Thanks mate.
No worries, I met you briefly at the dyno day.

2009 BMW 135i

Car: 2009 BMW 135i

Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction, Interior Clean & Leather Condition

Comments:

- Not many before pictures, because it was one of the cleanest cars we've had
- Interior was almost spotless and presented 'as new' but still a thorough clean was carried out
- Some deeper scratches and marks were heavily reduced (see photos)
- The paintwork was cleaned and the single stage polish reduced many contaminants and swirls, leaving the paint looking super shiny.
- Duragloss sealants topped off the paintwork with a super smooth finish.

Some photos:

Nice shots- is the black 135 Eugene's? He finally took my advice

Awesome results with the matte wheels on the silver 135! Need to drop mine off at some stage when this weather is a bit more reliable

Thanks mate. Yes it is! Those new 135s are amazing with the DCT.
I didn't get many after shots of it

Just a quick note to say thanks to Raj for the job he did on my 135i! Paint and interior looked immaculate, and will definitely book the car in next year to get the same work done again. Not that he needs the additional praise based on the photos he posts up from his other jobs, but would definintely recommend TWD to anyone contemplating a detail on their car. I still think he should lend out his M3 as a 'run-around' while he's detailing your car though

Cheers again!

We just finished a Stage 1 detail on this car: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...5321643&type=3

But this is probably the most important part of the detail - deep scratch removal & reduction:



No photo editing trickery here. Just some hard and long hours spent correcting this boot lid through a 4 - 5 stage paint correction.
This is basically the last resort before a paint shop respray is necessary and is on strict request by the owner.

Nice work mate.
Plenty of similar scratches on my car. Your in for a treat this weekend Raj. I'm convinced the guy that use to own my car was a pig. Contamination is an understatement. I'll be expecting to pick up a new 335i BSM come this Sunday.

2009 BSM 335i

Car: 2009 BMW 335i in Black Sapphire Metallic

Service: Stage 2 Paint Correction

Comments:
- Not the best paintwork with scratches, holograms and swirls all over the car
- Heavy cutting required in the initial stage finished with a final finish
- Heavily contaminated as previous owner lived on a farm
- Paintwork was left with a smooth and clean finish. Not to mention, metallic flake was evident and depth and clarity was definitely restored.

Few photos below:

I'm just picturing the guy cruising on the farm in a 335i instead of his tractor.
