ghead i just bought a black 99 M3. after getting it home and taking a good look at it i find that the guy i bought it from didn't like to take his time on the waxing because there is white streeks of waz on the black trim. it looks horrible and have no idea what to do. any suggestions? please! also, in the future, and tips on making sure i don't make the same mistake. i'm almost tempted to mask off the trim before i wax everytime.

To remove wax from black trim try peanut butter (really, this is not a joke)) just scrub it on and then wipe it ff. I do suggest creamy versus crunchy.

You can use this on all your trim........without that PB smell....just another option..
Masking isnt a bad idea anyway, make sure you use either blue or green painters tape.....Its really not necessary to get wax/sealant right up to the edge, just get it close enough. When your removing the product, theres generally enough on the towel to add to where you didnt get it the first time.....

I had that same problem. I used Meguirs back to black and my trim got cleaned off and it looks brand new. I did that close to a month ago and it still looks good. I had wax on my trim for months before that.
