Just detailed my 335xi

So first, I want to say thanks to George and everyone on this forum for all the helpful info on detailing. So here is what I did and the results below (sorry for the crappy weather).

1) Washed using meguiars gold class, using method outlined in detailing 101 thread
2) clay bar
3) polish with manzerna PO106ff and PC7424 (white pad)
4) sealed with Klasse HGSG

All of that took about 5 hours... dunno if thats long or not, but I don't care, it was fun and I think the results are pretty impressive (first time doing it)

Thanks for the kind words. The detail turned out great! Lots of depth and gloss, you took some nice reflection shots. Now the key is to maintain your vehicle properly so it stays looking like this year round!

Keep up the great work.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! Generally I try to wash every 2-3 weeks, so that should keep it looking good for a bit.
