Default DetailersDomain.com - Much needed paint correction on this BMW M5 e39

A great customer came to us with his "NEW" to him BMW M5 e39 - it was mechanically in great condition and to the best of his knowledge at pick up was "Detailed". After a couple of washes he was a bit surprised to see how his "NEW" car looked. He called us up and we were brought on to fix all the dealers mistakes.

Subject: BMW M5
Requirement: Customer requested to fix his paint on his new to him M5. Glaze when used under the wrong hands is just not good.

Exhaust tips were cleaned up




We always find more dirt and grime on tires even after hitting them with a brush and apc.... what we do is hit them up with Stoner's Tarminator and a MF Towel, take a look at what we were able to pull off.



Take a look at the transformation in our 50/50 shots. - We got our results using the Rupes Bigfoot LHR21, Rupes Bigfoot LHR15, Rupes Bigfoot LHR75, Menzerna FG400 and Sonax Nano Polish, our last step wash Auto Finesse Desire.

No specific order - random shots of the process.








Afters






















Enjoy!
