Wanted to share my sons new car...well new to him :-We washed it, clayed it, put show car glaze on it, I had to color sand a scratch out of it , removed the wheels to clean the backside, then put the brake dust repellant on it, and meguiar tire shine, then put the ultimate wax on it, and followed up with some Ultimate quick detailer...

Thanks fellas...ya, I only had to color sand one scratch, but the car is very nice. It is also quick with Twin turbos and 300+hp, a lot of fun to drive...0-60 in 4.7 seconds. We've never had it faster than 60 :-)

In doing some research on the motor I learned that they start ~1400 rpm and produce power to 7000 Rpm, so odds are they were 'working' but definitely we were not at 7k.

Very nice BMW. The power that these modern sports sedans have is quite amazing when you consider it from the perspective of 1980 when you could barely find a car with 200 hp. The fact that they can still get reasonable fuel economy is a tribute to all the engineering that has gone into the evolution of the automobile over the last 30 yrs. You did a very professional job on the detailing.

Great looking car and you two really dressed it up nicely. Glad to hear it has lots of zip.
