    2021 M3 Roof Leak?

    DIY Coating, Polish, Sealant for new MS?

    Folks, I am the type of car owner that actually enjoys washing and detailing my own car. I don't mind "having to" wax it even once a month if it's going to look great. Having said that, I'm interested to hear what car products you have used that really give the shine/pop/mirror-like finish...
