SpecC Detailed : BMW E90 Jerez Black M3

I don't remember exactly what color this is called. I think it's Jerez Black. Anyways, it's probably the cleanest car that's come to my garage yet. I barely needed to wash it. It was even waxed already.

The man wanted a one step detail. I figured I would use PO203S on uber green pad to take care of everything. For the most part, it worked great. Then I figured, why not give M205 a shot since these swirls aren't very deep at all. On some of the panels, I used M205 on 3M UK yellow pad with the Kevin Brown method. It doesn't but nearly as much as PO203S, but it finishes a lot better. There were other swirls and RDS that were impossible with just these two polishes, so I told him that it'd take more work to get the rest done.

It was dark when I was done, and I needed to give the car back on the same day, so I just took a bunch of pictures in my garage.













Sorry I was a bit rushed today, so I couldn't take as many pictures as I wanted to. Enjoy.
