get some prima amigo glaze which will make it look darker and bring out the metallic flake if you have any and fill swirls, very light scratches. 2 layers will be good and i apply it with a microfibre applicator like these https://www.prestigecarcareshop.com/...or-pads-2-pack
https://shop.autofinesse.co.uk/polish-pads
then i use blackfire black ice which is for dark cars and makes it look deep and stunning and also doesnt mute the flake.
a small pot will last you a long time and its well worth the price

when i dry the car i use the feks professor plush drying towel which is awesome and blackfire midnight sun instant detailer as a drying aid to help with water spots and give a few weeks protection and gloss

http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...ler-cat14.html you can also use it on external glass aswel as you dry

Get your wash routine sorted first without looking at expensive waxes
As previously owning black cars,3 bucket wash with grit guards after a good pre wash or snow foam
Any marring swirls etc show up on black the worst
Get a decent ph neutral pure shampoo like gyeon odk adams or dodo juice and a decent wash pad
Wold be where I would be spending my money

Thank you guys, I have searched for the following items
I can't believe it gets so expensive and that's without choosing some of the products you guys mentioned( I wonder how much you spend per year on the car with all these products)?

Let me know what you think of my cart, is it there anything I should add/substitute?

ps: the sandpaper so to remove some scratches on my car.

as for the scratches post some pics either they'll polish out or can be reduced and disguised or need to be touched up and smoothed but don't just let rip with wet & dry

The good news is BMW black is hard and a lot harder to swirl than other manufacturers

As others have said key is touching it as little as you can and a careful wash technique rather than expensive products.
My own black Macan is 3 months old and I seriously wash it every 2-3 weeks, i find a weekly snow foam is enough to keep the dust at bay.

I guess you're right guys. I'm gonna go with a few things first. just checked the order on this site about how to wash the car

So I'm gonna
1)spray tar remover
2) shampoo the car
3) clay it (it's one clay enough for the full car? are clays reusable or do I have to buy new every time?)
4)polish
5)wax

I personally would be doing it slightly different.

1- pre wash
2- rinse
3- wash
4- rinse
5- iron remover
6- rinse
7- tar remover
8- rinse
9- clay
10- wash
11- dry
12- polish
13- wipe down
14- wax (twice)
