Opti Coat Pro Installations: Audi S3 & BMW 135i + Paint Correction

Opti Coat Pro – Audi S3 Ara Blue & BMW 135i

Some recent work for a new Audi S3 Ara Blue & a BMW 135i. 2008 135i involved a huge turn around to revive the nine year old paint system and ensure long lasting protection. 

As part of the Opti Coat Pro service an inspection wash includes complimentary education session to cover how to maintain your coating. Microfibers, chemicals, tools, wash styles, any manner of car care is covered. 

Wheel faces, lenses, paint, and chrome were covered with a Optimum Opti Coat Pro. OCP comes with a 5 year warranty along with marring, scratch, and acid resistance. Click below for more photos and Facebook Albums going into the full process.

BMW M4 Mineral White Performance Kit Renewal Detail

Beautiful BMW M4 Mineral White Coupe new car renewal treatment. No real issues with the vehicle. Fair amount of contamination on the rear of the vehicle. To up the gloss a good minor paint cleaning and polish was used prior to sealing all surfaces. Client wanted a super glossy and shiny surface. Wheels were done with a Coating Treatment which involved deep cleaning, polishing, and prepping the wheels with a special agent.

New Car Coating: BMW M4 Black Sapphire

New Car Coating: BMW M4 Black Sapphire

VEHICLE INFORMATION:

A beautiful beast of a car:BMW M4 Black Sapphire Black on Black! We had our hands full, so early morning commute and treatment to this beauty. Not too many issues for a black vehicle, but we definitely had to spot level a few areas. Final notes:

  • Hyper Polish, then M205 with MF Finishing Disc to remedy deep rids from the factory
  • Hand polish all the intricate curves and paint groves
  • Optimum Opti Coat All Paint.
  • Interior wipedown & dressing removal from sides of door. Ugly dealership dressings are bad1

Vehicle was in great shape, just needed a thorough cleaning and coating. We set this client up with proper wash tools and the finest Korean microfibers!

New Car Detail: BMW F30 328i Silver Metallic

Vehicle: 2014 BMW F30 328i Silver Metallic

Condition: New Car Preparation Detail for this BMW 328i F30 Silver Sedan. Serious decontamination needed on the right side of the vehicle as well as the entire vehicle for a deep clean. We threw on Leather Protection Cream on the Dakota seats. Tires had some serious dealership grime issues, we stripped them and added CarPro Perl. Vehicle was given a good protection scheme with HD Speed, Powerlock, and OptiSeal. Lighting wasn’t the best to capture the gloss of this vehicle.

Stucco Concrete Removal with Molecular Cement Dissolver: 2010 BMW 128i Red

Stucco Concrete Removal with Molecular Cement Dissolver: 2010 BMW 128i Red

Stucco Overspray Removal

VEHICLE TREATMENT:

2010 BMW 128i – Red with approximately 30K miles. Paint readings average from 130-150 microns on OEM sections of vehicle. Biggest issue for this vehicle was stucco cement overspray all over the vehicle. We used a non-caustic, non acid, biodegradable, non hazardous, and special cement dissolver for the exterior of the vehicle. This vehicle had a previous detail for swirl removal, pictures show pretty lackluster appearance and obvious induced swirls from improper technique. Thankfully stucco was removed with three applications of our dissolver. Clay bar and Nanoskin towel made quick work of any leftover contamination.

Level 1 Renew BMW 335 Black + Wash and Wax Porsche 991 911 Suntek Matte Paint Protection

VEHICLE TREATMENT:

BMW 335 Black in for a general level 1 clean & protection detail. Suntek Matte Paint Protection Wrap Wash & Wax Maintenance on a Porsche 991 911. Both vehicles are kept outside so maintenance is hard. We wanted to protect and clean these vehicles without going too far into restoration. Porsche was dusted and vacuumed, Opti Seal doing wonders on the film’s slickness and cleanliness. 335 took some time to deep clean the interior leather surfaces as well as stripping as much as possible on the exterior.

Instead of using Acid on the wheel, deionizing the wheel safely with repeated safe applications really deep cleaned the wheel. We also treated the alcantara with Leather Master’s Nubuck Eco Protector.
