Question

is a white car harder to detail then a black car?

i know black is hard but you can see whats going on with the black.

i have a white E63 that stays outside and has to be pretty beat up but its hard to see the bad stuff once she is clean any help?

White is not a difficult color to get shiny. Here is a picture of my 1992 Stealth that was taken in 2001. That would be about 9 years of daily driving for that car and it still looks pretty good. This car was detailed using Zymol products. I wasn't aware of Adams at that time. Unfortunately, I don't have the Stealth any longer (selling it was a bad decision) but that is another story.

In my opinion they both have their own unique challenges. While black will show every little swirl, scratch, and imperfection white has a tendency to show ever little surface contaminant. What I will say is it is much harder to do white justice with a full detail.... thats not to say that white doesn't look good when its clean, its just that black almost always looks amazing after a buff and wax b/c you can see depth in the paint where as white will tend to look really shiney, but its hard to capture depth in a white finish.

White is tough to remove waxes or get all the swirls out because its so **** hard to see them! I have had good luck simply doing my normal routine that I've practiced on darker vehicles.
