thanks man, I changed my HRE order, first ordered your wheels but then changed my mind, didn't want to become a copy of your car, I still need to get a euro bumper like yours...

i love what you've done with your car. you've brought out everything that is positive in a Frozen finish....you've actually got me switching to BMW nano wax.

i've had Swisswax for awhile now and not too thrilled. i'm going to give your regiment a shot.

thanks man, I have tried swissvax and Dr Beasleys but IMO the BMW nano wax is the best, swissvax leaves it too shiny and Dr Beasleys doesn't leave that soft touch feel as the nano wax
I saw your car pictures at the other post, it looks really nice!

thanks! you always have stunning pics on your car's upkeep. it's real inspirational.

ach.... that thread! the amount of lies being thrown about there is frustrating. you were far more of a gentleman in your answers than i was. to think some of those people actually sell BMWs is scary.

btw, i did notice we have the same lip....did you paint yours frozen black?

lastly, would you mind listing the all the products you use from start to finish? just on your car's body....i gotta admit, i'm just going to copy what you're doing.

About the other thread there are guys who have never seen a frozen color BMW and talk trash (comparing a brand new BMW matte finishing with a junk car coated with primer!)
This is what I use to detail my car:
Dr Beasley prescription kit with the exception of the wax which I use the BMW nano wax
Dr Beasley's prescription kit comes with a matte body wash, a matte paint cleaner, matte paint sealant and the matte final finish (replace it with the nano wax)
First wash it with the matte body wash, then apply the cleaner, then the sealant when it is still wet and then the BMW nano wax
The prescription kit comes with a matte final finish but I use the nano wax instead
Apply all these products every 3-4 months, then only the matte car shampoo every week
Very simple process and the matte finishing stays as new as the first day you picked up your car

I'm wasn't a fan of the 'frozen' colors until seeing this thread. Wow!

Very nicely done indeed. Of course, for some reason, I think red would have been a better choice.
