PAL Auto Purple Clay

Interior:
Vx5000 Steam Cleaner

Megs Burgandy Wool w M105 on Hood and Trunk via Makita Rotary
Menz SIP w/ Orange LC Pad multiple times on the entire car via Makita Rotary

Washes to remove all polishing oils and dust

Had some usual car wash swirling, along with deeper swirls on the hood and trunk from extra pressure when drying is my guess. Lower panels and side skirts needed some serious claying, as you can see looking at the clay bar after doing one skirt.

I'm sure AT and non ZSP make for a comfortable ride though. Deep green photos are up now, just wanted to save the spot, and thanks for the compliment.

Unfortunately it did, the weather has been terrible lately.

I actually like it, gives the car a sporty look, would have been nicer if it was a glossy black, since it would match the shadow line trim. However it is vinyl so it's easy to go back to the gray. A lot of newer Mercedes' have a black roof, it comes with the panoramic sun roof option.

Cool. I see the green ones now. By far, the prettiest car of the three. Great choice for interior and exterior colors.

Again, very nice work. Too bad it rained, but the beading looks perfect.

To be honest it depends on many variables.

The cars weren't from the same family or anything of the sort, but I agree that all of them were nice cars in their own way. I loved the Lemon interior, first time I've seen it in person.

That's actually not the first time I've heard that, I didn't know it was a Jersey thing . I like it though, I think it looks great on the car. I'm gonna be doing the spoiler next just to match better.

It actually is glossy black, just wasn't as glossy as I thought it would be, but nonetheless, I still like it.

It's a 335i. The xi sits noticeably higher.

Just wanna say thanks again Pat! Everything came out great, just too bad that this never ending storm cloud won't get away from NJ. But if anyone around the area needs a detail, I definitely recommend him.

Yes the first car is Platinum Bronze not beige, I just simply didn't know the actual color, thanks for clearing that up, and thank you everyone for the feedback.

Thank you for your kind words Phil, you have a very good looking car, I think a drop would make it just perfect! Look forward to seeing your car again.
