New Car, First Detail Effort

Newbie to the Forum and the 3 series, previously a Z4 owner... Loving the step up in quality and comfort... 325d M Sport Coupe with all the trimmings.

Wash and dry (standard 2 bucket method and micro fibre mit)
Clay bar (Meguires)
Turtle Wax Black Box (first use) with the following stages;

Pre-Wax Clearner - apply with cloth, dry to a haze and then buff with detailer spray
Carnuaba wax compound from Black Box applied with sponge applicator (by hand very tiring) dry to a haze and then buff with detailer spray (very easy!!)

thats about it! great result really happy with it. It does help that it has just come out of the dealership and the paint work is practically perfect (Sytner, High Wycombe, UK) let me know what you guys think!

Loving my new Toy, with all the trimmings

325d M Sport, Saphire Black, Light Grey Leather, Professional Multimedia
