Oakes Detailed: BMW E30 M3 Restoration

This 1989 BMW M3 came in for a full restoration detail to get it ready for sale, with only 88k miles on it the car was fairly clean and in great shape. Our goal here was to make it look undriven and we'll let you be the judge!
Alpine white is the perfect color for this iconic car!

Car as it arrived:




Wheels Before/After



5.


Seats before Leatherique treatment, during and after the treatment. A lot of color restored and much cleaner look, love this stuff!




10.



License Plate area before/after




Underside of bumper before/after

15.





Paint Condition Before Correction

Before/After of Paint Condition on certain panels

Paint Condition After






Reflection and Finished Photos of the vehicle
