Im curious what a detail job like that costs. That is a very thorough, complete job.

Props for awesome attention to detail. Most detail shops leave you with a result that you could have gotten for 15 bucks from the kid up the street. Those pictures show true professionalism.

Something tells me the owner of this M3 doesn't have a prob paying for a premium detail. You could buy a nice used WRX for the cost of his upgrades alone.

Does he track the car? How much hp is he putting down with that VF kit?

Oh yeah .... awesome job!

YouTube- Swissvax - Paul Dalton's Crystal Rock Wax - Water beading movie.

Theres a video with a subie with swissvax wax.
Ok so whats so special about the swissvax?? Appears like nice beads, but that comes with experience of detailer. Plus anyone with know-how can get a swirl-free flawless sea of black paint on a black car with say, meguiar's products. So what makes it so special, gold flakes ??

Yes just about every wax has carnuba in it, but Swissvax use's the best of the purist carnuba wax, very rare so it cost more
