Detailing 101 ( BMW 540I )

Hi guys

I have a BMW 540i M sport in for an enhancement detail. Same owner of the X3 I did before, the owner was thrilled and wanted something for his daily driver. He had some concern with some RIDs and I taken care most of them for him. I also made a video upon the owner's request, so I hope you guys enjoy!




Please feel free to question and comment!
Thanks for looking!
Franki

whats your goal and your leather's condition? If you're looking for the basics..then a leather master kit will do fine.

good music choice, i would have stopped watching at the wheel stage lol.

just throwing it out there, usually its recomended to wash from top to bottom, as in start with the roof not the hood. same goes for rinsing.

good job though
