2000 BMW 528 Full Detail this one was a KILLER!

This is a 2000 BMW 528 Black/Tan with over 134k plus miles it's used as a daily driver and was a bit neglected over time.

Took about 6 hours (2 in the crew)

Full Detail.

Products used:

Adam's Car wash
Shmitt Wash mitt and Shmitt Wheel mitt
1 Bucket with grit guard
Jumbo Waffle Weave Drying Towel
Microfiber Buffing Towels (about 20-30 used)
Boar's Hair Brush
Spoke brush for the inner wheels
Adam's VRT
Adam's Glass Cleaner
Adam's Detail Spray
Adam's Clay Bar
Adam's Undercarriage Spray
Adam's In and out
Menzerna Super Intensive Polish
Menzerna 106FF
Menzerna FMJ
P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel
P21S Autowash
Metabo (hi speed rotary)
PC
Firehose Nozzle
Edge pad blue, green, yellow 6 inch
1Z Einszett Leather conditioner/cleaner
1Z Einszett Cockpit
1Z Einszett Detail Spray
1Z Einszett Plastik

Procedure:
1. Rinsed down the wheels (they were cool enough to touch)
2. Sprayed down the wheels with some P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel
3. Brush and cleaned the wheels with a Boar's Hair Brush
4. Rinsed down the wheels
5. Filled the bucket with water and soap
6. Used the Shmitt to wash the car, from top to hood to sides to rear.
cleaning the Shmitt after each panel was soaped up by dunking it in the bucket with the grit guard at the bottom, rinse and clean the pad and continue on to the next panel repeat till you finish washing each panel.
7. After you wash the car rinse car off throughly
8. Dried the car with a Waffle Weave Drying Towel.
9. Used Adam's Detail Spray and Adam's Clay bar to clay the entire car
10. Used the Metabo with the Menzerna SIP and the E2K green and yellow pads to polish out all the imperfections.
11. Used the Metabo with Menzerna 106FF with the E2K blue pad to polish out the car to a mirror finish.
12. Applied and removed Menzerna FMJ
13. Cleaned up the windows with Adam's Glass Cleaner (interior/exterior)
14. Dressed the tires with Adam's VRT (did one pass on the applicator and did a pass using the dry side as the customer prefers a matte finish)
15. Used 1Z Detail Spray to do a final wipe down on the wheels.
16. Used the 1Z Detail Spray for a final wipe down on the car.

Interior: (this was one of the worst we have ever done!)
1. Wiped interior downwith 1Z Plastik (plastic cleaner amazing check the review) followed by 1Z Cockpit.
2. Vacuumed the mats, carpet, etc.
3. Wiped down and scrubbed the leather with Leather Master Strong and then conditioned with Leather Master Protectant. (typically we would use Adam's or 1Z Einszett but this one was so bad we have to use something much stronger)
4. Cleaned the glass with Adam's Glass Cleaner
5. Wiped down the jambs with 1Z einszett detail spray.

Engine:

Engine cleaning was done after the wheels, as the engine was still warm
1. Rinsed down the engine
2. Sprayed some P21S Autowash on the engine
3. Brushed the dirt and grime off the engine with a boar's hair brush
4. Sprayed down engine to rinse the P21S off
5. Closed the rear hatch and let it dry
6. Wiped down the jambs and the metal parts with 1Z einszett detail spray.

Let's start with the engine:

That ride was on life support, and you brought it back from the dead.

All your hard work certainly paid off.

Very nicely done.

Q: What did you use on the exterior trim? VRT?
