Re: My 5.0

Sharp I love black.

You mind if I ask how much you paid for it?

I meet this one guy at our local car show that paid five thousand under sticker for his 5.0 just wondering if anyone else was as luck or if he was BSin.

5 k under sticker sounds about right. It was optioned at 39,325 and I got around 36 with taxes.

Re: My 5.0

also if you have never owned a black car prepare lol haha, I would recommend not washing it that much without filtered water (tap water = water spots) or use a waterless method like I did with my black car... clay bar/compound (3m clear coat safe ONLY), and wax VERY often and buff (not cutting just gentle buffer speed with a clay bar like level of abrasion) every year as needed to keep swirl marks out owning a black car is a sad life cleaning wise haha... but those 10 minutes are less its clean is great!

You can make your own water filter system from lowes for like 50-100 bucks (I need to do this) to get all the crap out of your water that cause spots FYI.

It is my 1st black car. Last car was navy blue though.

Anyone use "freedom waterless car wash" before? Someone mentioned it to me one day.

I'll check out that water filter system idea. I think i have a couple of Lowes gift cards left over from X-mas.

Re: My 5.0

I use DWG International™ - Manufacturer of Dri Wash 'n Guard® and have for the past 12 years, love it. find what works for you and stick with it. I have never made my own filter system but you apparently use the filter for a fridge and somehow hook it up to a hose~

Re: My 5.0

Shew damn. The black is amazing but tough to keep clean. I waxed it with Turtle wax's "black box" 3 step waxing process and it did it good. It stays clean for about a half hour at a time.
