    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Before and After (doesn't matter which one is which SINCE THEY'RE THE SAME) Forget about the swirl marks for a second and notice the gunk. Those nasty splotches are a result of letting a healthy layer of dust get sprinkler-systemed. The sprinklers here are pretty much reclaimed water (thanks...

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I've never used clay bars. Will I need to use a clay bar before applying Rejex to my new CTS when it arrives or can I just wash with Dawn and use Rejex? If I need to use a clay bar-which one is recommended and how does one use it? Thanks!
