M135i AW detail with GTechniq products

Detailing complete! The paintwork was in pretty good condition for the age and mileage, some minor swirls and polish marks (looks like someone less talented tried to polish it at some point in its life) but quite a lot of bonded contaminants. When I collected the car from BMW I told them not to do any valet/cleaning/polishing as I know the standard of work is usually pretty low.

The car was dropped off at a local detailer who did all the normal pre-work (wash, clay, decontaminate), followed by a 2 stage machine polish, then coating with GTechniq CSL and Exo v3. Also, has G5 on the glass and C2 on the wheels. First impressions are very good, paintwork has a great gloss to it and the beading is awesome!
