Well, a black BMW looks d*mned good when freshly Zymolled doesn't it? I met
with a fellow BMW enthusiast on Saturday, and his black-on-black freshly
Zymolled '95 325i looked fantastic.
I first used the Canadian Tire Zymol (which apparently is the inferior
Turtle Wax made stuff) on my previous '94 320i (Mauritius-read dark-blue),
and it had been the best wax used to date. But for my new '96 328i, I
decided to splurge for the "real thing", Zymol Creame wax plus HD cleanse.
I gave her the full HD plus Creame wax treatment, and d*mmit, the Arctic
Silver with body couloured bumpers and rockers looked great. I've had tons
of compliments on my car, with one total stranger, a Saab 9000 driver, going
out of his way to walk over to me and congratulate me on how sharp a car I
had. If you try the full treatment (in your case, Carbon, not Creame, as
you have a black car) you will be truly impressed. I find it actually looks
better after the first wash post-Zymol. I also found out, this weekend,
after driving on the 401 and accumulating about 760,000 bugs on the nose of
my beloved, how much easier it makes bug removal. Just wash and wipe off.
BTW, get the Zymol kit from Bavarian Autosport, complete with their car
washing formula. Their car wash is also awesome, much less inclined to make
spots. Great product.
