Mein Auto: '11 M3 Coupe
Freshly detailed

It's been in the upper 50's and lower 60's in southern Ohio. I had just purchased PC 7424XP and some polish and sealant and decided to give it a go. I was going to wait til Spring. Since this was my first time, it took me about 6 hours. Steps included wash, clay bar, polish using Meguairs M105 to get rid of some swirls, polish using Meguairs M205, sealed with Blackfire Wet Diamond, and will be finishing it with a layer of Blackfire carnauba wax tonight.

For an amateur, the PC is pretty easy to use. I love the Blackfire sealant. It was easy on and easy off and the car looks wet and is smooth to the touch.

Sorry for the crappy iPhone photos.
