Had to rinse her off after just washing it like not even two days ago. My neighbor has this POS tree that stains my car with some orange stuff. My paint sucks as it is Then once fall comes along, it starts dropping pecans and shit. I can see tiny dents in my roof and trunk from last year.

Donít want to be the tool with the car cover and Iíve accepted the fact that the paint will never be perfect so Iíll just touch up and detail once and be done with it I guess. Still...sucks

sounds like me. I have these obnoxious pink trees and bushes in my yard. They look nice when they bloom but they spit sap like crazy. There are times I wash it almost every day to get the sap off, but I've almost given up. If moving wasn't such a pain in the ass I would.

I did some track day prep last weekend. Oil change, brake fluid flush to DOT 4, clutch fluid flush, installed camber bolts, and practiced taking the pads and rotors on/off. It's a bit too early to put the track pads on, so I just went through the motions to get familiar with it.
I had to break the rotors loose using the two M8 bolt method. That method ended up being a lot easier than I expected.

Is there really nowhere to park except under your neighborís tree? Why would using a car cover make you a tool and why do you care even if somebody thought that?

i had a car cover for a little while for a different car for a similar reason. i stopped using it because it was a pain to be installing/removing. and after trying to take the cover off after an ice storm, i/it put some massive scratches in the hood.

a few commentors on jalopnik here and there also say they've had issues with curious george types removing half the covers to see what's underneath, and not putting it back.

seriously, consider having the car ceramic coated. it'll last up to a year just by itself, and adding a layer of carnuba wax on top of that as a sacrificial layer every couple months, and it should almost totally eliminate the problems you're having, besides the dents of course.

Yeah I bet it would be a pain to put on and remove. Especially if Iím ever running late. Plus I like looking outside and seeing her lol Iíve heard about some of them leaving scratches too.

Seriously? Man Iíve really got to do it. Once a year is not too bad. Asked on here for a shop that would do it, but no luck. Not too worried about the dents. Theyíre more like little pits that you can only see at certain angles. Iíd really like to start throwing some mods on it, but I really want a touch up and ceramic coat first. Thanks for the info

Took my BRZ in for an oil change, recall for back up camera/Nav system and to get that annoying clunk sound fixed. (metal bang sound from fire wall, under hood area)
Service Tech: Why'd you replace the springs?
Me: I didn't!
Service Tech: So you bought it used?
Me: NO! That's the way it comes, FROM THE FACTORY!
Service Tech: It does?
Me: Yes.
Service Tech: Oh... Well they made a lot of noise when I raised the car up and then again when I brought it back down.
Me: Did you fix that clunk sound under the hood?
Service Tech: Ya I adjusted the hood.
Drove the car around the block and it's still there so it's booked in again for a week this Monday.
