Thanks. When I first got the car I wanted a thread like this so after trial and error and gathering advice from guys on here figured there are some new guys that would want it.

I dumped the dirty water on the ground. The other bucket is the wash bucket that has the clean water.

Ah, but that water is only "mostly clean" water, it is clearly not "CLEAN" water and I would agree that skipping that step may make more sense.

Nice write up. While reading it, I became very glad that I now have a driveway and my own hose and don't have to save my quarters anymore.

However, you've only washed, you haven't put any form of wax or polish on yet.

Yeah they are decals and they are flawless. Had them for about...2 months now and they look like I just put them on. In my old e46 m3, I tried the carbon fiber look decals and they peeled like no tomorrow. I think the carbon fiber look ones are horrible but these jet black ones are awesome.
