  1. Maintenance & Detailing
    Hello, Just recently purchased a pre-owned 2015 honda accord ex-l coupe. After a couple weeks of driving, I noticed there started to be a white build up of some white substance on 2/4 of my rims. The substance seems to be raised, so I am hoping it wasn't some sort of acid eating away at the...
  2. Performance
    Cleaned my K&N Filter with the recharger kit (99-5000) Instructions were straight forward. Tried not put on too much oil after the cleaning, so I may have to go back and touch up some of the darker spots. Car sounded like it breathed better after I put it back on but who knows. Just happy to see...
  3. Maintenance & Detailing
    Will Meguiar's Gold Class soap for washing my car and then following up with Griot's Spray-on wax be ok? Or do I have to stick to one line of product? I'm interested in knowing what others are using for their washes? Two-bucket system anyone?
  4. The 7th Generation
    My 2005 Honda Accord 4-cyl has been having idle issues at 120K miles. When I'm at a stop, the revs are bouncing up and down, sometimes so low that it stalls. Here is a video... in the middle I held the revs steady at 1500 rpm and there is no bouncing: After looking around on the forums, I'm...

    I wanted to exhibit the results I have had with some interior cleaning products I picked up a few weeks ago. The first two pictures (tan leather) are of my front drivers seat. I used Meguiars Rich Leather Aloe Cleaner. This is where I snapped the picture. Afterwards I used the Leather Master...
  10. Maintenance & Detailing
    Searched multiple pages on this forum but couldn't find the answer. I have a OEM trunk tray for my 04 sedan, discolored in sections. Anything that can remove these light stains and restore the black tray to new appearance? Tried leaving Fantastic spray cleaner on the surfaces for a minute then...
  11. Maintenance & Detailing
    I always wash my own car, are there any good ideas or products that would help in making it easy to keep the windows streak free from the inside and out? Also, I am finding that cleaning the inside of the windows especially the back one, really hard. Doesn't everyone hate that film or haze...
