TWD - E46 BMW 318i - Interior Clean & Leather Condition

Car: 2001 BMW E46 318i

Service: Interior Cleaning, Leather condition & Maintenance Wash"

Comments:
- 12 years and no treatment on the interior of this car!
- Stains, marks and wear throughout
- Original grey colour restored from dirty brown
- Unfortunately, wear couldn't be treated, but the appearance was thoroughly improved. Check out the photos to see a night and day difference

To be honest, it was a straight car, but really speaking the wash just didn't do wonders. It really needed a good single stage polish. Paint was pretty rough to the touch.
I could make that Alpine White shine like a mirror

I'm curious to know what to clean my door cards with- I've worn some of the texture off the grab handles trying to clean them before.

Damn! Nice job and nice save...it can breath again! I bet you slide right on out of that ride now. I used Meguires leather care on my seats. I also used the cleaner for the dash in my car. Best thing I used on the carpet so far is the Resolve with Scotch guard protection.

So it would seem that everyone wants to know how this one was done....and so we're thinking we might actually sell some interior detailing kits with everything needed to get the SAME results. PM me if you're interested in that kit. We'll ship Australia wide only and these kits will be available from next month.
