Overview of BMW 328i

Due to the affluence here in Orange County, CA, BMW's are a frequent site; the more expensive convertible is only slightly less common.

Convertible BMW's epitomize the California attitude and lifestyle, and is generally considered a "chick car" although depending on the color and after market accessories, can certainly be made with a more masculine appeal. This example today is duly appointed for a female driver.

Paint Details

White is about the easiest color of car paint to detail and maintain; the only exception would be silver or taupe by a slight margin. When it comes to car paint protection and enhancement on a light colored car, you have a few more options due to the forgiving nature of white. With that said, I generally start the protection process with a base coat of a synthetic polymer sealant which will provide the ultimate in protection. Then a quality spray wax followed up weekly after washings, or once a month will do much to extend the life of the polymer sealant. The Meguiar's products listed in the third column over at the right are some of my professional choices.

Wheel Details

These wheels are the upgraded factory 18" sport wheels finished in the easy care silver clear coat. I am partial to wheels finished in the silver as it highlights every detail of the wheels themselves and really shows when a wheel is truly clean throughout! By keeping up on these wheels from day one, maintenance remains at a minimum with use of a mild cleaner, followed up with a spray wax for protection and visual enhancement just like on your car paint. Once again, I prefer the Meguiar's spray wax over in the right column for a quality product that is incredibly user friendly.

Interior Details

BMW uses nothing but quality materials assembled with excellent fit and finish. As the saying goes, you definitely get what you pay for and the quality of these interiors is immediately apparent upon first sliding behind the steering wheel. This black interior is perfect for hiding the dirty dirt, but highlights all forms of superficial dirt like lint and dust; trade-off's right? The contrasting black interior is an excellent combination with the upgraded metallic white paint.

Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Wax

Meguiar's Ultimate Quick Wax is a spray detailer and wax all in one. Use as a stand alone wax after using the clay bar, or to enhance and refresh any wax already on your paints finish. This product is so easy to use, and very light in consistency, I actually use this as a Quik Detailer; this way I am also getting added wax protection and enhancement each time. Recommended for any dark colored cars after washing for added depth and glossing. Ideal for hot climates, as can be used in direct sunlight on hot paint.

Griot's Garage Micro Fiber Cloths

If you are new to micro fiber, you are in for a big treat! These amazing wonders have completely replaced the ageless staple of baby diapers as the universally accepted tool for wax removal. So versatile, you will find many other uses for them also. I simply reserve a number of these cloths for wax removal only.

Water Sprite Chamois

The exact chamois I have used professionally for over twenty years; still the best! I like this over-sized version that I cut in half; one half is reserved for freshly washed cars, the other half for dirtier jobs like wiping door jambs. Simply hose out with pressure when they get dirty. All the benefits of natural chamois, with none of the drawbacks! An absolute must for every "Driveway Detailer".
