My new car: 335D M-Sport in Sparkling Graphite

BMW 335D M-Sport

I've had this for about 3 weeks now but today was my first chance to give it a good polish and wax. This was traded in for my 57 plate 520. I've been waiting on one coming up with the right spec for a while now and here it is

It's being used tomorrow for a wedding; taking the Bridesmaids to the venue, so I wanted it spotless.

I clayed it 2 weeks ago and sealed with Jeff's and a coat of Z Concours so today it was a strip back, UDM'd, sealed and waxed.
It's an 09 plate with 4.5k on the clock and only 12 weeks old (ex BMW managers car), but there were a few scratches and etchings to sort out.
I've no before pics and these one's were taken in the garage after a final coat of Concours over 915, finished with some Dodo RM to get a good wet finish.
Very pleased with the results and can't wait to pull her out in the daylight

Thanks for looking, Gary

Lovely looking car. Interesting that you used Red Mist to give a wet look, post's I have read recently say the concours leaves a very "wet" look. Did you not find this?

I only ask as I am thinking of getting some concours for me collection

I'm just trying a few combinations to get the depth I want, if I've got time in the morning, I'm considering some BOS before the wedding
To be honest, I didn't really find the RM has enhanced the Concours, but I've still to see it in daylight yet.

Looks amazing and the Coral Red leather is stunning. Can't believe the coupe still comes with the old iDrive controller.
