Car: 2009 BMW E92 335i

Service: 2-3 stage paint correction; Interior clean and leather condition; Engine bay detail

Comments:
- After spending some time in a paintshop, deep holograms and swirls were added to the paintwork.
- Holograms and swirls really mask the BLACK colour of the car, but clarity & depth needs to be restored to appreciate the true colour.
- Various marks and stains on the interior.
- The photos don't do the results justice, but again, another happy owner

Car: 2012 Mercedes Benz ML63 AMG

Service: Stage 1 Exterior Paint Correction; Interior & Leather Condition

Comments:
- Diamond white paintwork was good but lacked lustre and depth
- Interior was okay but leather needed a good clean and condition to remove any grease from the natural leather
- Wheels and Calipers also detailed to bring contrast to the car
- Reflection and gloss were restored to the exterior, and an "as new" finish on the interior.
- With all the various details - pearl white paint, gloss red calipers, chrome highlights this car looks menacing on the road!

Few Images:

F30 328i - Mineral Grey - Exterior & Interior

Car: 2013 BMW F30 328i Sport

Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction & Hard Body, Interior & Leather condition

Comments:
- This car was coated in February 2013 and returned back to us after 12 months for an annual detail and reapplication of Nanosealant.
- Generally in great condition, the car arrived in a dirty state both inside and out.
- The initial beading was not too bad but the car needed decontamination to reveal its depth and emphasize metallic flake
- Interior was rejuvinated as well and interior panels, surfaces and leather were all restored back to a factory finish
- The car was used as a wedding car the next day and apparently was the talk of the town!

Few pictures:

Beading before we started - 12 month old HardBody on daily driven vehicle:

That is almost criminal. Stunning restoration job i must say!!

But it's a real shame.(from new buyers point of view) Clearly this car has been owned by some douche who treats it like crap and have really poorly maintained it. Now its probably going to get flogged off as "Enthusiast owner, extremely well cared for, washed every weekend etc." to unsuspecting new owner!

Your work is top notch! I'll be recommending you to friends in perth.

Car: BMW E93 M3

Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction

Comments:
- This car was given the works, including a 3 stage paint correction back in December 2012.
- The owner was after a "once over" on the exterior
- Unfortunately due to some poor washing techniques, there were some harsher scratches and a fair few swirls all over the car, so the car really needed 2-3 stages to address all paint defects.
- The paintwork was fairly clean and basic claying showed no serious contamination.
- Correction and heavy reduction refreshed the paintwork while really enhancing the gloss, making the Jerez Black (blue pearl) really pop!
- Another happy owner and a lovely car!

Car: 2013 BMW X3 20d

Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction, Engine Bay Clean, Scratch reduction & Hard Body

Comments:
- Car was originally protected when purchased new in January 2013.
- After 13 months and 30,000km, the car still looked better than most new cars - credit to the owner who has fastidiously maintained the car in the interim.
- Country driving saw a dirty engine bay and smearing front windscreen. The engine bay was thoroughly cleaned but not dressed as we wanted to maintain a crispy clean look.
- The front windscreen was machine polished then treated with a rain repellent
- Unfortunately the car had been keyed on the driver's side, leaving a deep scratch that could not be completely removed safely, so an intense reduction meant that it was eventually barely noticeable.
- Another happy owner and a fantastic result all round

Before:






After:

Car: 2007 BMW E92 M3

Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction, Interior Clean & Leather Treatment, Engine Bay Detail

Comments:
- This low km car arrived looking fairly straight, but the Silverstone paintwork lacked gloss and depth. The car had never been properly detailed in 7 years!
- Few marks and heavy contamination all over paintwork
- Various make-up stains all over the interior - black had turned white and leather was shiny from lack of cleaning/conditioning.
- Exhaust tips had heavily built up carbon
- Black grilles and plastics also lifeless after not being treated for a long time
- Engine bay also heavily cleaned and various areas underneath the bonnet were hand polished to achieve clarity
- Basically we wanted to bring this car up to the same level as it was when the owner picked up the car brand new in 2007
- The results really speak for themselves - Enjoy the photos
