    As you guys know, I've been searching for a daily for a while! I finally found one and it is clean as can be! Maintenance records since new and this thing is spotless! It is a 2004 BMW 330i with the ZHP package.
    Here are some pictures from the ad.





    And then this pile of records came with the car!



    I will definitely be getting better pictures of the car after I find time to get it properly detailed. I have a busy weekend and week ahead, so I'll have to find time to take pictures sometime!

    Very nice . . . keeping it red. I'm sure the ladies will appreciate the refinement of this luxurious horseless carriage.

    I got bored and went out and took some quick pictures. They are straight out of the camera since I hate to pretty much wipe my computer the other day, and haven't gotten around to re-installing Photoshop.

    Today I went over to my frineds house to clean up the BBS'. He is a professional detailer so he had all of the proper tools for the job! We jacked up the car, removed the wheels, cleaned the barrels/faces, and then coated the wheels.

    This is what the barrels started off like:

    We then sprayed the cleaner on the wheels and allowed it to sit. As it sat, it changed colors as it loosened and removed some of the dirt.

    This stuff was VERY purple and bright!

    Didn't get a finished picture of the barrels, but you can see them in this picture! They were metallic black! Who knew!?

    My friend doing his thing!

    Cleaned and sprayed the inner fenders to clean them up!

    Debadged the trunk!

    And the final result! We noticed that the BMW center caps looked funny. Turns out they were stuck on top of the BBS caps, so we removed them! I wanted BBS caps anyways! Awesome find!

    I think your professional detailer is a hack

    I've got a lot less horsepower - luckily they are Japanese horses - usually in better shape and more motivated.

    So I ordered a few parts for the car to do some maintenance work on it! The first order of business was the cabin filter. It was not doing its job, so it was time to replace it!

    Next up was an oil change! It was time to change it and I was sick of the car yelling at me every time I turned it on "Oil Life: -500 miles!!!!" haha
    I reset the oil life and this is WAY more miles than I am comfortable going before the next oil change!

    I then lowered the car and cleaned up that bay a little. It is still dirty, but then again I'm super anal about this car!

    I wish I actually lowered the car! It could use a good .5'' drop!
