Secret is in the process and products!!

Invest in some really good terry cloth towels from Fieldcrest. The Charisma is the best you can get! They are about $20 a piece for a bath towel. Also get a bunch of micro fiber towels to use for quick detailing, drying, etc. Wal Mart carries the Nicsand brand and you can get 2 for about $4. Always use a quality car wash soap and a terry cloth wash mit. NO SPONGES!!!! They just trap the dirt and scratch. Rinse the mit frequently!

I use to use a CA water blade, but have lately noticed some small hair line scratches that I think were caused by it, so it's temporarily retired. I've got 2 black BMWs and work VERY hard to keep them perfect. Mine is driven 25k a year and is a '98, but you would never know. i learned everything that I know about pampering paint on http://www.autopia-carcare.com/ A ton of good info and some real fanatics. Here's a shot of my daily driver.
