Swissvax'ed LeMans Blue BMW DINAN E93 M3

This car was about 6 months old, and the owner had not yet had it professionally detailed because the car was in the process of being modified and he wanted it to look best once all the mechanical work was done.

The car had a few small scratches which were taken care of without a problem, and a small scrape on the rear bumper that i touched up with factory BMW touch-up paint.

This car got a Surface Cleansing and Protection package using Swissvax Products along with a Full Interior Detail also with Swissvax Products.

Paint:
-SV car bath
-SV Cleaner Fluid Strong w/ Yellow 3.5 inch pad (for small scratches)
-SV Cleaner Fluid Professional w/black SV pad (to finish scratch repair)
-SV Cleaner Fluid Regular
-SV Blau Weiss BMW Wax
-SV Engine (for exhaust stains)

Interior
-SV Leather Cleaner
-1Z Cockpit
-SV Protecton Matt
-SV Leather Milk
-1Z Glass Cleaner

Engine:
-SV Engine
-SV Protecton
-SV Cleaner Fluid Medium (Carbon Intake)
-SV Shield Wax with PTFE (Carbon Intake)

Rubber Seals:
-SV Seal Feed

Exterior Plastic/Vinyl
-SV Protecton

Wheels:
-SONAX Full Effect
-1Z Industrial Cleaner
-SV Cleaner Fluid Medium
-SV Autobahn
-1Z Rubber Care


The car had not been washed in two weeks...








The rubber seals were full of old wax.



























The Engine Before










A nice soak in SONAX Full Effect Wheel Cleaner



A few minutes later...




Here's a scratch that the owner tried to repair with some compound by hand, however you can see this only made the situation worse. the scratch was too deep to remove safely, however it was reduced signifigantly.



After...


This scrape required touch-up paint.





The Result of 8 hours of work...











































Thats all for that one. Thanks for looking!

My car guys yay!!

Dominic did a great job detailing the car I felt very comfortable because he is not only a car enthusiast but owns a E90 M3 himself and cares for it. I would highly recommend his services to anyone local to the area.

It is just vinyl on the emblem... Where did you get the actual emblem from and do they come in matte or gloss only?

Funny thing is I wash it at least every 2 weeks. I just park outside for work and it gets so damn dirty. That and having a catless exhaust does not help much.

Great job! The Swissvax Blau Weiss creates a gorgeous depth and wetness.

How's the longevity? Does it need to be reapplied every other wash or can you get a few months out of an application?

Thanks.
