Though I would share a detailing tip......

When washing your car, and rinsing it, you are left with all that water that beads up, assuming you have a nice wax on the car. To aid in getting the water off easier, try this: Take the nozzel off of you hose, then rinse you car, starting from the roof down. Without the nozzel, the water will flow freely over the surface, and due to the surface tension of the water, most of it will sheet off the car, leaving you with much less water to towel off. I have been doing this for about a year now, and it works really well, you will be surprised how much water will sheet off. It also helps to rinse your car on a downslope area, so the water will have gravity to pull it off even better.

I used to use this exact same method on my black s-10, but i don't really see the need cuz silver doesn't show water really at all, or much else for that matter..
