Wash / dry

I just got my 04 and its so beautiful and wana keep the paint nice and crisp the way it is .. What would be best to wash with as pertaining to the soap and sponge or water only ..?... And the drying with ... Scared to use just a towel or shammy because of scratching ... Any suggestions ... It's also my daily driver so consider that as well

When washing use a good soap that foams nice like meguiars gold class...for in between washes a microfiber and bottle of meguiars ultimate detailer does the trick. For drying i only use lamb skin...you can buy a good size lamb skin drying cloth at any autoparts for under $20. Btw maybe consider doing a claybar and sealer wax since you just got it. Theres a lot of debris you cant see in the paint thatll cause swirk marks when you wash. Best get it out now...check youtube for vids on how to claybar...a kit is around $20 in most cases

first off i'd remove the dealer emblem...use some fishing wire to cut through the tape holding it on and then some goo gone to get the left overs off...besides that just a good wash will get it back to a good shine...think about waxing it too

Just my two cents...but I usually dry using a leaf blower. No touch drying and all water blown from all crevices.
