Did some Spring Cleaning

I removed all my Carbon Fiber parts so i could polish them and give it a brand new shine. Also i removed my black tail light covers to be repainted black due to paint cracks. I added the a new toy MCD CF spoiler and i can tell fitment is on point with this spoiler and also i like it because it is flush with my roof spoiler. Just waiting for the AZN GB headlights to come in so i can see what will it look like on my car. Oh yeah i repainted the grille and chrome covers for the fog lights and removed the yellow lamin-x.

You did a great job I really like the black painted chrome for the fogs. It really blends nicely.

I was using a nikon SLR my car is actually dusty from Pollen. I hate this season especially with a black car you can see yellow everywhere and also if I wash the car an hour later I see yellow pollen.

Your car can't be as dirty as mine since I park outside.

I didn't really mean to take away from your car. I just noticed that.
And besides, you call that dirty? Man, you should drive in Louisiana for a while and see the pollen down here. Hell, I'm bald and people think I'm blonde

Back to your car, dude, it looks really awesome and I am jealous

Amazing car pare. Black cars are the best after a good detail for the first 5 minutes.... Have you tried other polish/wax products?

Few thing are better than drooling over a nice looking Benz that has a proud owner. Keep 'em coming.

I tried a lot of other brands. It started when I had my black Audi, I was in a constant hunt for something the would last. Especially in the heat most waxes and polishes will not stand a chance, even at 80deg weather the surface of the car could be at 100deg. Most waxes at this point becomes obsolete. I just make sure the surface prep is the one I spend most of my time on. Claying and cutting, then a good paint sealant with a polish/wax on top.

Since you like Mequiars, have your tried their NXT 2.0 polish&wax. It gives black/dark colored cars a nice shine and depth.

clean refresh bro.... What'd u use to repaint the tail trims? also, did you have to reappy 3M tape or did you just use the old stuff?

I got the tail trims but the stock tape is kinda loose in one corner and looks kinda sketch with light bleed at night.... thinking about reapplying with fresh 3M....

I only ask about other polishes, because in your pictures the rear side shot of the spoiler.. I see some webbing still, but don't get me wrong... great job on the cleaning and the modding of the car.
