Thanx for all the compliments..........

I'd give all credits to P21S products and the detailing center who make my car so shinnyyyyy............

Huper Optik Ceramic30 is the answer..........

damn, who turned on the lightsssss...I remember seeing p21s at a local dealer Momentum. I might give that a try if it is not too expansive.

AW330, where did you get your P21S products?

I don't think that dark colors get shinier technically but that the light reflections in them are more obvious and contrast more, therefore possibly giving the impression of more shiny.

And of course lots of lighting helps too. This reminds me of my car when I finished the Zaino job on it and it didn't rain EVERY FREAKIN DAY.

Looks good by the way, kit, rims, and all. Yet another shot where SG is faking us out looking more like Graphite Silver.

Frankly speaking, I think the neon light at the detailing shop does help a lot but during daytime it's still shinny........

That's the trick of the car detailer to have a ceiling full of neon lights......good thing is that with lots of lights, car detailers can see much easier while they're doing their job and also the car owner will be mesmerized with the light illusion.......

By the way, I got the P21S from www.autogeek.com
Make sure that you get the car care kit, it saves you lots of money.

Swissol and Zaino are great as well but they are more expensive.....

A friend of mine who owns this detailing center says that he's willing to share his expertise with everyone of us......

Please send him a question you'd like to ask to this e-mail address.

I wish that I had an indoor place to wash the car (let alone wax it) for when it's cold or raining (like now and most weekends).

How I get this shine?.......Just wash your car like you normally do....then use the paintwork cleansing lotion.......after that apply the P21S wax, leaveit on the paint for a minute and wipe it off immediately with a clean microfiber cloth........
As simple as that..... :rocks:

hey i dont see the kit in there though, i just see the wax and lotion seperate, do u have a direct link to the kit? thanx
