    Waxed my 08 WRX

    Gotta love a good wash and wax. I just bought this car "new" (1300 miles) last week. It was clean, but not clean enough. I took this problem into my own hands today--here are the results!

    Get a clear bra for the front. Best thing since sliced bread. And maybe the wheel. Looks nice.

    Ya, I was thinking about that. They are really expensive though. I suppose it is worth it when you think about what you're saving...

    I wouldn't recommend the clear bra on a darker vehicle, like black, because you will see every little scratch in the bra and they scratch very easily. From my experience even a gentle wipe of a microfiber cloth leaves marks, and also the installation leaves visible marks from being squeegeed on. Again this is only from my own personal experience, installed by a professional at a dealership mind you.

    That was your 1st mistake...... The dealer did it. Take it to a tinting place that WILL warranty it.

    Wasn't my car, I worked for the dealership and the clear bra package was sold with new cars and had a full warranty. Looks great on a silver or white but on black or dark blue... blah. You can see every little scratch.
