2006 BMW E46 M3 Coupe Competition Package

This car was recently purchased by a good customer of mine. He wanted this car to be perfect like the rest of his cars that we have done for him.

This car received an Initial Swissvax Treatment, 2 stage paint correction, complete interior detail, and a complete engine bay detail as well. This car came out looking better than new! About 50 hours later!

I'll let the pictures do the talking...

Here's how the car arrived.
























Some paint transfer from a parking garage gate...

Here's how the paint looked after all pre-polishing preparations were complete.

Here's how the interior leather looked before






In the following picture, the front bolster (knee support) has been cleaned, compare to the rest of the leather not yet cleaned with Swissvax Leather Cleaner Forte.




Two different surfaces require two different preparations!






And, the finished result! after about 14 hours of polishing, and a single layer of Swissvax Crystal Rock applied using the palms of my hands! a total of 50 man hours went into this one over the course of three days!

I apply nano express and Protecton Matt before leather milk, leaving leather milk to dry while I do other things (it needs an hour or two to dry without touching it!)

Blitz I use first, before washing the car, to clean the floor mats.

Thanks for the replies everyone!

I have the same car in the same color so this was really motivating and hopeful to see. I would love if you posted information on what brand each thing you bought was from if you have the time. Great job!

Great detail. Did the owner opt out of a color sand? There is a case of mild orange peel going on.
