Pic Request - Freshly Detailed TIAG

Could someone post pics of a freshly waxed Titanium Silver e46? I want to see how shiny/reflective the paint can be made to set a goal for myself. Please let me know what products were used, too. Thanks in advance

Not TIAG, but steel grey.

It's all in the prep.

NXT Wash
Clay
NXT Wash
Poorboys SSR2.5 By PC with Orange pad
Poorboys SSR1 By PC with White pad
S100 Shine Ehancing Cleanser By PC with White pad
S100 Wax by hand

Not my favorite for durability, but gives a nice wet look.
