Cars both looking great! It's a labor of love to do these deep clean jobs, if you've got the patience for it, all the better.

I had the drive to do it for the first 3.5 years with my M3, but the labor of love part has dwindled rapidly over the last year. I was doing twice-weekly full washes, with monthly full details from March/April through November. Had to wash it the other week, and what a chore it felt like.

How did you do the wheel cleaning/ceramic application? Do you have a 2/4 post lift to keep the car suspended, or did you do:

Jack corner up, remove wheel.
Clean wheel
Dry Wheel
Ceramic coat 1
Wait 2 hours
Ceramic coat 2
Wait two hours
Curing agent
Re-install wheel and move to the next corner.

I find wheel cleaning/detailing off of the car to be incredibly inefficient without getting the car wholly off ground, or having a second full set of wheels for her to sit on.

Thanks, and keep up the good work! What'd you charge me to do a ceramic on my G05 when it's home in NJ?
