:3: :M5launch:

Been an amazing car since I got it February, 2013! Makes me happy every day. Rocking a Rogue SSK and trans mount, Evolve headers and CAI, and JB tune. Still need to get back to LA for that dyno tune and I'll make a nice writeup about the performance mods... About time for an oil change. Need to finish up my Nexus install and headlight retrofit.

Impressively low mileage. I was astoundingly happy last year when I bought mine with 69,000 miles.

I wonder how minty feeling your car is compared to most of ours.

The paint is more beat up than it should be for the mileage. She'll be going in soon for correction and cquartz. Batman7knight could tell you--he's driven it although is been a while. Actually he'll probably take it for another spin when we meet up in a week.

Have you looked into OptiCoat? If so, wondering what the deciding factors were for cquartz? I've heard good things about both, and have OptiCoat on the M5 and love that it takes 5 minutes to completely dry my car with a battery powered leaf blower.

Very cool. That was me many, many years ago...(picked up with 19K miles in 2004, 88K now).

Extensively. Results have looked great although I'm a little uncomfortable with the semi-permanence of it. My detailer doors a fantastic (and expensive) job and prefers the cquartz. I realize he has more to gain from a product that needs to be redone every 2-4 years. From what I've seen the actual protection and gloss is prey much the same. Realistically though, even OptiCoat isn't permanent as it will likely still wear down from abrasion and other elements over time and once it gets to a certain point you're stuck polishing it off as opposed to just stripping CQuartz and reapplying.
