There are few things in life that are as good looking as a freshly waxed black car.

The problem is that the pleasure doesnt last for too long, hard to keep it clean!

Yeah, what has been your experience with it? Your car looks great. I recently did a full detail myself using Meg 105, and Poorboys polish and sealant with an orbital buffer. It took me about 16 hours total over two days. Just wondering what your process was.

my process is much shorter, it takes me about 4 hours for the whole process:
1) first clay the whole surface, this is pretty easy, just spray the liquid over the surface and rub the clay bar on the surface and then just wipe it out with a microfiber towel (30 minutes)
2) then apply the swissvax cleaner fluid regular (pre-wax treatment) with an applicator pad by hand, this takes the longest time since it builds up an oily base-coat that is kind of hard to rub it off (2 hrs)
3) once you have rubbed off the cleaner fluid, apply the swissvax Blau-Weiss wax (special wax for BMW paints), apply it also with an applicator pad in circular motion, then wipe it out with a microfiber towel, it comes out pretty easy, much easier than other waxes (1.5 hrs)

Good to know. I have heard of Swissvax but have never really paid attention to it. Based on what you have described, it sounds very easy to use. I will have to check it out.

It is a bit expensive but worth it

Sweet. I need a recommendation for some a top notch detailing shop in NYC who does work like this. I wish I had a garage and time to do it myself but...
