    Avoid car wash places were there are numerous cars lined up to be washed. This will avoid alot of scratches from the towels the guys are using. Alot of times workers will wipe your cars bottom then use the same towel to go across the top of car leaving those very fine scratch marks..

    I always try to go to a good hand wash place were they dry with the mirco fiber towels and replace towels for every new car being dried. Its worth the extra $$ spent.

    I went through the 'touchless' bay, not willing to risk my 19 inch rims in the drive through cloth wash. Mostly concerned about cleaning underneath due to the snow melter put on the roads. It really attacks the rubber seals.

    I do too. It is called my driveway. I never want anyone else to touch my car (at least the good one).

    I do have to remember to tell the Acura dealer not to run it through the wash machine though (pretty sure that is automated, but no idea if touchless).

    (pretty sure that is automated, but no idea if touchless).

    Here in the Northeast, it is important to clean off the underneath, especially with a somewhat older vehicle. Not easy to do that in your driveway.

    I always hand wash it, but the swirl marks seem to be unavoidable using the bucket and sponge method. I have taken my car to a car wash 4 times since I have owned it, just to get an undercarriage wash that I can't do myself. It has only snowed 3 times since 12/28/

    Does anyone know how to "reply", or is it now just "leave comment"?

    You can use the "quote" button right below the text of the post you are reading, next to the "flag." The standard quote give us what you see in this one. If the original post has a quote with it, the whole thing collapses and you have to copy the part you wish to quote.

    Or you can just type @imidazol97 and then type your new post. This works best if your response quote will be right below the original post that you're targeting for response. Otherwise the posts are separate and readers wonder which post the response is meant for.

    Now it says you said something that I actually said. This is not good. I would say lol, but...confused and dissapointed at this point. "reply" would solve a LOT of problems.

    I think somehow the process got mixed up.

    There's always the method of just copying text to be quoted, putting a ">" in front to indicate quote or making it italics or bold, and then typing response. We just need practice with the system now. And the "edit" time window is 4 hrs. for when I need to change what came out in the post.

    I think they put a lot of work into making something less efficient and more complicated. Or another way of saying it would be they broke something that didn't need to be fixed.

    I agree. This new format sucks.

    Well, they say "quote" is the new reply. Without post titles like in the old s/w there is no value in a straight reply button since nobody would know what you are replying to.

    I guess you are always supposed to include quoted text to provide context now.

    The font choice (Times) is poor and its size in the commenting box is very small and hard to read.

    Note my neighbors awesome parking job this afternoon. I made her come down and move it as I could not open the door. There were 80 spaces open...but she has to park within 8 inches of my car. This is why I have a security camera. Condo living at it's finest.

    Hey..if she didn't have passengers on that side consider yourself fortunate, cski.. JFTR tho..I sympathize with you having to endure that level of stupidity by even having to share a parking lot with her.. They walk and drive among us...:(

    I know you're a mid-sized fan , but ya know...a gullwinged MB, Lambo etc wudda solved that issue today.. :wink:

    Well, the perfect mid size for me, no holds barred, would be the Audi A6. Since I have 3 girls to put through school, I don't think I will be getting one anytime soon.

    I thought of this when I saw this headline: Woman beaten over way she parked car in Lake Mary.

    What I left out on the parking job was that she weighs 300 pounds, so if she has groceries, she drags them down the sides of her car and whatever car she is next to in order to do it in one trip up the stairs. NO ONE parks next to her....and she is clueless as to why.

    I was behind a Malibu this morning which had dual exhaust, but had a plain black panel covering the outlets. Why? Why would you bother with a dual system then cover it up? Two exhaust tips cost that much? Men like things like that..so once again GM misses the point.
