Detailer's Domain: BMW M3 Detail/3M PPF Install

This was a great job for us, a complete detail with 3M PPF install.

The subject was a BMW M3 that my customer just picked up, he wanted to get it cleaned up and protected from the elements, as well requested that we install 3M PPF on the Front Bumper and Side Skirts.

The car was not in bad shape at all the light scratches and swirls were not even noticed until we hit it up with a ton of different lighting. So minor we could not pick them up in pictures but they were there and it required 2 steps to pull them out. The metallic paint hid them extremely well.

Mission: to max out the shine via Menzerna SIP and PO85RD, give it some nice glow and shine with Swissvax Divine and make sure the car is prepped correctly for the 3M PPF install.

Products used:
Exterior:
Lusso AutoBathe
Uber Yellow Wash Sponge
Swissvax Yellow Clay Bar and Optimum Instant Detail Spray and Gloss Enhancer
Einszett Spray Wax
Menzerna Super Intensive Polish
Menzerna PO85RD
Swissvax Divine

Wheels and tires:
Einszett Wheel Cleaner
Swissvax Wheel Brush
Uber Wheel Brush
Uber Spoke Brush
Swissvax Pneu
Swissvax Autobahn

Interior:
Einszett Deep Cleaner
Einszett Cockpit
Leather Master Strong Cleaner
Leather Master Vital Conditioner
Adam's Glass Cleaner

Tools:
Infratech 5300
Flex 3403
The Uber Foam Pads (5.5inch)
Tons of "Uber" Microfiber Towels
Uber Drying Towels

Brushes
Cam Spray and Cam Spray Foam Canon

So let's start with the interior, we did the typical once over, wipe down with Einszett Cockpit and treated the Leather with Leather Master Trio
