He said the car was not dirty, just dusty, so not really sure how much different it would have looked with a good rinse with his power washer.

i know, but i watched a few other videos on dirtier cars and it looked like it worked well. I just picked that one because it was a supra. I love those cars.

dont see the point, rinse the car well, then wash like normal.

Im sure the foam will lift some of the grit off the car prior to washing, but dont think Id bother on any color but black.

His dirty car looks like mine after sitting overnight after a wash and wax... doesn't really look like it does anything special to me.

My exact thoughts. I don't see any difference between that and a good rinse. Confused

With all that said, I did get an Armor All car washer (forget the exact name) as a gift and I do use it.

It attaches to your hose. You rinse the car, turn a knob, and then soapy water sprays out. You soak the car in soapy water and then use a regular sponge on it. Then turn the knob back to just water, then finally turn the knob again for a spot free rinse. But, you still need to ultimately dry the car. It saves a little time and eliminates the need for a bucket. I use it, but likely would not have spent the money on it myself. So it works, but I don't recommend going out and buying one. A bucket, hose, and a sponge are not terribly hard or confusing to use. LOL,

The surfboard spoiler seems to have an affinity for soap too. I feel like it takes more work to get the remaining soap out from under the spoiler than it does to do the rest of the car.

I don't have the surfboard anymore and I still have that issue. I knew I should have sealed this new spoiler all the way around!!!

I don't like those because you end up spreading dirty soap over the car,.. in turn scratching it as you wash it. Kind of like at a car wash. Who knows what the person before you used the brush for. Laughing

Nope. After I wash my cars I dry them off really quick, then do a good 65mph to get the water out of those little crevices, and then I dry her off real good again.

I condensed my procedure - you are correct. I still do one section at a time and wash the sponge with clean water in between. Just no bucket needed. And the soapy water gets sprayed into crevices. Nice, but not worth buying. Good thing to use if you get it as a gift though.
