Which ceramic coat did you go with? It's on my To-Do list as the next thing. The paint already has some crap in it from the highway drive from the dealer.

I may have lied. I'm not sure its ceramic, super hydrophobic with its main component being silica.

Anyway CQuartz stuff is what I used. THis little bottle was more than enough for my 4 wheels.

Cleaned with dish soap
cleaned with isopropyl alcohol
Coat per instructions (don't let it sit to long!)

I bought it in 2016 and haven't touched them since other than normal washing.

Wow, since 2016? I'm going to buy that now. Thank you Did you take the wheels off the car and do the whole wheel or just the outside?

DSC emailed me back - they'll have a new V3 controller in the mail tomorrow.

Not sure this car needs anything at all beyond paint protection - but this should be a nice addition.

The wheels were off and I did the whole thing just because. I did them right after I took them out of the box so I knew they weren't dirty in anyway.

Ahh ok. I'll have to really scrub mine then and take them off the car.

DSC Sport controller - no update...waiting on shipment. The label was created, but nothing else.

Changed engine oil at 570 miles. Changing the eLSD dif fluid out this Saturday. Having the factory alignment checked and then set to street spec (-1 all around) to ensure tire life.

Chevrolet Rewards gifted me 20,000 points for buying the new car. I redeemed them for some ZL1 floor and trunk mats and Adams wheel cleaner.

1,000 more miles and one more Engine/Dif fluid change at 1,500 miles then the car is broken in per factory spec. I may be ready for an autocross or event by late September? I want to get new numbers/letters in a different color combo.
