So over the past couple of days I've done a lot of work on detailing my car.
I thoroughly washed her, detailed all the trim and grill, shined the wheels and tires, cleaned out and shined up everything underneath my hood, and cleaned out and wiped down the interior. Then today I claybar-ed all around, then waxed her. Looks amazing. Gonna have to do it before bimmerfest too.

tried some ICE liquid clay bar. its super easy to use and made the car look really good. I removed the kamotors corner splitters, and repainted one side skirt.

smoked OEM, I used to sell them but people on this forum thought $100 was waay to much to pay for OEM smoked tail lights. So I sold about 4 pairs on r3v and E30tech and then stopped.
