: first time detailing for inside and out

Hey guys,

I just bought my 2003 330i last week, and I want to have it looking as beautiful as the pics I see you guys have of your cars. I've been looking through random posts (before I get yelled at for not using the search function) and all the recommendations are scattered for what to use to do the inside and outside of the car. So I was hoping to get specific products (what company's products to use for the actual car wash to the sprays, clays, cloths etc. including where to purchase them online) as what order to apply them in, in this post. Also what do you guys use to clean/condtion your leather and dashboards?

Thank you in advance, and I apologize if I seem like a nag, but it is only in my best efforts to have my BMW be the most amazing looking car on the block, which you guys would understand.

This post will help you with the outside:

The recommendations are scattered for what to use inside (and outside for that matter) because it's a matter of opinion and personal preference. You are asking the same group of people that wrote the posts you read while searching, so you're going to get the same scattered responses. Search here again and on the Wash, Wax, Detailing ... section of If you're brave, check out Then do what makes the most sense to you.

Here's one to get you started:
