Silverstone E92 after polish!

I had a spare few hours yesterday and this morning. Gave her a wash and a two stage machine polish yesterday and then this morning applied a few layers of Zaino Z5. This is the 3rd time I've machine polished the car since I bought it. The finish is like glass now, needs to be seen in person really, pics don't do it justice.

It's been quite mild last few days and the roads haven't had any salt on either. Perfect weather, loads of grip and the car stays clean!

Love the way silverstone looks different shades in differing light. The colour I went for.

Yeah I'm pleased I went for it. I was looking for a space grey one but there weren't any about when I was looking. It's been overcast today and I think that's when SS looks it's best!

Possibly my favorite color BMW makes. CF roof is a beautiful accent piece. Well done.

Looks clean mate. The pics I took are with a iPhone 6 plus. Think if I used a better camera the pics would be a bit sharper.

Looks cool, do you guys not have to have a front license plate? Looks so smooth. How come you guys need those indicators in the front bumper?

Is your car a comp pack? Any spacers?

front license plate rule is state-to-state. I have the car registered in a state that does not require it.

the indicators are required by US law, but they can be removed or painted over. I'd like to remove them eventually, just lazy . . .

nope, car was a basic stripper / "civic" M3 - but have since gone the full bolt-on route (spacers, wheels, akra evo, etc.). keeps the car light and fast

hmm...E90 M3 SSII civic here...I just got silver ZCPs, maybe I should have held out for black GTS wheels...I think it looks better on a silver car.
