Yeah, I coordinated a car care tech session for the BMWCCA at the Griot's Garage flagship store, and they used my car to demonstrate their products. His buffing made a big difference.

I keep telling myself I need to learn how to buff my car. Washing it yesterday for the show made me realize just how many tiny scratches there are on it.

Yeah, my paint was pretty good, but when you looked at it in direct sunlight, you could see lots of super fine scratches. The buffing pulled them all out and now all you see is a super deep metallic black. Really helps the colored metallic flakes stand out.

While I usually condone putting Racelands on budget E36s, I cringe when I think about them being put on an ///M. If you've got the money to buy an M3, it deserves a nicer suspension setup.

I'm looking to autocross this so I'm still looking around...as of right now though, I'm leaning towards KW V3.

Yeah, an M3 definitely deserves a better suspension than Racelands.
