Pair that with the residue from the snow and salt, and our rides aren't looking too hot, and there's no good way to clean them until it warms up. Dreaming of warmer weather, I'm always thinking about shining up the cars, and there's always that goal of making them as "new car" fresh as possible. With that in mind, the folks at Meguiar's (check out their full product line on Amazon) have sent over a list of six helpful tips that can aid in keeping your new car looking and feeling like new longer, but are also great for freshening up an older ride as well.
