We have a BMW E90, 6 years old, full of swirls and had been detailed by a famous detailing in PJ as informed by the owner himself. So we expected the car to be in good shape but instead…
The illustrations shows the initial look of the car when we arrived. Looks glossy from far but not as stunning.
The car was quite dirty as it looks, notice the exhaust tips are fully oxidised.
So we took some immediate shots of the surface defects and we found heavy swirls and holograms.
From another view, you can clearly see the holograms.
The rims was bulked up with brake dust.
After a detailed wash, claying and cleaning all the edges
The clean look after the car went through a detailed wash.
Now for the correction steps. We gave a few passes of compound to remove the swirls and scratches
A closer look on the surface.

After that we run a few passes of polish to level out the holograms.
We utilised a different kind of lighting for easier view on the holograms and yes, it has been corrected. The car was ready for the coating process.
Before the coating, we gave the car another wash to remove dust and oil and also did some minor correction on the oxidised exhaust tips.
Overall it was not a perfect 100% correction but the owner was happy to see the car being transformed into the 6 years ago state. Also having see that it is a lot shinier and glossier. It was a 10hrs job but totally worth it. Enjoy the final results and thanks for supporting and reading.
