Looks good. Is that a DIY job on the rear end?

Have you even seen a bad one?
Haha, No - I just thought the all-black with the wheels and tire shine looked especially sharp on this one!

I'm an avid detailer and I've spent a lot of time over the past few weeks trying to dial in the paint on my TLX. Prior to my ownership, it looked like this car had seen it's fair share of automated car washes so it had quite a bit of swirls and marring on the finish. I've tried to do some paint correction with Meguiars 105 and 205 to remove those defects. I'm pretty pleased with the results but I think there is still room for improvement...it looks great from about 10 feet away :)

I took this picture right after installing the new wheels. Mine needs a good buff and wax when it warms up. Though you can't tell in this pic, there are swirls galore from the dealer's "detail."

Do have a before picture? The "After" looks great.

I do. I have a picture from the dealership I bought it from in Denver from when I took delivery and a "during" picture when I got it home to Kansas City and gave it a foam wash :)

It just looked so good as I walked up to it in the parking lot! :)
