Swissvax'ed Jet Black BMW 750Li

Hey everyone,

This car is an early 2000's BMW 750Li. It boasts a V12 engine, active suspension control, and a super luxurious interior. It's personally one of my favorite BMW's. Well anyways, I have previously detailed this car a few months ago and it had already been messed up by the weekly car wash guys. I decided to do a two stage correction using Swissvax Cleaner Fluid Strong with a Swissvax Orange pad followed by Swissvax Cleaner Fluid Professional and finished it off with Swissvax Shield PTFE wax. I am starting to like Swissvax Shield over any of my other waxes. This wax gives a shine like no other and nothing sticks to it! Washes are so much easier and faster with it. I also did a full interior detail using leather masters products and 1Z cockpit classic (not cockpit premium). The engine was cleaned with 1Z Blitz and finished with 1Z Vinyl and rubber Protectant. The exterior plastics and rubber trims and seals were treated with Swissvax Protection and 1Z gummi Pflege. The wheels were treated with Swissvax Cleaner Fluid Medium and Swissvax Autobahn. Anyways on to the pictures.

you can clearly see how a dirty rag or wash mitt made these swirl marks.

oops i guess the weekly car wash guys this customer uses missed a spot!

more siwrls

some deeper scratches... thanks to the weekly washers...

dirty engine


Running low on Cleaner Fluid Professional! Time to get some more

Here's how the hood looked after a single pass with Cleaner Fluid Pro


I used Cleaner Fluid Strong with a swissvax orange pad to remove the deeper scratches.

Finished it off with Swissvax Shield

The Interior wood needed some work. I used Cleaner Fluid Medium and finished it with Swissvax Shield.


Thanks For looking! Like Me on Facebook @ ScheerSignatureDetailing
