2006 BMW 323i

Just finished, products used;
  • Zaino Z-PC
  • Zaino Z-AIO (Zaino Z-6 wipe down afterwards)
  • Zaino Z-2 PRO (two coats, Zaino Z-6 wipe down between)
  • Zaino Z-8 (final wipedown)
  • Autoglym Car Glass Polish (window exterior)
  • Stoners Invisible glass (window interior)
  • Autoglym Instant Tyre Dressing

No clay bar, as I had just done that a month ago.

I don't have any before pictures, as my camera batteries were charging.

Very nice!
Didn't know you could get a 323i in CA.
That's still an Inline6 right?
Can't wait till the late next year when the 318i comes back.

The CA market 323i is a 2.5L, a slightly detuned version of the European 325i. It doesn't meet US emissions requirements though.

I tend to disagree.

I have white, and I think it is one of the easiest to maintain. Yet probably the toughest color to really show depth and gloss. Just my opinion.
