Shop that did the work said it was challenging due to the hood profile and no availability of cad plotter cuts for this year’s model. He took 20% of his quote for me. I had some road grime from driving home on wet asphalt and it all wiped right off. PPF is on hood, bumper and front fenders.

XPEL, I just had my front done, and will eventually have the entire car completed. It is expensive but well worth it.
Also, I found this great wing place while I waited, and they were as good as they look!

Nice! I am very Partial to Rapid Red at the moment, considering trading up my 07;
