Thanks!

Took that one on Grand St near Hudson St in Jersey City. If you cross the Light Rail tracks and head towards the water on Grand, there's a dead end with a 9/11 memorial with a piece of WTC steel there (you can see the US flag draped on it in the pic).

On weekends, esp. Sunday, there's limited car traffic there and sunlight hits around mid-afternoon. You do get some car traffic, but mostly people driving down Grand St who loop around the cul de sac to take a look at the NYC skyline, snap a camera phone pic and drive away.

Don't do it during the week... it's all investment banks along the water. Security will make you leave if you block the road.

Phil and crew detailed it over in Norwood, NJ. They did my E46 as well. These guys are pros and work on some extremely high end cars.

Some examples:

Some pics from when I picked up my cars from the detailer...

Here's what Phil did with my 12 yr old E46 330Ci...



And here's my E92 M3 after they detailed it...

The corruption continues...

Tell Phil that Albert Lee (the guy with the iPads in airports) sent you. He's phil@detailersdomain.com. Having seen your filthy car, I'd love to see what magic he can work on it!

ps. Phil drives an M3 as well now... big change for him. He's a big Porsche and Audi guy. If you can spend a bit of time with him, his car history is extensive and impressive.

OP, wow, that last photo is stunning.

Fairly low miles which I assume most were from ED and trip back from the PCD. You may need to plan some weekend drives.

Yeah, have only had 2 trips outside of ED (1425 miles) and PCD (750 miles or so). Quite honestly, I can live a life with no cars here in NYC. The 330Ci was a relic from my days living in the suburbs. The M3 was a moment of weakness when I found out the were going to stop making them.

Now, I'm the idiot in NYC with 2 cars. But they're both a ton of fun when I do get to drive them.
