Looks awesome Russ! Not sure about the supsected hologramming though, looks perfect to me!

Almost a gold looking fleck in the paint? Amazing stuff!

That paint looked very tricky being soft (unusual for BMW), good results and hats off for sticking at it and finding a good, safe combination!

Thanks Chris. A lot of people say BMW is 'hard' but it's certainly not always the case!!

BOS is durable for 2-3 months I'd say, so not the best but certainly one of the better looking waxes. This car is a weekend toy and never comes out in the wet so I agreed with the owner to go for looks over functional durability.

Thanks

I can see the small reflections so perhaps not the best pic to have selected but they are definitely that - reflections!

Thanks all!!

Russ.

Hello Russ,

Firstly a massive thank you for doing my car - I know you were not feeling too well, so credit to you for going ahead anyway.

Well, what can I say - I thought I was looking at a different car when I first saw it. You have done a truly amazing job, and my little Z3 looks like new and has turned out far better than I thought it could ever look.

The clarity and depth of shine is amazing, and I can now actually see the flake in the paint pop out. I think I better start saving up for a pot of the Swissvax!

Your write up, as ever, is great & it's awesome to see your own car shown on-line going through your transformation.

I am going to the Zfest at the Silverstone Classic in 3 weeks time, so I will be singing your praises to other Z3 owners.

Many thanks again from a VERY VERY satisfied customer!

Richard,

Thank you for the very kind words - massively appreciated indeed. I think I need a holiday as my immune system isn't the best at the moment!

Thanks again for choosing me and I'm glad you were pleased. I hope it stayed dry and clean for your journey home.

Thanks again,
Russ.

Russ, you know what they say...all work & no play! All credit to you though, there are not many people around prepared to work a full time job and then all weekend as well.

Yes, got home in the dry thanks & 99% clean bar the odd Bug splat. Managed to stop off in the grounds of the Chateaux Impney on the way home for a few sneaky photos myself.

What was the other (slightly cheaper) wax option you mentioned?

Swissvax Onyx is the cheaper option, which offers very similar looks but isn't quite as durable:

I look forward to seeing your pictures

Thanks again,
