FMINUS Detailed: 2009 BMW 135i Jet Black

This is a new car with less than 3k on the odo. Even being new, there were plenty of VERY deep swirling and RIDS. It was also ridden with waterspots.

Cosmoline and other contaminates were also plenty on the paint.

After removing the clear bra per owners request, I went to work. I removed the majority of the swirls and RIDS, but the surface definitely wasnt perfect. However, I did not want to remove too much clear as the car is an 09, and also Jetblack. The owner decided to correct the clear perpetually as opposed to taking too much off all at once.

looks amazing. How hard is it to maintain that look after that much attention has been given to the paint?

wow! great job, I was wondering how that wax was considering its $$$, the color and detail in the refelections are very crazy, I too am looking to wax my jet black (08) soon, would this wax be the best choice, any other products you can suggest for a newer jet black paint? thx in advance

90% of the result relies on the polishing. ANY wax will look good as long as you get some good work underneath the wax!
