Arrow Le Mans Blue E90 Sport Edition- Gleammachine.

A recent new car purchase for an existing customer- BMW E90 Sport Edition in the gorgeous Le Mans Blue.

Alloys pre-rinsed and cleansed.

Squeaky clean.

Bug splatters soaked and removed using AF citrus pre-wash.

Again entire vehicle pre-sprayed with the above, left to dwell shortly and rinsed.

Washed and de-contaminated, then a final rinse with filtered water, finally dried with plush towels and excess water blown from the panel gaps and trim.

A few dealer inflicted defects to remove, and also some poor attempts at removing them caused no doubt, by the dealership.

Difference in finish 50/50.

Front bumper.

Nice trails on the bonnet.

Drivers door.

Poor attempt at hand polishing.

Door sill.

Paintwork refined using 85 RD.

Blackfire GEP applied to cleanse the paintwork.

Excess oils removed with IPA.

Wolf's Body Wrap applied to entire vehicle, left to cure for 15-20 mins and removed.

Wheels sealed throughout.

Glass cleansed and sealed with Werkstat Prime.

Tyres treated with AF tyre dressing.

Rubber seal fed and nourished.

Plastic trim sealed using Wolf's Plastic Guard.

Glass given a final polish with distilled water.

Beading shot from the Wolf's Body Wrap.

Finished Results.

Thanks for looking, comments welcomed and appreciated.
