If you use it to try and CLEAN the car, which means you push down with force, go in circles over the same area for an extended period of time, etc, then of course you have turned it into a hand sander. LOL
    I must confess, my duster was brand X that my son gave me as a birthday present. It was really coarse and would scratch the paint even in a straight up and down motion. I used it once or twice on a black car just to satisfy my son. Some of my car club members use California Dusters and they are always filthy dirty -- but they swear by them.

    Ya, off brands aren't the same. And I'm not sure why, but the dirtier the thing gets, the better it picks up dirt. That's their slogan actually "The dirtier it gets, the better it works". Unlike most slogans, it's actually true!

    The effective range on the front and rear parking sensors is so short. On my BMWs they have much more range and a really intuitive display. I find myself not using them: I get chicken way before they report an obstacle and get out of my car and visually inspect. The backup camera image is redundant with the parking sensors - would have appreciated top-down view like on my X5.

    I had this problem before and discovered in the navigation settings that you can change projected speed on surface streets and highways. Mine was set very slow and time to destination was way off. Look for those settings and that should help.

    HAHA! That's a good one. It's not really that bad. The black just looks sooooo good when it is clean, I think it forces you to clean it more often. Right now my black CT is filthy dirty thanks to the rain we had earlier this week.

    Same thing is said about owning a boat.

    Thanks midcow3 for the tip on blind spots. Ironically,just before taking the family out today I adjusted my side mirrors to see more of the approaching traffic. It does take a little getting used to but beats the hell out of being squished.
