I agree, California duster saves you from scratching . Less washes and gets the dust off before you put the cover on.
The duster comes with wax on it also. I have a black car, been using it for 3 years.

Good suggestion here. The amount of dust my 2010 SRT8 makes is unreal...2 weeks of daily driving = black backspacing and "tinted" rims, lol. I use a wheel brush and a microfiber mitt....just rinse the wheel with water, spay cleaner of your choice, (put the mitt on to protect your hand from sharp edges) and agitate with the wheel brush, rinse rim with water again, then wipe the entire rim with the (soapy) mitt to get anything you missed.

I can't really recommend any other mods just yet as I am also getting started. So far I've got a Predator on the car...will be installing Magnaflow catted mids and SLP Loudmouth II this week...then I'd like to do window tint, catch can, thermostat, and intake...and a custom CMR down the road.
