What do you use to soap up like that?

That looks like the work of a soap cannon (yes @toy4x ?). They connect to your pressure washer and "atomize" the soap so its in micro foam like texture. Its a neat set up.

^Correct....
@soopa76

I actually cheat.... my detailer uses the Mtm hydro foam canon connected to a power washer. That power washer is connected to a tank of RO water so that even if the water somehow dries on the car... it leaves absolutely no water spots.

My detailer friend comes to the house and washes my car once a week. I've never once washed or waxed my own car since I bought it. He does an outstanding job and for what he charges me... I'll just keep letting him do it. In close to 2 years of owning this car, I still don't have any swirl marks. He looks after my paint and interior better than me.

Damn @toy4x that is one awesome mobile detailing rig your man has. An RO machine too?!? Wow!

After I did my paint correction project on my wagon, I became ultra nervous about putting swirls back into the paint. It took a LOT of work to fix it and I'd hate to have to do it over.

Your car looks great!

(That vinyl tint on the lights, however...not my cup of tea.)

Hopefully, some new owner is driving the wheels off her right now! They got a good one.
