    Spent about 6-7 hours with the wife's car last weekend.

    Wash. Dry. Detail. Claybar. Color correct areas. All over finishing wax/polish. Rain-x glass. Tire shine.
    Simple green on the wheels.

    My everything hurts. Damn you black cars...

    It's a black car. That happened in the time it took to load the camera app. Roughly 0.4 seconds. That's how long a black car stays clean.

    Looks great! Nice job. Labor of love.

    Now close the garage door and hermetically seal the garage if you want to keep it looking good. Totally agree with the 0.4 seconds. Gave up on my only black car, an 11 year old Infiniti years ago. :(

    Eh, I live in WashingTON. Keeping the car spotless becomes a daily task, something I got tired of a week into ownership.

    Cars look great!

    I noticed today, when I clicked photos on other threads, they pop up, then instantly vanish. I even disabled adblock and privacy badger with no effect... I think the site's jacked...

    Yeah, Sometimes pics direct me to a page that says the image is not available or something like that. Also, for the images you uploaded in post 1, if I look at the gallery view, some of the pics just disappear once I try to click on them.

    The site is definitely experiencing something weird, not sure if the admins know about it.

    More like damn you OCD. Nothing wrong with a dirty black car. Still looks better than a clean blue car that's for sure. To me of course, but I'm not normal.

    wow that's a clean model 3 - great work. Next you need a specially constructed dust free garage and never let the car out
