Here are the BEFORE pictures of a daily driven BMW 5 Series that came in for an Interior and Silver Detail package. The customer has used us before, and wanted me to take loads of before and after pictures of the car, so he could show his friends, and workmates the quality of our work.

As the car is a daily driven car which has covered 90K miles and had never seen a detail its fair to say that the contamination on the car all over was extremely high...

We cleaned and treated the leather seats using Supernatural leather cleaner, and conditioner. For those who haven't heard of the Supernatural brand, it is the flagship brand from Dodojuice :) As you can see being a daily driven car the seats did bring up quite a lot of contamination. The picture with multiple pads shows the top left being the drivers seat, bottom left the passenger seat, and the rear pads being the rear seats....

After going through each step from our Silver Detail package,

(Vehicle rinsed using low pressure filtered water
Lower third sprayed with a non caustic citrus cleaner, and rinsed
Wheels, arches and door shuts cleaned by hand with a non caustic citrus degreaser
Wheels cleaned with a pH neutral wheel cleaner
Vehicle sprayed with a pH neutral snow foam™, left to dwell and rinsed
Hand washed using a sheep wool mitt, with a pH neutral shampoo using 2 bucket method
Tar removed from vehicle
Hand dried using high quality, specialist, microfibre drying towels)

We then started to clay bar the car. After 4 clay bars we managed to get the paintwork ready for the sealant process...

Even tho the customer was very happy with the finished detail, we took plenty of pictures as the many trips to the cheap hand car wash places had taken their tow. The paintwork had bad paint swirls, holograms and areas which looked matte in certain light. We advised a paint correction package, and a wheel removal as the brake dust had started to eat into the lacquer in some places, especially around the lug nuts. He is considering this at a later date, so hopefully we can get the car back and bring this BMW 5 Series back to its former glory :)
