Sorry for the lack of photos. I was a bit of a rush to clean up our E90 M3. The car was poorly prepped by my dealer several years ago. This was the first time it got any type of proper and real detail.

For the record, Auto Finesse Desire is freaking incredible! I wish the photos could truly capture how deep and vivid Melbourne Red can be.

Looks amazing! I have a MR E90 as well and recently did a detail with Triple and Tough Coat. Now wondering if maybe I should go for a top layer wax since your car looks so rich...

Thanks everyone for the compliments.

The photos were really not editing except for resize, sharpen, and bringing out some of the shadows. The lighting was a bit harsh due to the time of the day, so I wanted to try show as much of the paint as possible. If ever, bringing out the shadows could actually make the color more flat or reveal more imperfections. As you can see from the photos, despite that, the paint still looks incredibly vivid.

AF Desire seriously enriched the depth of Melbourne Red. This was my first time using it and it took awhile to get a hang of things. In the end, it was really worth it! I am excited to see the longevity and strength of this wax.

The E90 will probably get it's next big detail before winter. I really want try AF Tough Prep and Power Seal to protect the paint against our harsh winters.
