works amazing when it begins raining...water just falls off the glass in little droplets..don't even need to use the wipers

Which rain repellant?

I applied Aquapel a few months ago and holy hell, it really does work! Still going strong and above 30 mph, the droplets bead right off :D

Drove it 380 miles to Georgetown and back.

And then came home to find the driveway full and parked it on the street until I could play musical cars.

The Clubman S All4 is my wife's new ride to replace the '05 MCS. New roommate for the FR-S.

if you used this on the red stitching on the steering wheel, will it rub off?

Maybe I'm just stupid but I use the regular invisible glass cleaner and it leaves a slight haze even after vigorous buffing... is there a tiny bit of haze for you also?

Maybe, I am getting one of those steering wheel wraps made of alcantra that you have to sew on. It basically looks the same just all black. IDK about using the spay on the steering wheel.

Also, on another note.
I did more polishing. The door latches, and anything silver under the hood; now shiny! It's starting to look really nice. I think I'm going to paint a few things next.

Mine doesn't seem to. Only used it a couple times though

+1 on the request for which lip.


Also request a side pic if possible. I want to do something since my bumper looks like it was chewed on by a bear and I haven't liked most lips but that looks perfect!

Won't whatever chewed up your bumper rip off the lip?

Not likely. It is mostly from stones thrown up on the highway and plowing through slush and ice in the winter. The bumper has remained firmly in place and has no cracks or splits so doubt it will get ripped off. It just looks 30 years old is all.

Ahh I was imagining the bottom edge being torn up from hitting debris. Or being chewed on by a bear

Ice and snow can be nasty!
Block of wheel well ice frozen to the ground and then covered with light fluffy snow making it invisible. The noise will haunt name for life.

Yeah I dunno if 3m tape can handle that... Maybe a splitter would be better. You could probably make one for <$100
