Optimum No Rinse

Hello,

Have any M5 owners used Optimum No Rinse? If so, what are your impressions? I watched a few videos and it looked effective and easy. I'm looking for a convenient wash solution to the long and grimy New York winter.

Thanks

Hey Phil. I am very happy with the work you do and with the products I picked up. The car is very reflective and manages to stay pretty clean. For anyone looking for a quality detailer don't hesitate to contact detailers domain. Just for reference I had a new car prep with Opticoat. Will be returning for clear wrap.

Thanks a lot for the positive feedback, Phil. If you're close to Art, you're close to me - I'm in NYC as well. The clear film installation on the Audi looks like impeccable work. Are you in Northern NJ?

He is located in Norwood, NJ. It's off exit 2 on the palisades pkwy. Definitely worth any trip in the tristate area.

Phil - I am having my M5 done with Wolf's Hard Body. I am also doing Xpel Ultimate on the entire front clip. Xpel says you should not use products with naptha or kerosene on Xpel because it yellows the film.

Would like your advice on these 2 questions?

1) Will the Xpel adhere properly with the bumper hood and fenders coated in Hard Body or should I not hardbody these areas?

2) If answer to one is no, then how do I gloss the Xpel to match the gloss on the rest of the car? Would Wolf's body wrap work on the Xpel film?

Your installer will strip off any type of 'wax' product wherever the Xpel is being installed so don't waste your time having the front clip done. BTW I had the front clip done on my car and it looks great.

Hard Body is a coating. It won't come off with a wax removing cleaner. To remove it you have to polish it off.
