For the exterior, I recommend one capful of any mild car wash soap in a bucket of water for the exterior. You don't want to use any thing strong or any more than neccesary or you will remove the wax. Also, recommend zymol applied by hand (finger-tips), no sponge or other applicator. It may be expensive, but in 12 years with a 325 and 4 with a 525, I have used less than two containers of zymol "carbon".

For the interior, don't use vinylx or plastizer on a regular basis. I have seen examples in which it really did more harm than good. In one instance, it seemed to dissolve a set of rubber (vinyl?) floor mats. Literally, rubber stains came off on the soles of my shoes. Also, it vaporizes and coats the windows.

: I was wondering what car wash product do you guys use? For the interior, can you use vinylex for the wood trim?? Thanks for any help.
