Love your work Raj.

Got a question for ya.

I've got a 991 Carrera S on order. I've heard the clear coat is pretty soft on these cars. I will put Xpel over the front but what kind of paint protection would you recommend?

Raj brilliant work mate - but as this is an M3 forum I think you really need more M3s to highlight your artistry - and not just the run of the mill colours -something a little more unusual - perhaps something like sparkling graphite metallic - now if only there was a guy who had one, lived close bye to you and who, purely in the pursuit of bettering your business,would be willing to let you do your magic for some before & after shots ...mmm...

Thanks Matt & congrats on the new car!
I'll shoot you a PM to gather some more information on it and can assess from there

Lots of people love those 2 products. Yes, they are grey, but really depends on circumstances. Before pushing a product, I find out background information, assess the type of car, colour, etc and then I can recommend.
Send me your number, I'm happy to have a chat if you need advice.

The grey e92 M3 is mine. Thanks Raj for squeezing me in.

Unfortunately I'm getting it cleaned up for sale, a very regretful sale. I'm heading to Hong Kong for work for at least 2 years. Thought about storing the car but I'm not sure how long I'll be gone. This combined with stories from the BMW SA that rats would eat the wiring and rust would form in cylinder heads.

I'll post the link to the carsales ad once I get it online - please pass it around if you know of someone looking. The car has been very well looked after, always kept clean and serviced.

It will be a sad day when someone drives it away from me...

Car: 2003 BMW E60 530i

Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction & Interior Cleaning with Leather Conditioner

Comments:
- Mature owner simply required a once over on the entire car
- Although the car was one of the rougher examples with hazed lights (owner did not opt for headlight restoration) we managed to rejuvinate the paintwork and provide some much needed protection for the otherwise tired Space Grey paintwork.
- Although not every single defect was removed, the aim was to decontaminate and restore lost gloss and provide ease for maintenance washing.
- Another satisfied owner and another grey car for March 2014!

Car: 2011 BMW E92 M3

Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction & Interior clean with Leather Condition

Comments:
- Grey cars hide dirt well, and this was no exception. Clay removed a lot of the contaminants & really brought out the true colour of this M3.
- Being prepared for sale, the owner requested a single stage polish that really freshened up the otherwise dull paintwork.
- Exhaust tips were covered in carbon build up
- Interior seats were tidy but as usual required rejuvenation to bring out oils/dirt build up and restore the factory matte finish.
- Another happy owner, who decided to keep the car after seeing the car post-detail!

2008 Maserati GranTurismo - The Works!

Following the Showcase thread posted previously, here's some of the hard work that went into the car...


Car: 2008 Maserati GranTurismo

Service: Stage 2 Paint Correction, Interior Clean + Leather Condition, Engine Bay Detail

Comments:
- The owner was looking to get more out of the Grigio Granito paintwork which clearly was lacking lustre and gloss
- After a comprehensive decontamination process, the swirls, holograms and some medium scratches that required wet sanding were corrected, revealing the depth, metallic flake and true gloss that this Italian classic should show!
- Engine bay received a thorough clean and was treated dressed with Aerospace for a fresh look
- The recently painted gloss black wheels and red calipers also benefited from a chemical decontamination.
- Some polish/wax marks on the rubber seals from pre delivery were also removed
- The red leather interior although fairly clean was showing age with unwanted shiny sections and various marks - these were restored and a factory matte sheen was seen thereafter
- Needless to say, another happy owner and future detailing enthusiast

Car: 2014 Audi SQ5

Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction & New Car Paint Protection

Comments:
- Although this car was only a couple of weeks old, it suffered from various swirls scuffs and contamination build up
- Estoril Blue paintwork was quickly corrected and Nanolex Ultra added to both paintwork, calipers and wheels
- Not the best photos as the weather was rather average but tried to capture the defects as best as possible for yet another happy owner

2012 Bmw F10 M5

Car: 2012 BMW F10 M5

Service: Stage 2 Paint Correction & Interior clean with leather condition

Comments:
- What a brilliant car - the BMW F10 M5. Although the BSM gloss was immense already, the paintwork suffered from swirls and holograms that really let the car down.
- The PPF film also suffered from bad swirls & scuffs which were corrected as well. Unfortunately, it was too late to correct pitting/etching marks in the PPF.
- Interior was above average but just required a quick once over to renew the factory fresh look.
- A great result for both us and the lucky owner of this beast!

Car: 2010 BMW 125i

Service: Stage 2 Paint Correction

Comments:
- This car was covered in swirls, scuffs and even some deeper scratches
- Unfortunately, these imperfections can hide the true colour of the black sapphire metallic and the paintwork will lack lustre and depth. This case was no exception.
- Some deeper imperfections remained but overall a great result and another satisfied owner

2005 BMW E46 325ci M Sport

Car: 2005 BMW E46 325ci M Sport

Service: Stage 2 Paint Correction

Comments:
- Although the paintwork wasn't too contaminated, there were obvious imperfections including medium to heavy swirls and various holograms (bodyshops in the past).
- The paintwork also lacked lustre and depth that should really be shown from Silver Grey Metallic.
- Unfortunately, the job was finished at night so we didn't have the best complete after photos. However, we managed to take some photos when the paintwork was corrected (prior to any waxes and sealants being applied) so you can see the clear/naked results of the correction.
- Minor detailing and finishing was completed after photography.
- Gloss, clarity and depth were all restored to this fantastic luminous SGM paintwork and yet again, another very happy owner

Car: 2014 Mercedes Benz CLA200

Service: Debadge & Deluxe Wash with WashCoat

Comments:
- Brand new car with under 1,000km road trip kilometres from Canberra
- Road grime, bug splatter and the usual debris
- CLA200 badges removed to give the car a sleeker, cleaner look
- WashCoat ensured ample protection and a shine to match the Mountain Grey depth!

Car: 2002 BMW E46 M3

Service: Stage 2 Paint Correction

Comments:
- Although a reasonably clean car, there were obviously swirls and minor blemishes that required attention
- Additional minor detailing and defect removal meant that this car present as new with a deeper shine and more metallic flake evident!
- Once again, a very happy owner
