new car clean

Hi, just a few pics of my recent purchase. my new bmw m135i in blue

Car was pretty dirty from the dealer and I've spent around 35 hours cleaning. polishing and applying Gyeon MOHS (first time using a coating too).

Last weekend I spent 2 days machine polishing in my garage, car fits in and can do one side at a time . had 2 stages, once with sonax max cut on purple scholls pad and then a 2nd stage with sonax 04/06 with a black spongy pad from scholls (cant remember names). a few deeper marks were left but without a paint gauge I wasn't chasing them. I then waxed with fusso for protection for the week.

This weekend I removed the fusso by polishing again (IPA wasn't getting it off). and then tooked the car in the garage to apply the mohs. Cant compare to any other coatings but it was easy to use and has given good results I think.

Exhaust tips were in bad condition, I've wet sanded them and then polished with autoglym metal polish. they have come up well but I think I'm going to replace them at some point.

Wheels have been waxed with collinite (going to apply a coating once I have a car jack trolley to take the wheels off) and tyres treated to megs endurance. glass has been cleaned and had h2go applied.

Inside has had the mats wet vac'd and hovered through out, wiped over with g101 on a cloth and interior detailer applied.

Looks really nice, cannot beat a process like that. Keep an eye on that speedo and make sure he buys you that beer

well it had to rain didn't it!!
gyeon mohs was last applied Saturday night around 8pm and gyeon cure was applied sunday around 2pm so that will hopefully be protecting whilst the mohs fully cures.

who doesn't love a beeding shot








blew the water here, its moves so easy.
