Car revival for this low mileage E350 Mercedes Benz with minor dealership and car wash paint damage. We opted for a paint enhancement to deal with the majority of the defects and proper protection for easy maintenance. Minor dye issues on the rear seats, we used a variety of leather master products to reduce the damage. Wheels were deep cleaned, polished, and stripped for an Optimum ceramic coating for longterm easy to clean maintenance.

BMW M5 E60 Metallic Sapphire Black Paint Enhancement

BMW M5 E60 Metallic Sapphire Black Paint Enhancement

VEHICLE TREATMENT:

E60 BMW M5 Sedan black metallic paint polish enhancement treatment. Our approach was to enhance the paint by removing the light and medium defects. This vehicle has 70000 miles and was originally in Virginia. On top of a brutal climate, the vehicle previously had a full body vinyl wrap. Our time was spent mostly removing the glue on every edge besides completing a thorough paint polish. Despite quite a few deep scratches especially on the lower sides and rear bumper, the paint was leveled in high traffic areas and fully polished for high gloss. For the age we’re happy and the pictures show the beast waiting to hit the streets. Glue removal was a test of patience, we went through a complete bottle of Tarminator & Adhesive Remover.
