2012 BMW M3 Competition - Correction and Ceramic
This 2012 BMW M3 came in with just 206 miles on it, however, it suffered a dealership prep and was already marred and damaged. There were some surface scratches on the hood and quarters, and many rids and marring on the sides of the vehicle. The Competition wheels also needed some attention so we removed them, treated and applied two coats of CQuartz ceramic protection. The M3 itself was also ceramic coated after the correction for the owner to enjoy!
Cosmoline and brake dust stains on the barrels, degrease, de-tar and IronX up to the job
The wheels were alcohol wiped and then applied with two coats of CQuartz. Left to dry for 2 days before going back on the car
Masked up all the trim, took depth readings and inspected the paint...not the best for only 206 miles. Thank you improper dealer wash!
The paint condition pre-correction, a good amount of RIDs and marring were found as well as some dealer installed scratches
Here is a pair of 50/50 correction snaps between the door and front fender
The paint condition after the correction, the interior light shots are pre-ceramic coating, the outside pictures are post-ceramic coating

Never surprised. Your work is unparalleled.Currently compiling a list of all of the cars I currently own and used to own, but are now sold so I can be like everyone else.

How is the CQuartz? I've been wanting to try it, but it seems like pretty heavy duty stuff and I heard that if it's not done properly, it can stain the paint. Is this true? How does it hold up on the wheels?
