ONR was used on this prep due to the wet weather outside.

We used some Sonax Multistar to lift any extra dirt just as a precaution before ONR was used.

I like that colour on the new 4 series, you so often see them in that metallic blue colour that everyone seems to buy, good job on getting it looking that nice too :thumb:
