I'm the owner Rob done the detail for. I cannot be happier with how she looks now, in the flesh it looks even better than the photos. The car looks absloutley stunning from all angles and is amazing the difference Robs magic has made to the car and I cannot stop smiling when seeing the car. I'm almost too scared to take her out the garage in case she gets dirty

Anyone thinking about having there car done I cannot recommend Rob highly enough. He detailed my wifes car after a few issues with the dealership (panda on his blackfire thread), he is a top notch guy and his work speaks for itself. The first thing I did when buying the BMW was call Rob to have her look her sunday best

Rob thanks again for the detail my wife and I are over the moon with how it turned out, look forward to droping her off some time soon

For all the nice comments on the car itself guys, thanks

Danno1975 - No mods to the car is as she lefts the factory. I have to admit I have a big soft spot for the wheels too

Thanks, I used my sheepskin pads on the bumpers so it keeps the temperature down, and probably around 1200-1500 rpm

Also did you use neat IPA or diluted?
Cheers, the halogen was from Travis Perkins.

IPA is diluted at about 1-1.

Whilst GEP is a superb product I'm surprised you've used it under Body Wrap. I guess it doesn't compromise the compatability/durabilty of the LSP or else you wouldn't have used it though. A nice combination I wouldn't have considered!

Thanks Alan, I typically rinse every car that I machine polish down prior to applying any cleansers etc..
GEP was mainly applied to freshen the finish from any watermarks or smears, then IPA'd to remove any possible oil that could affect the compatibilty of the Body Wrap.

Great work as always Rob, studio is really starting to take shape mate
Interesting use of the Blackfire GEP under the Wolfs, have you tried the Wolfs Seal & Shine yet? Very impressive product IMO
