Swissvax'ed Jet Black BMW E92 M3 Coupe

This BMW M3 was in dire need of some TLC!

I went ahead and gave this car an Initial Swissvax exterior package. No work was done to the interior.

The entire process took about 8 hours.

Here's how the car looked when it arrived:









































I started the cleansing stage with the wheels. The wheels got a nice coat of SONAX Full Effect, and the tires and wheel wells were cleaned with 1Z W99.




Following the wheels, I proceeded to clean the rest of the exterior. P21S TAW was used in all the body crevices, plastic mesh parts, and other hard-to-reach areas. I also Cleaned all the rubber seals using P21s TAW. The next step was washing the exterior using Swissvax Car Bath and a Swissvax Waschpudel.

After the wash, I proceeded to clay the entire exterior surface using Swissvax Paint Rubber, including the Paint, Glass, and Wheels. Following that, the entire vehicle was given a wipe down with Isopropyl alcohol to remove the clay residue.









Following the alcohol wipe down, I proceeded to apply Swissvax Seal Feed and Protection to all the Rubber and Plastic parts respectively. Next, I applied Cleaner Fluid Medium using the Porter Cable with a Swissvax Gloss pad (Black). This left the paintwork with an incredible shine that had to be seen to be believed; while attaining about 20-30% correction of the paintwork.

The paintwork was thereafter given a coat of Swissvax Blau-Weiss wax for BMW Paint Systems, and a final wipe down with Swissvax Quick Finish.

Door, Hood, and Trunk shuts finished with Swissvax Nano Express










Finished!

-#0000 Steel Wool

I recognize that license plate frame, that's my neighbor's car! It's time for mine to get the full treatment Dom.

His car and mine are almost identical, except I have the OEM splitters and spoiler. Might be you've seen him around midtown when you thought it was me.

Dom has had my car all day and it should be ready in about 15 minutes, can't wait to see her shine!

Got my car back last night and it looked amazing, but it wasn't until I saw it in the sunlight today that I realized what an amazing job Dom did. Really top-notch work, and definitely worth every penny. I'll be bringing her in for the full treatment every six months.

If you guys haven't had your car professionally detailed I highly suggest getting it done with Dom. He's a good local guy that will literally leave your car looking better than it did the day you bought it.

Thanks Dom.
