I agree.......sort of! I'm not a fan of Jerez on either version of the ///M.

My suggestion? If you order JzB or JB get to Costco or Sam's and buy lots of microfiber towels. I used those on my JB 330i, never got one swirl. Just wash it gently with a mit, use one MF towel to get the water off then wring it out, follow right away with the fresh dry MF towel, the result is perfection. Once you get the hang of it, you can do the whole car with 2 or 3 MF towels. Get a hi-quality car duster for inbetween washings. Use a spray on detailing solution after dusting if the car is not dirty for showroom shine in 10 minutes. I never drove my car dirty and it was never difficult keeping it sparkling using these methods.

LOL FifthStreetz ! We have JerezBlack and no incredible maintenance issues - just incredible quality time with our M3 when washing it ! Just like any other color if you want to have a shiny car IMHO.

I already have micro fiber towels.

I have a white GTI and it actually shows dirt more than my know gone e46 M3 in JB. I never had problems with swirls as I either hand polish / wax or use a griots orbital.. that and quick detail spray takes care of swirls in a hurry.

very curious what its going to be like to touch up nicks on JzB..i'd imagine that the touch up kit paint just won't blend the same.

metallics are the hardest to match color paint. although to me the JzB has very little metal flake in it . but rock chips would be very minor.

I agree with the MF towels but I would get high quality ones.
I get mine from Autogeek.
