Finally got to use Auto Finesse Allusion. Beads pretty well and makes the paint look really deep

I love crystal rock. Looks absolutely insane especially when SV professional finish was used before application.

Of course, I would never spend $1500 myself on it. However im waiting for the new SV developmental waxes that are going to be released sometime soon

I had crystal rock put on while I was getting my paint correction done. The added price was minimal and totally worth it compared to the cost of the correction. My car is always garaged and maintained properly. I'm going the cquartz route next in the upcoming months

That has got to be with some seriously minimalistic driving. I had CR on for about four months and it was done... I run SV Shield now and it lasts about six months at best but is excellent with daily bug accumulation quick removal...

I have been using Liquid Glass for protection and also Meguiar's Hi-Tech Carnauba Wax for the color depth.

Last week, I did full polish with my PC and wolfgang's swirl remover and glaze I then sealed it with klasse sealant, the next day I put a second coat of sealant. Today (A week after) I washed her and put a coat of auto finesse passion wax, she came out very nice, when the wife got home she noticed it right away and told me I was sick and needed help I had no choice but to detail her 335i and waxed it with the same wax. Unfortunately it rain and her car got wet. I managed to take a pic of the top just to show you guys. I thought it looked kinda cool.
