Detailer's Domain: BMW M3 Competition Package - Alpine White

This beautiful BMW M3 e92 Competition Package car came to us for the full works on the exterior prior to leaving the NY/NJ for a new life in the southwestern part of the country.
The best part is the car came to us cleaned up so there isn't much for us to show in the prep except for the quick wash and decon. We tested out the Sonax Fallout Remover for the decon step, a new product we hope to have in 2014. Since the car spent all of its life in the tristate we expected the usual: fallout, rail dust, and various contaminants.

We also used the Sonax Multi Star on this car, on the motor, bug and tar, as well as cleaning up the tires.


- Wheels were prepped with Sonax Wheel Cleaner and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with Sonax MultiStar and washed down
- Wheel wells were cleaned up
- Washed with Adam's Car Wash
- Decon with Wolf's Decon Gel
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Nano Scrub AutoScrub
- Dried
- Tires dressed
- Masking
- Paint Measurement
- Compound - Menzerna FG400
- Final Polish - Sonax Nano Polish
- Last step - Sonax Polymer Net Shield
- Inspection with Fenix, Brinkmann, and natural sunlight
- Wheel wells were cleaned and dressed
- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned
- Windows were auto scrubed, cleaned, and sealed
