BMW M140i Auto Finesse Protection Detail - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

I thought it would be good to show one of these jobs.

This lovely M140i is 10 months old. The owner had only washed the car a couple of times since picking it up - which played in the car's favor - and brought it in to see what needed to be done to get the car looking fresh and protected.
After being washed and decontaminated, it was clear that the paint work was in great shape and would benefit from a hand polish and some durable protection.
The owner was keen for Auto Finesse products to be used, and as an Auto Finesse Approved Detailer, I was happy to oblige

The order of the detail (Auto Finesse products used throughout):

Full safe wash and decontamination
Hand Polish
2 layers of Tough Coat Sealant
1 layer of Spirit wax
Mint Rims for the wheels

The car on arrival.
