Default Obsidian 3IS picture thread!

I was just out enjoying the beautiful colorado weather today and found myself at garden of the gods park.
Decided to kick off a thread here.

Sorry the car is not Immaculate but best I could do

Merry Christmas Kevin! Car is looking very nice. How about some pictures of interior? Any mods there? I don't understand why RWD 3IS is rare in CO. I don't even see any trace of snow in your pictures and you actually get to see the sun! LOL. MN has more snow than last year at this time and it's been ~10 degrees colder!

Hello everyone I wanted to share a couple pictures with you of my car. I got it in June and I had the 22PLE glass coating applied to it in August and today I had my professional detailer come out to give it a polish and touch up a few little things and basically do what he calls a preventative maintenance detail. I was so pleased to know that he went over my car with his light that picks out swirls and he said my car was in excellent condition and that I did not have any swirls and that the methods that he taught me on how to wash my car using the waterless method have really worked because he was extremely surprised at how great my car looks!!

These are the pictures that he took of himself in the reflection of my car. He is looking in the hood of my car, look at the detail in these pictures I'm still blown away every time I look at them and how unbelievably clear and sharp my paint is and how reflective it is from that glass coating, it is amazing and this guy is outstanding and if you're in the Los Angeles area PM me and I will provide you his information.

Here's another picture after my detail. He's taking a picture of himself and that's the top of my garage and of my house and that reflection is from him taking a picture looking into the hood of my car.

My brothers dirty *** obsidian 350 awd. The first day he got his car a piece of metal flew off a truck in front of him and took out the passenger side headlight!! He couldn't care less and has been driving with it this way for weeks! Honestly, he is the perfect person to have obsidian because he isn't obsessively crazy about his cars as i am

Not that i am aware of but he may go there, I don't know you would have to ask him. His name is Joe and his company is Superior Shine. Check out his Facebook page. I have never seen cars look the way they do when he is done with them. He is outstanding!!!

Thank you. I will. One more question...how frequently should I get my car professionally detailed? Semiannually? Quarterly?
