Yeah...I love this color! Thanks on the wheels. I couldn't decide between the chrome or polished. Went with the polished....

Funny you should mention that. Actually, I took it off yesterday and left it off after I found a bunch of sand under it. And, believe it or not, the paint was chipped under where the bra had been.

I'll have to take another picture for my sig when I get a chance.

Do not use rubbing compound on your car; keep all the clearcoat you have (orange peel and all); when you get scratch(s) let the detailer remove them; go to a quality shop that details high end cars and uses a rotary buffer routinely. If you compound a small spot, examine it closely under strong sunlight, you will see very fine scratches; all the wax in the word isn't gonna remove this. It will appear that you are removing these scatches but you are just filling them in. If your car was black you would easily see what I am talking about.
