BMW M135i - Ceramic Coating - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This great BMW M135i came in before Christmas for some reviving.
The car had just over 135k on the clock and the owner intended to put many more miles on it, but wanted to bring it back to it's best and protect it.

The order of the detail,

Wheels, tyres and arches cleaned.
Full safe wash process.
Decontamination - tar removal, iron fallout removal, clay bar and an IPA wipe down.
Major Enhancement detail - multi stage machine polish.
CeramiTech 9H+ ceramic coating.
System X Interior protection.
Exterior glass coated with System X.
Engine bay cleaned and dressed.

The car on arrival.
