    Cool N8 v 330d Coupe

    This was done a few weeks back, my cousin's fairly new 56 plate 330d. Car was dirty to start with:









    Started off with the wheels, they got a blast off:



    Bilberry sprayed then all over the wheels:



    Worked in with Envy brushes & cleaned all the back of the wheels:





    Back of the spokes cleaned:



    Tyres cleaned with Megs APC + Megs Tyre Brush:



    Rinsed off:



    Comparison:



    Following wheels, car was then rinsed:



    Then snow foamed:







    Then rinsed off:



    Washed via the 2BM with Megs Shampoo & Shmitt:



    Then rinsed, ready for claying:



    Clay was fairly dirty all over the car:







    Whilst I continued with the outside, my brother louis started on the interior, which needed alot of TLC:





    He's very good at helping me out:



    Leathers need alot of attention:







    The Matts were filthy as well:

    Interior looked brand new after:



    Wheels got sealed & tyres dressed etc:



    Jeffs was used on the paint:



    Autosol & Megs polish on exhaust, loads and loads of tar before hand, after 30mins +, came out new again:



    Some finishing shots:







    It rained later on as he picked it up, so you can see the beading:



    Any questions feel free to ask

    Thanks

    N8

    I use a HD lance Sarah, you wanna use strong combo. Yes Jim full Jeffs acrylic. His car is used Twiggy, 56 plate, and needs full correction next year, he needs some coils and 20"s first, I'll get him there

    mines going into hiding next week for a whole week, gona get the paint back into good standard for now until spring, most will be the protection though as all wheels will be off and clayed and sealed and wax(3 coats) the car will get a good slamming of ultrafina then sealed and then a few coats of black hole and 3 coats of colly 915.

    loo forward to seein the beemer once its done N8

    Great work N8

    Nice signwriting on the van as well! Are Fords more expensive to do because they're better?
    Currently driving a 55 plate Ford Mondeo ST. But as Arnie once said...
