Swissvax'ed Active Autowerke supercharged race prepped E92 M3

2008 BMW E92 M3 Coupe

Active Autowerke Supercharged and Track-prepped.

I had detailed this vehicle about a year or so ago. Since then it spent quite some time in Active Autowerke for the modifications.

This time around we did a full exterior decontamination, Single stage polish with Swissvax and protection with Swissvax Glacier (For white cars).


Here's how the car looked before:









Applying Seal Feed to the rubber trims. Protecton was also applied at this time



Three-bucket wash with Swissvax Car Bath



Here's how the exhaust tips looked before. They were treated with 1Z W99 and Swissvax Metal Polish at the end of the detail.





The wheels and brake calipers were subject to 3 track days within a month. We applied Sonax Full Effect, Cleaner Fluid Medium, and Swissvax Autobahn. The tires were treated with 1Z Rubber Care.





A rock chip that was touched up



Swirl marks on the hood





The engine bay



Applying more seal feed



We cleaned every single bodywork gap with 1Z Blitz and a swissvax Pneu and Detail brush





engine bay after cleaning





Losing the reflection




Here's how the exhaust tips looked after a proper cleansing with 1Z W99




Swissvax Glacier applied by hand



Finished! it was about 11:30PM, so pardon the dark images. We came Back about a week later to take some proper pictures















These pictures were taken a week later, after a wash with Swissvax Car Bath.



























That's all for that one. Thanks for looking!
