Multi-Weekend Project '08 E90 Jerez Black

I recently moved from MI (Ann Arbor Area) to the Boston Area working for the VA. I bought the M3 last January and she is need of some deep TLC. I spent the weekend giving her two baths, a clay treatment and a few coats of wax/sealants. I still have much more including cleaning the rims, windows and taking care of the leather. Im renting a garage for the winter and plan on dedicating my remaining weekends of Oct & Nov to her upkeep. BTW it rained all weekend out here....so no sunny pics yet.

Starting out:

Are you planning on polishing it? It is in desperate need of a paint correction.

I forgot to mention this in my previous reply, but there are buffer trails all over the car from whoever polished it last. Might want to find a decent detailer in your area to get that fixed before you apply waxes or sealants to the car.
