Kirill... Your car looks beautiful! Damn... You are in IL.

Does someone clean my car? I will pay!! [:D]
Thanks!. You can ask same question on autopia.org that's the place where guys who do it for a living hand out. Expect to pay around 150$ for a full detail or 500$ if you want me to do it ;)

RE: How to take care of your black car

Which Klasse product are you using? I am currently using Griots Garage Polish and Wax, but it is really expensive, so I would like to try something else. I am going to be applying and removing with an orbital buffer as well.

Thanks,

Kevin

RE: How to take care of your black car

Most of my cars are black and the rest are all in dark colours. I was them whenever they are dirty and wax/polish them every weekend (you need to with the dusty conditions here). I use Autoglym. Below is an example of my E280 the day afer it was polished.
