In Reply to: Funny Observation posted by Robert on September 23, 1998 at 11:36:17:

The Boston green car had mud on the quarter panels that he was cleaning off as a demo. I asked if this would scratch the finish, and he invited me to feel the towel he was using to clean the car. The "dirt" appeared to be a coating of fine clay, so I couldn't feel any abrasive material, but I quarantee you it will scratch the finish. I would not use this product to clean my car, but would probably use it as a "quick wax" as others have said. However, it is quite expensive, so I didn't buy any.

: I don't intend this statement to reflect on the product, I just wanted to share a humorous observation.

: The salesman seemed really impressed with his product. They had a beautiful and clean boston green Z3 to demo the product, which seemed to work well but he was cleaning a clean car. As things were winding down on Saturday I was getting a strut brace installed right next to his booth/tent and got to watch the salesman pack everything up and put it in his car......

: Now you would expect to see a beautifully maintained car, but the salesman drove up this horribly dirty, unkept, paint fading, POS car (think it was a ford taurus). I almost asked him to stop and demo his product on his car (if it worked I might have bought some), but I decided to just let the moment pass with a giggle.
