DetailMyCar - BMW 530d M-Sport F11 - Enhancement

We had this BMW dropped off for 3 days to try and get the paint back to as good as new where ever possible so that was exactly what we did.

As it arrived


The car went through the deep cleaning process with everything from citrus pre-wash, hand wash, de-tar, fallout remove and claying finally.

Wheels cleaned




Paintwork looking very sad and sorry for itself


After 2 hits of Sonax Perfect finish and a Hex Logic Orange




More before and afters




















All finished off with two coats of FK 1000p to give good durability through winter

Thanks! It's a bit of a miracle polish at times, doesn't work on every paint type but now and then it will really surprise you - especially with doing two sets on a typically hard finish it can work wonders with the right pads

Great work, certainly looks the way it should now. Big old bus to work around as well. Sore arms after that?

A good friend of mine had a bit of a contest with one of these going down the M602. My mate knew he had more power in stock but wouldn't use it .It was 2.30 AM motorway was empty . Anyway they got to about 130 or so and the other BMW dropped back a few car lengths then put its blues and twos on . My mate honestly admitting to filling his pants at this point . He's sat in the back of the patrol car and the officer is telling him where his driving is deficient .Then lets him go

BACK ON TOPIC . Your getting through the work mate aren't you .The owner must have been over the moon with the results of your hard graft
