BMW 328i M Sport - receives a new car prep with Opti Coat installation.

This beautiful brand new estoril blue BMW 328i M Sport receives a new car prep with Opti Coat installation.

The car was received relatively clean, however we found hair line scratches in clusters, some light swirls and marring from washes, and the b pillars were the normal lightly scratched and scuffed up piano black we have come accustomed to on cars with these type of trim pieces.

The final results were great and I believe the customer was quite happy with the work performed.
