We were contacted by a gentleman in Bridgwater who wanted his five month old BMW M135i to get some TLC and protection ready for the winter. This was the car on arrival:
As a fairly new car, it wasn't exactly shabby
But the owner wanted it to have a little lift in appearance, and to get it ready for Winter.
There were also a couple of scuff marks on the roof, courtesy of a clumsy window cleaner, that needed attention
So we began by thoroughly cleaning the wheels, using a non-acidic wheel cleaner, and various brushes so that we could get to the inner rims too. A foam was used as a pre-wash to loosen any loose grit and grime, and a soft detailing brush used around the badges and other dirt traps.
The car wash then washed thoroughly, and the paintwork further decontaminated, removing industrial fallout and other bonded contamination. A final rinse and then the paintwork was dried with microfibre drying towels.
The paintwork was then polished with a pre-wax cleaner to further enhance the finish. Then a coat of titanium spray sealant was applied, followed by a coat of high endurance wax. The tyres and trim were dressed, and the exterior glass was treated with a rain repellent.
Onto the interior, which was vacuumed thoroughly. The mats and carpets were shampooed, and the leather seats cleaned and conditioned. All interior plastics were cleaned and the interior glass was also cleaned.
This meant we were able to deliver the car back to the customer looking like this:
The customer was so happy, that he asked us to look after the vehicle with monthly maintenance valeting
