    We're the 2nd owners of this car, and the 1st owner didn't take that good care of it...lots of scratches/dings. Unfortunately, I was limited to what I had in the garage, but, I tried :hsd:

    I personally prefer Maguires over anything....you could get some tire gel/spray for your tires...looks good though :bigthumb:

    Looks great. The VM and the S-100 will give that black a very deep wet look.

    Looks pretty good for off the shelf products. #9 is a good polish and pretty much any wax will look good over it.

    If you can afford a 750, then you can afford a PC and a quart of Meguiars Speed Glaze to really clean up the paint. ;)

    Top with Vanilla Moose and your choice of wax or sealant and prepare to be stunned at how good it looks.

    BTW, excellent job on the wheels! BMW rims can be a PITA to do with all thoe fins and copious amounts of brake dust.

    :bigthumb: Advice from the man himself :bowdown:

    [i'm only 21..the 750 is my dad's. ;) ]

    So, on my next detail, i could apply swirl remover, speed glaze, Vanilla Moose, and then s100? should that be good enough?

    and yeah, the wheels took about an hour and a half :mad:

    SG is more agressive than a SMR, and SG breaks down fast, you shouldn't need an SMR after SG... go SG > VM > S100 :cool:

    Looks really nice for a first timer. Why did you ever let it get so dirty though?

    Exactly! #80, VM and pretty much any wax or sealant will look great.
