Love the Lemon interior... my wife has it in her 335 and it isn't bad to keep clean.

Thanks everyone! I was actually surprised how hard the Alpine White paint was. A bit difficult to correct (had to get aggressive in some spots) but that should help with keeping it swirl free since I am very careful with washing and drying.

Stupid question, but what are the "inside" lights for inside the light enclosure? I notice they come on when you turn the wheel. Is that all they're for? Or are they some sort of fog light that was disabled for US roads?

what'd you use on the wheels?! I have gloss black powdercoated wheels and I have a hard time keeping them shiny, even after washing them.

I use P21S if the wheels aren't that bad. If they're bad, then the Meguiars Wheel Brightner makes an appearance.

I do wash them on a weekly basis though. Even after one single drive around town, the wheels are showing evidence of brake dust. Horrible.

By the way: some wheels might require a clay bar treatment if they are in really poor shape.

You think those products would work on my powder coated black wheels?!

If you'd like to err on the safe side, then use P21S. I don't mind using Wheel Brightner on OEM wheels, but on powder coated wheels I would be careful.

Safest option is to give them a proper spraying of P21S and let the P21S really soak for a while. I'm talking an hour plus here.

Really? That long?? Won't it dry after an hour? Will this protect them and keep the shine for longer? Or would I need to use something else as well?

P21S is probably the safest wheel cleaner out there, although it's a bit pricey. I bought a gallon of a it a while ago and have hardly used any, but that's only because I always wash the wheels at least once a week, even if I don't wash the car.

No, it won't dry after an hour. Obviously don't do this in the direct sun. It won't protect them, nor will it keep them shining for longer.

For that, I personally like to use CG Jetseal 109. It's a pretty crap sealant for your paint, but it works a charm on wheels.

Sweet thanks! Gonna order it all today this is what I'm gonna order, what do you think? Good or is the brush and microfiber gloves (for the jetseal) overkill? I have the VMR V710s, and they are a pain to clean well with just a normal sponge because of all of the spokes, so I'm thinking it may be hard to apply the jetseal well too? That's why I'm thinking of just investing in the gloves n brush.
