I try to document the car as much as possible and because the readers are not there in person to see it, I need tonnes of photos to show results as best as I can.

Thanks mate! The intention was to make it look "clean" so I guess we achieved that

Titanium Silver BMW Performance 125i - Stage 1 Paint Correction

Car: 2009 BMW Performance 125i

Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction

Comments:
- Being silver, you could barely tell the car needed any work, but upon closer inspection you could see the usual imperfections, a few scratches here and there, micro swirls and a rough feel to the bottom half of the vehicle
- Few tar marks were obvious and dirt stuck in edges near seals
- Wheels and calipers needed a good clean too
- Gloss was restored back into the silver paintwork and as the owner put it “The car looked brand new again”

Not heaps of photos this time, but you get the idea

Hey Raj, where in the hills are you based?

I've touched the Cayenne on the garage door and its slurped some of the paint off the wood work. It'll all pretty much buff out (it isn't through the paint) however I don't have a deep enough pad to go over it with the buffer.

Hi. The Performance brakes rear calipers will not work 'out of the box' with the 125/128i but will for the 123d and 130i (and of course 135i).

But Peter@Advan(skycat) can get make it work.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo - Custom Services: Minor scratch repair

Car: 2004 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Service:

Comments:
- Quick tap with a wooden post meant that there was transfer on the bumper which resulted in a scratch.
- The white scratch looked hideous and was obvious against the Basalt Black Metallic paint.
- We went from least aggressive (clay and polish) to most aggressive (wet sand) to remove this mark.
- Owner couldn't be happier
