Disclaimer: My car is not as fresh or clean as some other cars. When I bought it there was some paint damage. I've tried to take good care of it, but some parts still suck. Especially the damage from accidents which weren't my fault, which I didn't claim because insurance is in my dads name. I love driving my car, no matter what damage it may have in certain areas. So, here I present you with my no-name 1997 Dodge Intrepid ES, with 3x accident damage and its first hardcore wash, wax, etc.
Products I used:
Meguire's car wash
Turtle Hard Shell wax
Eagle 1 Glass Cleaner (used to clean wheels)
Westley's Tire Bleche
Eagle 1 Tire Shine
3x Terry towels to wash, clean wheels
5x microfiber towels to wax, buff
2x large bath towels to dry
Overall, I like the rain-x best. Its just so cool to see the water run down after its applied. Note to self: spraying water on freshly waxed car is not good, causes spots.
I love how the tires look. I applied the Bleche Wite once, let dry, applied again, and then put the tire shine on. I couldn't be more happy with the way they look. The wheel almost looks white in this picture.
I guess I'll make this into a signature thread as well, since I don't have one.

Overall, my car is nothing that sticks out. I've seen much better on this site. I was just bored and wanted to learn how to wax / rain x / etc, so washed my car. I take pride in driving it and don't let anyone make fun of her (e.g. "haha, that intrepid is slow, my 3.1 grand prix can kick the shit out of it, plus my GP has a playstation in the trunk and has lcd screens word bling bling holla omg lol!11!1111!1!!!!111!"). Shes got nearly 166,000 miles right now, and at a sixth of a million miles I'm questioning whether I want to spend the money to do all, or even some, of what is in "future". I will probably save up for a 2nd gen or a completely different car. But for now, the Intrepid rawks and it stays.
