New Camera and Clean X5

I purchased a new camera from a forum member on Autopia. really good deal and really good camera. Its a Canon Power Shot S2iS. I was using a polarizing filter in the shots. The car got a quick wash and QD since it still looking good from its Menzerna and Duragloss detail...

Very nice. Black always looks nice when it's clean and shiny.

You can get a polarizing filter for a Power Shot?

For the S2iS you can. You just have to buy the lense adapter. Thankfully when I bought the camera, the sender sent it with the camera.

Fine look X and very interesting look with the polarizer; I especially
like that interior shot with the exc depth of feel and "different"
look. Good stuff!

Ajogu, not speaking for joyride, but it looks like a transmitter module we use here in many of the states: called "EZPass", which is a subscription to a multi-state transportation authority.

We use that windshield mounted gizmo to travel through the numerous toll booths on many of the toll roads. It provides for "driving through" the toll, as opposed to stopping and paying; our tolls are noted electronically and deleted from an account.

Yep. Just like motordavid said, its a module used to drive through tolls instead of stopping and paying. Of course here in FL we call in Sunpass, not E-Z Pass. lol

Joy.

I literally have dozens of tire dressings. Botique, professional grade, and OTC. The one currently on the tire is Meguiars Hot Shine Spray (OTC). I like the look, I do not like the sling. Only way to avoid the sling is to buff the tire after application, but of course this loses a lot of the shine. The tire was not buffed for picture purposes. I later buffed the tire completely with a terry towel.
