Daniel is back for some more Opti! After doing his M3 a few months ago, his new baby was born, and so it called for a new baby-mobile. In today is their new Highlander family car. Loving the lines of the new Toyota line!

Word of mouth has always been the only form advertisement. In today is Bradon’s new daily GTI, which got the royal CS2 Titanium treatment. The amount of gloss on this thing is INSANE!

It’s kind of nice seeing a Mini that is not red around here. In today is Adam’s new JCW coop. He’s had a few cars in Australia coated in the past, so he is familiar with how well it performs. We went with the hole shebang today; paint, trims, lights, chrome, wheel faces, leathers, carpets. Thanks Adam!

I still wonder how dealerships churn out cars in less than immaculate conditions. In today is Alan’s few hundred-mile old Golf R, which ended up taking quite a bit more time than I anticipated to spend on it – but it’s ok. There’s that saying that goes something like … to underpromise and overdeliver. It usually works out in the end. Thanks for the referral Eugene!

Haven’t had to bust out the MF cutting pad in a while! In today is Ashwin’s new (used) 335i, which wasn’t in the best condition, but it did leave today in probably the best condition that it could get to without having to wet sand the paint. We got pretty much all of the swirls out; but what still remained were a handful of RIDS, dings, and some touch up paint from the previous owner. It is far from perfect, but at least it is presentable now, and more importantly, it is protected for the many years of ownership to come.
