OK, got a question. I was waxing my M3 and the thought occured to me. I wonder if i am the only one that goes to the lengths that i do to keep my M3 looking like it just came off the showroom floor. So i will tell ya'll what i do and would like to hear about any other tricks that you guys might have as well. Your thoughts would be kewl as well.
1st comes the wash. I will take my M3 to the local wash it yourself if for no other reason than to watch all the ricers look at her as i drive through LOL i know it is bad but so much fun.
ok i wash the car with the power washer and once the soap is applied i use a mitt to hand wash. I never use that lame brush as it leaves scratches and swirls. i hand wash the rims and tires as well. once washed and rinsed i then dry her off with a chamoise cloth. next stop home. once i get home i detail the inside. Vacuum and get all the dirt out of the cracks with a detailer's brush kit. i then do the dash and other non-leather areas with Meguiar's vinyl and rubber protectant(natural shine). I follow this up with cleaning the leather using Meguiar's leather cleaner. this is followed by Meguiar's leather conditioner. Ok the inside is now complete. On to the fun stuff. Waxing. I love that showroom, bright, deep shine so i wax in 3 stages.
Stage 1. Meguiar's Scratch X - this gets rid of any swirl patterns or scratches in the paint.
Stage 2 Mothers Carnauba wax for that deep shine and protection
Stage 3 Meguiar's Gold classic Clear Coat Protectant Wax for the UV protection and ultra shine
Finally in between waxes for touch ups and quick shines i use Meguiar's Quick detailers spray on wax. just spray it on and wipe it off and you got your showroom shine again.
So that is my routine. Granted it takes a day or so if you are taking your time. Mine is garaged most of the time so i do it in stages.
What do you think???? too much???? :lol:
