BMW Z4M Coupe Autofinesse Detail

Hi guys

Heres another BMW Z4M autofinesse detail, this one belongs to my childhood friend. He has no time for 2 bucket wash, so I suggested the Enhancement detail with an AF punch. The goal was to restore gloss and protected from California winter ( rains )

Tools used

GG DA Polishers
Uber Green pads


various brushes
Tires dressed with AF Gloss


2 grit guard buckets
2 Uber no name towels
Auto Finesse Oblitarate


Autoscrub and ONR lube


AF Rejuvenate


AF desire


The car was pretty dirty, haven't been washed for months because of his ankle injury.

Wheel n tires need much attention

Grimes around the car

Starting with wheels first as always, but I sold my Kranzle Power washer, so Im doing it old fashion. Rinse, apply AG CWC ( autoglym custome wheel cleaner ) on wheels n tires, agitate all areas, and rinse.

Then attention was brought to the paint, normally I would Foam the car with foam cannon, but I doing this old fashion again. Using AF Oblitarate to knock off as much grimes as possible around the car, then Rinse and perform an ONR wash.

Then I prep the car with Autoscrub and clay ( Autoscrub wasn't behaving good ) Polished with AF Rejuvenate and applied a coat of AF Desire


Thanks for looking!!
Hope you guys liked it,
and please ask any questions or comments you may have.

Hey, great job! The white paint really pops, which I know is hard to do.
