This wasn't as clean as I anticipated.. My front bumper is all nicked from people bumping into me and rear bumper is scratched in the corner after someone turned to sharp. It's really hard to maintain black paint and I always find my car looks dirty compared to others. Here in Montreal Canada, the streets are so bad and dusty that after 5 minutes of driving, the car is already full of dust What I do to make it look as good as possible is:
-wash it down with some car soap (2 bucket method if it's really dirty)
-Use soap and water and clay the whole car (paint needs to be lubricated while claying, soap and water from the wash mitt will do just fine) claying takes out a lot of particles that you won't see but will make a huge difference in making the paint smooth. Make sure to rinse while claying, or the dirt will just settle back on the paint.
-Rinse the car again and dry it.
-I then polish the car with a smooth polish, I usually use a compound on my front bumper since I get a bunch of crap from the roads.
-Then wax the whole car: I use meguires gold or wtv it's called. Apply it, leave it settle a bit and then wipe it off with a micro fibre.
I usually find the car looks better after the next wash because it gets rid of all the residue left from the wax.
Hope it helps, I probably missed some points but don't hesitate to pm.

Yeah i agree with you on that, the e92 is much more aggressive and also has many more mods you can do with it.
lol you should try switching mb dealerships when you get your c63, in the long run it would probably be more worth it. I've been to 4 different bmw dealerships for maintenance issues and things like that, and different dealerships tend to be more honest, less honest, etc. you just gotta go around until you get that right one.

Yea my BMW dealer has been fine with me especially that I have a tune, intakes and muffler delete. I'm sure if I go to another mb dealer they will treat me differently.
