2010 E92 M3 Edition - Monte Carlo Blue

Hi Guys, new to the forum here. Just thought I'd take a look around after seeing Eclipsis' thread http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=448627 over on another forum I'm on and I thought I have some pics these guys will appreciate my fellow M3 lovers

This is part of a write up I done for a good friends new M3 Edition back in January. You can see the Full Detail thread at the link below, this is just the after shots for your viewing pleasure

Hope you enjoy the after shots, this has to be one of my favourite cars I’ve detailed to date. It was just such a stunning Colour to work on, and overall was as close to perfection as is reasonably possible in my opinion.
























As you can see above, this was about the only noticeable blemish on the car after the correction was finished. I can honestly say this car was as close as it gets from factory to paintwork perfection.

Unlike the previous M3 model the E46, you can see that the E92 really needs it's 'power bulge' on the bonnet.



Engine bay was treated with 303 Aerospace Protectant


















Hope you enjoyed the write up, it was another monster as you can see. But I thoroughly enjoyed working on this one and thought it was worth sharing.

Thanks

Tim

Looking good! Did you use a gloss shine at the end like Z8 or Z6?

Probably my fav M3 ever. Black OEM wheels and MCB is the ultimate combo.

I dunno why but your wheels seem to be so much bigger than 19's... They really look like after market 20's...

Beautiful.
