Thanks guys! I have a can of slime in my wife's MPV. Need to pick up another along with a plug kit to stick in the ST.

I can speak on the cp-e, it is amazing, I swear it actually made my vibes LESS than with just the upper, I've driven a car with a boomba......no don't do it
Do you have the Stage 1 or 2 cp-e? I won't be racing my ST and was told the Stage 2 was meant for harder driving.

I have the stage 2, after asking around I went with it because of the bushing setup when compared to other designs

You race though, don't you? I've heard the cp-e RMM is the best around, but I'm debating whether or not its worth the extra $70 compared to the others for my driving situation. Thanks for your input Hemi.

Sorry to crosspost, but didn't get any responses when I posted this as a separate thread in the detailing section. Maybe it was a noob question...

What do you guys do to keep the cloth panel of the door clean. The one marked with the yellow marker in the photo below.... My kids keep pushing the door open using this panel and I am worried it is going to get smudged pretty soon. Not sure I should any of the interior cleaners meant for vinyl/plastic on this panel.

I haven't cleaned that yet. I'd guess car upholstery cleaner would work.

Any good recommendations? I haven't really researched these.

I haven't had to clean it yet. I've just vacuumed it with the brush attachment. I'll have to pay more attention next time as I have kids sitting in the back a lot. Right now they're distracted by all the "pockets" in the back.

OK detailing gurus, here's the situation. You've washed and waxed your car and everything is looking fantastic. A couple of days later, there's a slight layer of dust on the car. Maybe it drizzled and the dust stuck to the droplets. Maybe the wheels kicked up just enough dust off the road to make the fenders a bit grimy. Not enough to require a full wash but the fact that is there is enough to require action. What to do? Wiping the dust off dry is presumably a bad idea because of the risk of scratches? Is using an instant detailer + MF towel ok? Or does not require a full hose rinse to be perfectly safe? I accept that there will be an exponential decay in the level of pristine-ness from the day it was detailed, but as a condo dweller, I don't have the luxury of dragging out the hose daily and hosing her down either.

Advice? Is there a quick detailing routine you guys do every day to keep the car in top shape between full washes/details?

oh yeah! perfect solution I use it ALL the time it is a product called eco shine by shine supply, get a bottle (it dilutes so the price you see is actually quite good) grab a GOOD waffle towel or 4 and use eco wash, watch insanepaint's youtube channel for instruction.
after you're done wipe with instant detailer like normal and it will look as good as the day you detailed
