I was in the same position--- two new cars and wanted simple and durable protection. Clay, sealant, wax twice a year. I use a fine Nanoskin sponge, Duragloss 601/105, and Collinite 845. But lots of good choices among similar products.

Just bought a nanoskin auto scrub. I won't go back to clay after using it. About $12 for the fine grade sponge. Used a spray bottle with car wash/water for lubricant. As far as the Collinite 845, the stuff is easy to apply, does not leave white resid

Kinda....wouldn't hurt....cheaper the just buy the blend though.... And a Dexos1 blend needs to be AT LEAST 45 percent synthetic to be a dexos blend. You'll find most dexos blends are at least half though...

I fail to see the problem. It was shipped via the ground service and goes through the normal channels, such as their sorting hubs. Did you expect FedEx to hand-deliver it directly from the company to your door?

In regards to my own Toyota, unless they made some changes to the OEM struts I wouldn't (and didn't) buy another set. It's a known issue that they develop leaks a lot sooner than you expect of an acceptable quality strut.
