    Default How can i get my car this shiney?

    Ok, i was just browsing the PH site and ended up lookin at this beemer. It looks super shiney and as far as i can tell from the advert it is just a standard factory colour!

    Has anyone on here achieved similar results?
    I would love my paintwork to look like this.
