My Ride: QUEENS, NY
e46 M3 topped with Swissvax Blau Weis

e46 M3

This car had a complete respray just 3 months ago.
No machines were used, all done by hand.
I was able to make the paint really glow after I was done.

Interior
shampooed with light citrus cleaner,
meduim citrus cleaner for the icky steering wheel & a tooth brush
Lexol leather cleaner & conditioning creme

Exterior
#000 steel wool used to polish all exterior glass surfaces
Rejex applied to all glass, wheels, head & tail lights

Hand polished with Liquid Glass Ultimate Car Polish
1Z Einszett Glans Wax - applied by hand
Swissvax Blau Weis Premium Wax specifically blended for BMW Paints - applied by hand)

It was cloudy this morning when he picked the car up.
The best reflection shot was taken inside the shop.

We finished the car yesterday around noonish but I didn't want the customer to pick it just yet. It started to pour & the ground was soaking wet. He was headed for the MAC show on Sunday & I wanted the car to look as fresh as possible from the detail. I picked the customer up this morning & we headed off to my shop.






Shout to MAC who did the paint work.
If your looking for top notch work, this is the place to go.
I've detailed a few cars that had work done by them. I've seen really crappy body work & paint work but...every car that MAC touches looks flawless. This has to be one of the best shops in the entire Tri-State area.
