    BMW E46 325i Detail paint correction, 155,000mile under its belt..Pic Heavy

    A good mate of mine has owned this car for the last 6 years and he does many motorway miles a month hence the milage of 155,000miles.
    Mechanically it is perfect but being on the go all the time, it only ever got washed by our friends the Pols!!!!!!.......Hence the VERY damaged paintwork.

    So he is looking at selling it soon so wanted it making presentable.....

    This is the pics of said detail.,... All together was about 20 hours.







    VERY Swirlly bodywork







    The car is parked under a row of trees when not being used so as you may guess theres tree sap and leaves everywhere!!!

    Tried out the new "Dragon Breath" on the wheels.....IT STINKS!!!!!.....good removal of Iron though






    Under the bonnet i hit with G101 and snow foamed





    De-Tared the whole car with Supernaturel....VERY GOOD STUFF!!!



    After the car has been decontainated and clayed completely



    Bought into the shade to begin cutting with Sonax....Very impressed with this also

    Before



    After........LOADS better but not 100% as i think theres some very deep marks in the paint from the old "Brush at the petrol station"













    Then i Black Holed the whole car...





    Little go at the rear boot lights





    Engine bay came up well



    Got "The Twins" on the Leather Trim.......Superb results and smells great







    Car finally finished.........













    Thanks for looking..................

    Excellent work! With so much leaf debris in the gutters I'm amazed it hasn't leaked water into the car anywhere from blocked drain holes. Or is it only Audis that do that?
