New Car Detail - Alpine White MY20 G01 BMW X3 xDrive 20d M Sport

My last three new cars I have asked the Dealer not to do any prep what so ever
However I didn't fancy the whole new car prep thing this time & just let the Dealer prep the car, which in all honestly, had me holding my breath a little

I had a few issues on collection with the cleanliness of the X3 on collection but nothing major and the supplying Dealer sorted me out with over £200 worth of freebies so happy enough for a bit of dirt lol

The main thing is the cars paintwork was fine. No scratches or swirls that I could see, even under the strong LED lights in my garage
After the pre-washing/shampoo the paint was squeeky clean so didn't require a full decontamination IMHO

As usual no 'in progress' photos
Didn't get to my usual photo shoot location as I didn't have time, so that will have to wait

Detail as done -

Strong pre-wash with ValetPro Citrus Pre-Wash
Snow foamed with CarChem's SF
2 bucket wash with MF Madness Incredimitt & a strong mix of G3 Detox shampoo
Lower 1/2 of bodywork decontaminated with CP Iron-X (which turned out to be unnecessary)
Bodywork prep'ed with Bilt Hamber Cleanser Fluid
2 x coats of Gyeon Q2 Cure applied with short MF & buffed off with a plush MF
Door & boot shuts treated with Gyeon Q2 Cure
2 x coats of Planet Polish Wheel Seal & Shine applied to the wheels
Tyres dressed with Meguairs Endurance Tyre Gel
Exhaust tips cleaned and sealed with Britemax Final Shine sealent
Under bonnet cleaned with APC
Interior surfaces cleaned with Sonax Xtreme Interior Cleaner
Interior glass cleaned with CP Eraser
Exterior glass cleaned with Rain-X Glass Cleaner & Rain Repellent (Got some Dodo Juice Supernatural Glass Sealant left so will apply that when it gets a bit warmer)

(Leather interior to be cleaned / sealed with Colourlock Cleaner & Leather Shield later on this week - pic's to follow)


A few pic's -

















I'm really pleased with how it looks, having not used Cure for some time. The pic's don't do the finish justice TBH

Thanks for looking

Looks lovely really liking the look of the new X3. Just returned an X3 M40d which really impressed me and have to say it’s certainly a contender to replace my current X5 40d. I was surprised over the 48hrs of ownership I averaged 38 MPG and that was with a few spirited drives. How are you finding the MPG with the 20d.

Thanks Shane
Didn’t test drive the M40d as I knew I’d want one if I did
Getting around 40mpg at the mo & I’m not driving with an eye on the economy so expect it to get better with time
