Default Good, but not great

Well, had my first experience with the clay bar because I got spray paint mist on the car. Took most of it off but without spending the proper time I cant complain. I so wish I had a house with a driveway and garage to work on my car. Then it would have been done right.
So a wash at a car wash, spray down at a do it yourself place, clay bar there, then wash again, then cleaner wax. So here she is with this mileage....

You must be really picky! :P Looks really good to me.

Some of the reflections of the pavement made it look like your paint is chipping, especially the side shots. I had to do a double take.

I also like that 40th color. Hey....When you drive after applying the dire dressing, do you get tire dressing spray all over your car? I do....I get little grease spots..they wipe off, but annoying.

The rims do set the car off very nicely. You should be proud to own such a beautful car.
