Hi all, a bit of a story here as opposed a report.. might be worthwhile sticking kettle on before you read! BMW 130i M-Sport Limited Edition â Carbon Black Booked in over four days for a âWhite Detailâ (Major Paint Correction, wheels-off, engine-bay and (in this instance, light) interior work) The car in question is a 2007 model with a shade under 40k miles on the clocks. My customer made the purchase just five weeks ago; a West Midlands based Sytner BMW dealership. Buying the car âblindâ, the sales-man at the time reassured my customer that the car is to Sytnerâs quality âapproved standardsâ and is ready for collection when they wereâ¦ You can see where this is going, canât you? Collection, unfortunately, was at evening whilst it was wet outside. A few bad areas were noted at the time and my customer wasnât happy. The car was left with the dealer for rectification. Second time round, little improvement. Albeit a few years old now, this was a Â£15k purchase and the car was a mess â no excuses on Sytnerâs behalf. Rather than let the dealerâs try again, my customer chose to seek external professional advice. A brief insight to the damage caused by the bodyshop ârepairsâ: The usual buffertrails from incorrect machine polisher use..

As to be expected on a BM of this age, corroded discs and calipers, Starting with the wheels-off treatment - wheels deep cleaned inside and out; removal of old wheel weight residue. Arches flushed and brake assembly wire brushed/prepped for later painting. Disc before.. After wire brushing and brake cleaner â ready for paint. The wheels, although âfullyâ refurbed, didnât come up very well at all. Lazy refurb; inner rim and wheel-nut housings were covered in overspray which I couldnât remove.
