Gorgeous car! I can't believe they only made SG for one year...

I've had the privilege of seeing SG up close, and it is a spectacular color. The way it shimmers and changes shade subtly in the sunlight must be seen to be believed. Excellent choice on the spec!

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

Just finished a 11 hour detail on the M3 using various products I had in the garage. This was my first time trying a Porter Cable with Meguiar's DA kit. A really simple 2 step process (polish and wax) that makes detailing really quick. That step took about 4-5 hours start to finish.

It's pouring outside so this is the only picture of the finished products. The car wasn't in bad shape before but there were light swirls and a few scratches, that are now all gone:


Here are the steps:
- Clean wheels with SONAX wheel cleaner
- Wash (Einszett Exclusiv Glanz Shampoo + Foam Gun)
- Clay (just generic Meguiar's clay bar)
- Polish and Wax (Meguiars DA Microfiber Correction System Kit, 5-inch)
- Misc tire shine, window cleaner ect...

Didn't feel like this warrants a full thread in the detail section since I didn't take many pics.

Thanks for the kind words! It's pretty funny, as rare as this color, 3 out of the 10 or so E9x M3's at yesterday's meet was Sgraph

And this will happen again but: Not even 1 AW V8 M3 at the meet!

There's nothing like a clean S.Graph M3 on a sunny day. Nearly impossible to capture it properly on camera. Great pictures you guys!

Next mods will be FL tailights and a 3D design diffuser I think. I have to put some work into the E30 right now though.

She's running absolutely amazing right now.

Found a great pic that was laying around. Hopefully more to come when I go to Cars and Coffee at the end of the month.

Clean M you got there. Where in SC do you live? I'll be moving to Columbia in about a month and will be picking up a new car soon after I arrive.

Thank you guys! I really adore this car. Looks absolutely ridiculous when it's clean. Unfortunately, it hasn't been washed in almost 2 months

Thanks! I live in Greenville. Depending on what you are looking for, NC might be a better place to look for cars (if you are really picky that is). They have way more choices. The good news is that you are even closer to Charleston than I am. Love that city.
