    It's just Meguiars Gold Class hand waxed. I could actually use a treatment of scratch/swirl remover but have been too lazy.

    Dont bother with the scratch/swirl remover. It didnt do anything for my black V. Under my flourescent garage lights, the car looks like it was buffed with a steel wool pad.

    I guess it would possibly have worked somewhat if I had a power buffer instead of my weak arms.

    I about had to pick my jaw up off the ground when I saw it. And heck, I didn't have someone to help I had to press the button and get out there quick to see what was going on. Am I right in that it looks like it blasts some spray first and then blasts some air a couple of seconds later? It's like a frickin' transformer

    Again, sorry if it's old hat to everyone else - but it just made me grin a mile wide. Big kudos to whoever got the bean counters at corporate to let them do it!!

    Ever day I find a new reason to love my V...I've started to think of her as my Christine!
    Okay....I read about headlight washers when I bought the V...but I could not find them and figured it must have been an option. Holy CRAP that is really cool!! Had to wake up the wife and take her out to the garage to check it out!! That is awesome....yes it is weird to get worked up over clean headlights but that is STEALTH!

    Isn't it a Euro law that xenons must have washers (and auto leveling, hence the Nivos?)?

    Once is a enough for the headlight washers; after that they are a PITA.

    Remember to drive the V once around the block after a wash and before photos. Rusty rotor syndrome is contagious.

    500 for a new set of FG2s is a downright steal. That's less than half the cost of a new set at reduced price.

    FG2 is worth every penny. I have never driven an FE4, but I am convinced the FG2 is why I have no complaints about wheelhop. Not to mention the incredible responsiveness.
