Yeah,

Once I get back on track in the job area. I am gonna start a little fund to save for a real good paint job. So when my car becomes one big paint chip on wheels I'll have some cash to bring back the red dash.

RainX makes a pretty good wax. you wash your car, then spray it on... I've used it a few times and its been great.

I did my landlords mini for him and it came out awesome, no swirls whatsoever!!!

As for the rims, I haven't used the Turtle Wax chrome cleaner- is it a spray? I use Westleys Bleeche White (or however they spell it- I know it is not Bleach lol) on the wheels and it cleans them really well too.
Joe
It is not a spray. It is in a small white bottle.

I used to have a set of 17" ADR Kasais in "black chrome", I inquired about them but apparently (according to ADR) it was a limited production color, so I am sol with that option lol..
Joe

edit- I only included the console pic because I have seen various questions here and there about what the 05 console looked like.
I was torn between the sedan vs the wagon. I love the way the sedan looks with the premium package.

Considering the wagon was a little cheaper, I decided to use the money I saved for a few mods I wanted. Me likes short throw shifter, ugh ugh.

The premium package comes with a wing and moon roof and a few other things like heated mirrors / seats (I think). I am not a big fan of huge wings on the trunk, but the WRX with out the subtle wing looks naked to me.
