    If their like the synthetic ones Ive tried before then they suck. They work really good on the plastic part of my X but it tended to grab the paint. Go with a real chammy.

    well, i got something very similar at walmart. It works just as good. i use it for my truck. only problem is, i have to keep wringing it out to get the water out to dry the truck. but my off brand shamwow does very good. it dries the truck rather fast. No water spots either.
