A brand new car has tons of impurities in the paint. It's best to get it off ASAP and put a nice protective layer on it.

If you ever have the chance, wash and claybar a brand new car. You'll be shocked at the amount of crap the clay picks up.

2nd. PO couldn't drive in a straight line. Marks on rear bumper from backing into a yellow pole. Deep scratches on passenger corner on same bumper too. They did no preventative maintenance so they did oil and tire changes. So she's in the shop now

2nd owner. First owner seriously kept her immaculate. 111k and I have yet to have any issues with it. Dealer make her "brand new" again after a major hookup before I hit 50k. She's been perfect ever since.

technically the 3rd, but feels more like the 2nd. The 1st owner only owned it for less than a year.

The cars are filthy from the shipping process. That very first clay bar left picked up a TON of impurities. Since then, a once a year clay bar barely picks up anything.

My wife asked if something were to happen to her, would I remarry. I said yeah.

She asked if the new woman would live in this home. I said yeah.

She asked if the new woman would use her Bimmer. I said yeah.

She asked if the new woman would use her golf clubs. I said Nope, she's left handed.

She hasn't spoken to me since.
