That's one amazing transformation! Great detailing work.

I really love the way the Menzerma polishes work on the BMW paint. It's all that I use on my beast.

These babies clean up real well, especially with the right clay bar and polish!
Finally?!?!

There are many posts with equally detailed DIY instructions. Try the FAQ and "search" function.

Oh, and it is really poor form to "qoute" a post which has 20 pictures in it...it is needlessly repetitious, and adds nothing.

Gustav, let us know when you are coming to NY so we can set up an M5 meet. I could have Diny set it up too. He knows the spot where M5's meet because I can't remember the area.
