Nice.

Monsoon season is coming up and it'll rain quite a bit here over in Korea.

It rained for about 5 minutes yesterday...turned my car brown. There's so much pollen and Yellow Sand (sand and metal particles from China) in the air that's it's a challenge to keep your car clean for more than a few days.

Does the SS show dirt well?

thats 16 days of car washes...lol

it will be ok, just when it gets clear for a day, plan on doing a clay, light polish, and either a sealant like BFWD or menzerna powerlock, or a coating like opti-coat (better). Set it off correctly if it already hasnt been done! If it has, then I wouldnt worry too much.

I had my car washed and waxed this past weekend then on my way back to the garage there was a flash storm (complete downpour for about 5 minutes). Needless to say my JB M3 is dirty again. Wasn't supposed to rain either. Fun!

It's a fact.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asian_Dust

Not really blaming China...just saying that it originates from there. I've been to Beijing once before and I remember all the cars were covered in the same dust/sand that I see here in Korea, except in heavier concentrations.

Korea has pollution, sure, but not so bad that it leaves a film over the cars.
