    Hi y'all, this is my first post. Honestly, I don't belong in this crowd who are so passionate, knowledgeable about their cars and treat it like a baby. I happen to own a jet black 2015 BMW X5, with very low miles on it (22K) and great engine/interiors (regular servicing, oil changes etc)...

    Hello I recently traded in a 340xi for an M3 that has the Competition package. Two questions on detailing: what is best to use on the carbon fiber roof for cleaning and protection? I see some threads about this, but not quite sure how best to protect that piece as it will get a lot of sun...

    Hi All, With summer time just on the brink here in NY I've been looking to do a paint correction on my 325CI. I looked into having a few different local companies do it for me, but its just too expensive for me. With that said, I have been looking at doing my own paint correction. My...

    Hey folks, I like to try to keep the 6 as immaculate as possible. As it is the lightest color interior, this can sometimes be a challenge. Would love to hear any tips for cleaning the following: 1) Along the door sill. The plastic textured part of the sill gets dirt in it from people...

    I do a deep cleaning (my version) once a year on my BMW X5 (E70) Black Sapphire. This car is June 2010 build and currently has close to 100,000 miles. I bought this car new. I will pose the specific question at the end. Due to time constraints I can only do this deep cleaning/detailing once...

    Short back story, this is my personal vehicle that a certain dealer decided to wash against my wishes and without my consent. Being very soft black paint the damage they caused goes without saying grrr. I get asked about how one goes about correcting swirl marks and why it takes so long. This...

    Took the new 328d wagon, Mineral Grey, on a break-in road trip. 1150 miles through the mountains in the summer bugs and heat. I was camping much of the time, so no access to hose or large amounts of water. Twice during the trip, about 3 days apart, I did manage to stop at a spray-it-yourself car...

    I'm selling a foam cannon that I no longer use. I bought it about 2 years ago and have since moved into an apartment and no longer have my pressure washer (required to use) with me so the cannon is no longer being used. I only used the cannon three times before I had to move, so it's essentially...
