    got a 2001 330 in black and the paint looks quite dull. i cleaned it and used the meguires 3 step paint cleaner, polish and wax and it come up really good, but the went dull again.

    there is also a small patch on the rear quarter which is a concentrated patch of scratches, almost like a peice of sandpaper got rubbed on it quickly.

    i was looking at having the paint reconditioned and wondered if anyone has had it done and what the results were like? any photos??

    Here you go, done myself. with dark colours you have to stay on top of them. wash mine once a week and polish it at the same time.
