My Ride: All sorts of cars
TWD - 2011 BMW X3 - Stage 1 Paint Correction & General Interior Clean

Car: 2011 BMW X3 2.0d M Sport

Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction & General Interior Clean

Comments:
- Solid white paintwork was heavily contaminated
- Heavy build up of dirt on wheels and under arches (brake dust, rotor dust, grime, etc)
- Car required more decontamination rather than paint correction
- 6 hour intensive clay of ALL paintwork was followed with a medium grade polish that ensured that the Alpine White popped
- Gloss restored and white paint looked very reflective
- Interior suffered from random marks, dirt and dust
- Owner was happy that the car looked like new again

Random before and after shots:

Front Wheel:





Area around door handle:





Wheel arches:

Good to see that you don't just do exotics, but also the everyday car. Makes your services very approachable for certain e46 owners... :shifty
