Yeah I'm obsessed with detailing. I wax my car once every 2 weeks and use detail spray after every drive to keep it looking fresh

What do u use?? I got mine detailed at BMW a few weeks ago but after one wash I think I washed the wax off lol.. It was super wet looking for a day or two but I think it was just a quick detail that wasn't meant to last.. He gave me a bottle of wax but I'm kind of nervous to put anything on my car, although I have swirl marks out the ass!! I called Gary Dean to get a quote for corrective detail but he wanted around $1k and I'm not bout that life right now lol.. It looks fine from 5 ft away but once up close in the light u can see swirl mark city...

U need to compound and polish. Then wax. The best compound is meguires m105 and m 205 for the polish. It has allot of cut so u will need a buffer to do it right. If u want I'll come to ur house and show u how to do it one day. I have all the products and I'll get your car looking nice

That's wassup bro! I thought about buying all the shit I need to do it, but I'm not much of a body detailer although I'm sure I could learn.. Just didn't wanna do it on my $20k car as a test run lol..

I didn't do my homework on Jet Black beforehand so now I'm stuck until I learn how to do it right.. I tried some of that quick detailer spray but it just smears around a lot, even with a waffle microfiber towel.. I've read that's because I don't have enough wax on there so it's the undercoating that's causing streaking and that's kinda gay so I need to figure something out asap..

I live in an apt complex and have access to shady areas under my carport but there's no power connectors out there for a DA polisher.. Doesn't it have to be done in the shade??

Almost makes me feel guilty for never detailing or washing my car myself, and just running it through a car wash every couple of weeks....almost.

I take mine to this carwash up the street and use the hose only, then microfiber when I'm done but only because I know that it's gonna take some real detailing supplies to get it how I want it so why spend $15 at a carwash only to add more swirls haha..
