After months and months of searching, I finally found an ISF. I ended up with an 08 Ultrasonic Blue with 30K miles. Surprisingly, I came across this sunroof delete model that still had navigation. When I picked it up, the paint was in OK shape but had a number of swirl marks and marring
Last weekend I spent 10 consecutive hours detailing it. Process consisted of washing, claying, re-washing, Meg's Dual Action Clearning Polish, ClearKote's Machine Glaze, Clearkote's Vanilla Moose, and topped with Clearkote's Carnuba Moose Wax. The wheels had a lot of brake dust caked on and I was surprised at how well Sonus worked to clean them up. It required a lot of scrubbing but I think they came out great.
Finally, I had a 3M Venturesheild clear bra installed on the front bumper, hood, door handles and mirrors. Other than that, my first mod has been a Recaro babyseat for my daughter.
The pics attached are the final result of the detailing.

Thanks guys- appreciate the comments. I'll take pictures of the baby seat tonight. The car did not come from the forum or CA. I bought it down in NC and had it shipped to VA.
As far as the wheels go, Sonus did work very well. I was impressed and used Meg's Hot Rims before that without success. It got a majority off when I did some scrubbing. For the stubborn brake dust that was really baked in, I was able to use Vanilla Moose to get it out.
