BMW M3 Detailing

Hello Everyone,

I was contacted by a client to see if I could solve his problem for car maintenance, he was looking for a low maintenance solution for his "new to him" M3 Sedan. I recommended the installation of Opti Coat Pro (Professional version of the regular Opti-Coat, we are a certified installer) for his Jerez Black M3, after reading up on it he also decided it was the best route for him.

Here are the before pictures:





I'd have to do something about these swirls.





During:

I started by washing the wheels, wheel wells and rims, all that brown stuff you see if from silicons in cheap tire dressing. If don't want that then use a water based tire dressing.






Washing



Claying, a normal amount of contaminants

I then found out that Meg's MF pad with D300 and Green B&S pad with HD Polish was my best bet

Here is half the front fender done.



Here I polished the swirls away from the headlights





Here we can see some sanding marks

Thank you for the compliments, yes this detail was done sometime in August and I'm sure we're all missing it now.

Looks awesome! Night and day difference by the looks of it. It's good to know good detailers around the GTA.
