I feel like dirt or water if it rains doesn't shed off the camera lens and 8/10 times I can't use the camera at all when backing up. Luckily the side-mirrors tilt down, which helps a ton, but I...

    Transfer stain on ultra white perforated seats

    Ironically, I laid out a clean black trash bag on my back seat to protect the seat from another bag I had in the car that had garbage in it. Unfortunately, the black bag seems to have left a transfer stain (black / bluish) on my back seat!! I tried mild soap and water and that did absolutely...
