AMAZING JOB!! Very impressive. Where in NJ are you guys located. Im in Queens but would consider taking a road trip once the warmer weather hits. I Usually wash, wax and clay my own M3 but Its gotten away from me the past few months.
My beige extended interior has gotten pretty dirty as well. A result of my dark winter coat.
