Arrow Paint Restoration Mini-Series

This black E39 M5 came to us after sitting outside for years. The owner purchased this M5 as a project and the first order of business was to correct the paint and restore the interior leather. So, it arrived at ESOTERIC needing a lot of love! Using non-invasive polishing methods that did NOT involve any sanding whatsoever, we were able to bring the paint back to near-perfect levels. Preservation is always at the top of our list when working on any vehicle, and this was no exception.

To top it off the paint received 2 layers of Kamikaze Miyabi and the trim was treated with Kamikaze ISM. For easy wheel cleaning GYEON Rim was used. The leather was treated for multiple days with several applications of Leatherique.


Part 1 of our E39 M5 restoration detail series tackles the subject of how to inspect a vehicle as we thoroughly explain our restoration process. The experience and expertise we have enable us to transform this E39 from an average example to a collector's item. This video reveals EXACTLY what goes into this. This is not 1 simple decision but countless decisions and methods involved. This series aims to educate detailers and our customers on how and why these processes are so thorough, time-consuming, and expensive.

In Part 2 of our series featuring a BMW E39 Restoration Detail, we discuss the details of how to identify paint defects. Swirls, holograms, scratches...we talk about how to identify them, and most importantly, why you need to know which is which to help you determine a course of action.

How to polish B-pillars for effective results! In part 3 of our BMW E39 M5 Restoration Detail project, we break down B-pillar polishing, and how to get the most out of it.
