Yes. With Vinylx.

A few months ago I cleaned the dash with Woolite:water mix followed by some 303 Aerospace. Been maintaining it since with Meguiars Quick Interior Detailer. I needed something low shine along with cleaning abilities so I grabbed the Vinylx... Looks real nice and matt.

As for the rest of the interior, its wearing BMW's Leather care cleaner & conditioner (re-labeled meguiars).

I used to use the Vinylex on my Porche and thought it was too glossy.
I'll test an area again. What glass cleaner do you use?

Very nice 4.8, I agree that black is the best color when clean!

I was using a MF applicator with maybe 2-3 spritz for have the dash.

I really like NXT glass cleaner (very slippery) and does not leave streaks when usings 1-2 sprays per window... My biggest helper of all when it comes to cleaning any windshield from the inside is


http://www.detailcity.com/glass-master-pro.html

The outside windows just get a hit of QD after the wash..

Yes it is. But I wish, and think about it everytime, how much I would've loved Le Mans Bleu or Titanium Silver. Silver when well detailed can be just as noticable as black and the Le Mans Bleu is pure sex.

Ont op of all that, you can notice the 4.8is bodykit more when a different color than the trim...I can spot a 4.8is a mile away if its color is anything other than black.

Looks nice !! Where do you buy your menzerna products? I've been using Zymol and keep hearing good things about menzerna so I'd like to try their polishes.

The menzerna polishes have become exclusively available at www.properautocare.com The menzerna polishes are a little expensive, especially the ceramic polishes, but I would buy the " blackfire" brand if I were you. Its the exact same polish with the same amount of abrasives, except with more lubricating oils, making it a lot easier to buff paint using a polisher, especially with a rotory polisher like what I use. Best part is they don;t use filling oils.
