Swissvax'ed: Hartge/DINAN 4.6L Interlagos Blue E92 M3

Wow... What a car...

2008 BMW E92 M3 Interlagos Blue Dinan 4.6L, Hartge body

Here's how she looked before











Dirty exhaust tips...









Bugs




The owner never really cleaned the wheel barrel. It was incredibly caked with brake dust, and took 3 cleanings with SONAX Full Effect to get clean.







Road Grime accumulated on side skirts...





These carbon-fiber peices were becoming faded due to oxidation





The rubber seals were very dry and in need of Swissvax Seal Feed






Dirty door jambs...





Exhaust residue + dirt buildup on trunklid. Taken care of by P21s TAW and Cleaner Fluid



More residue build up in the crevices



Hartge sticker






The plastic mesh inserts were very dry and dull. Remedied with Swissvax Protecton after a thorough cleansing with P21s TAW.




Onto the engine bay... a piece of art on it's own... We cleaned the entire engine bay using P21s TAW and 1Z Blitz, and later protected the components with Swissvax Nano Express, Seal Feed,and Protecton.















I started with first cleaning the engine bay before washing the exterior



Agitating 1Z Blitz



SONAX Full Effect in action





Cleaning all the hard-to-get areas







Soaking the entire rear end in P21s TAW to loosen the exhaust residue







A little surprise underneath the license plate...



Agitating P21s TAW on the license plate to remove the exhaust residue





1Z W99 on the exhaust tips and canister



Here's how the clay bar looked!



Applying Swissvax Autobahn to the wheels



Applying Swissvax Protecton



Exhaust tips before / after









Finished















































That's all for that one! Thanks For Looking!!!!!

I realize this thread is a over a year old, but I am in the market to do something like this myself to my 2008 Jerez. What did this 7 hour job cost? Who did the work? Awesome restoration, the car looks great!

PM the original poster (ScheerSpeed). That's who did the work - I'm sure he'd be happy to quote you.
