Arrow CleanDetail - BMW Alpina B3 Enhancement & Ceramic Protection


Yorkshire Detailing & Ceramic Protection Specialist
Website: www.mobile-detailing.co.uk | Call: 01302 354798 | Email: info@cleandetail.com

Today’s Treatments: Enhancement detail, inc front end Stone guard wrap, Engine Detail, Piano trim correction & Ceramic Paint Protection Detail



Here we have a 2011 BMW Alpina B3 BiTurbo Coupe. In an amazing blue! seen a few b3's but not in this colour. This little Alpina has something a little different. You may think the front has orange peel, but its actually a full front end wrap from Paint Shield, as well as sills & wing mirrors. All of which were in need of a little more gloss then protection.

Here she is on arrival:





Few bits of wax & polish here and there.















Still has Delivery Wax left over in places from where Wax Oil has been sprayed into panels.



So First job, engine bay!



Using low pressure, Maxolen engine cleaner and a Swissvax Brush to get to the little areas.

Next, Wheels. Today’s tester product:










Viskan Brush for the arches as well as Autosmart G101.

It was a nice warm day today. But, i feel sorry for the mobile guys as machine polishing, washing, claying in hot weather is a pain! So, i got some temp readings before she was washed.

Side away from sun:


Direct Light:


So, back to washing. It was Pre-rinsed with Valetpro Citrus Pre-wash then rinsed again.



2 Buckets set up, testing another Autobrite product. A new gloss shampoo



Foamed with Valetpro PH foam:



Due to the timescale to get all the tasks done, There is little photos of the enhancement.

But, indicators removed to give a good clean up.







Everything masked and enhancement cracking on:


50/50 on front Paint Shield:


Next job, Gloss trim!


Once happy with the machine finish. I was time to clean other areas before the Ceramic was Applied:











Once Ceramic was applied, the engine was finished and all the bits we re-added to the car.



Next job was the piano trim on the inside, then ceramic seal it for added scratch protection. Once i was satisfied with the finish. Meguiars Endurance was used on the tyres for added protection.

Here is the finished product:
























Another Alpina Protected by CleanDetail
