Ummm....well the 2005's have been on the dealer lots since what...late Aug, early September?

The E90 will be a 2006 model.

Well as I said, I'm sorry. But perhaps you should e-mail all the sites still showing this:

As far as I knew, the car was slated for a 1st quarter release next year.

Yeah, I went back and saw that. I didn't realize what it said till I went back and read it myself. I was just thinking out loud when I was typing it. No hard feelings. I edited as necessary.

Polishes/waxes/glazes/ ect are a matter of taste. If you dig through the detailing forum archives you will read about the brands and methods most of the folks here use. Its really a form of alchemy. There are many different formulas.

Its a pretty big list, and each of us has our own goals and budgets. You really need to experiment around a little and see what works best for you.

I started out with the cheep nasty waxes from Walmart/Target, moved up to using 3M Imperial Hand Glaze topped off by several coats of a carnumba wax called One Grand Blitz wax, and am now using Klasse All In One topped with Klasse Sealent Glaze.

Best combo I've seen - been using it for a year with excellent results.

~One manís opinion / observations~

New cars with OEM water based paint are cured at high temperatures, sometimes as high as 300 degrees in special baking ovens and can be waxed the moment it is rolled out of the manufacturing plant.

New cars go through the painting and baking process without any of the rubber, plastic, and cloth components installed. This is why they can expose the cars paint to such high temperatures. These high temperatures and special paints used at the factory level ensure the paint is fully cured by the time the car leaves the assembly line.

I would endorse the use of Klasse as a sealant (would also advise that you use detailers clay (yes I know its a new vehicle) Even new cars that have been setting on the lot for a few weeks can accumulate surface contamination. Don't assume a vehicle that looks good is contamination free

~Hope this helps~
