    Like a Mirror! Snow foam then rinse + Maguire's wash and wax carnauba then rinse and dry boom! Simple and for the winter maybe some ceramic spray to repel. 5A2EA3B5-E6F0-4348-9E40-082D94BD89AD.jpeg

    I can see that car getting swirls just sitting there. Lol. Most of the cars i have owned have been black, never again. Get it looking pristine and what seems like hours later it looks dirty again. Never again! Looks great though.

    There's a ton of M3's in my area, but I have yet to see one, other than mine, that isn't filthy dirty. Says something about the people around here that buy M3's.

    out of all the Tesla colors Black is the worst/ugly looking. I don't know why-no matter if it's X, S or 3-the Black don't go with either the design or something.

    Very nice job OP. Too bad, judging from your outdoor charging setup, you don't get to park inside the garage. :p
