    You passed on one of the higher paying dealer preps.

    The idea behind accepting this price is volume. Any new/used car dealer account you're able to secure is ultimately going to become your bread...
  2. Re: 2007 Black BMW 335i Correction - TLC Auto Detail

    Lol, did I say surprised?? For Christ's sake it's called a question. Take a minute and re-read the last few comments. Wow, talk about blown out of proportion.
  3. Re: 2007 Black BMW 335i Correction - TLC Auto Detail

    If your technique needs some improvement then yes, there might be some marring left behind from the 95. The liklihood though is that there would be no marring left behind ........ with the Dakar (if...

    Meguiars Speed Cut (#95) with a yellow pad followed by the JetSeal 109 would be a great finish. Better still, follow the polish up with the CG Blacklight.

    I work on more BMWs than any other brand...
