Wow! Looks great! That M3 scrubbed up very nicely. SMG I too- don't see too many of them around.

Too bad it's raining like stink for the last 3 weeks!

2005 BMW 325ci M Sport

Car: 2005 BMW 325ci M Sport
Service: Stage 3 Paint Correction, Engine Bay Clean, Leather Condition & General Interior Clean
Comments:
- Car was delivered on a weeknight. The owner went on holidays for a week, so I had it at my place. He was considering selling the car. It was pretty straight with original paint (rare) and apart from a few small stone chips on the front, a small chip on the passenger door and a mark in the rear bar, it was pretty immaculate.
- Car was kept clean & washed regularly, but it had heavy swirling which was obvious under sun/lights and watermarks mainly on entire bonnet and roof.
- Side indicators were yellow and slightly faded so they were sanded and polished.
- Leather had a few stains on them from baby food and overall dry leather.
- 3 Stage brought out all swirl marks, also brought out some heavy scratches/marks from the paint work, made the metallic flake visible and the owner was VERY impressed. So much so that he doesn’t want to sell the car!

Before, During and After Photos below:

Modified 2001 BMW E46 M3

Car: 2001 BMW M3
Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction
Comments:
- I got this car early Saturday morning just before the BSM 325ci was picked up. The car was to be prepared for the Sydney German Car Show, so we were pushed for time.
- After getting some custom body work done to the car and a fair bit of money spent on paint work, the car needed a good detailing.
- Previous detailer had left holograms in the paint, wax marks everywhere and failed to make the metallic flake visible in the carbon black paintwork.
- Lower portion of the body felt rough (heavy build up of dirt) and there were a minor swirl marks all over the car, including some watermarks on the boot lid. Also some scuff marks and marring in certain areas.
- See the photos for results. Not many, because we were pushed for time. Notice the flake in the carbon black paint and with swirls gone (given only Stage 1) it was a pretty awesome finish. The car looked fantastic at the show and the owner and I received many compliments about the work performed

I am going to use them Ian.. BUT only half bonnet..

Got a massive stone chip on front edge of my bonnet last weekend, which have to get fixed first.

Looks like I was caught in this pix trying to be incognito at the show..

Ian, I have it on my CS, it's brilliant!
It's just on the front bar. You wouldn't be able to tell unless I told you, or you had a good look up close.

And yes, speak to Andrew at Ozicozi. They work on most exotics, Lambos, Lotus, Ferrari, etc.

Joe, you look like you're on a mission!

I think there was a Golf there with the half bonnet and half guards done at the show?? It looked like a big scratch in the paint. I prefer the whole panel to be done, but that's just me.

From experience on M3s, you want to also do Mirrors and the front lower portion of the rear fenders (exactly like a 911 Porsche - but they come from factory).

Yes, all booked in for Thursday next week with OziCozi...still waiting on 1M delivery, but looks like Tuesday as car didn't go through QA on cleaning before dealer, so got shoved back on transport.

Also getting Andrew to put black vinyl on side gills & tint front windows same as rear factory tint.
