Paint correction

My detail guys are working on the diesel and m5 today.
Paint correction on the diesel came out amazing for a 3 yr old car.

Love that car and will have a hard time getting rid of it.
I got the Stealth Stamp of Approval (SSA) so I am good.

They are working on the m5 now. Saw a lot of scratches in the paint under their light that I didnt see before. Will post pics soon.

Dave, you gonna need one of these details after your road trip. How is it going?
I am following your other thread. Amazing pics. Would love to do a drive like that. I bet you feel rested and your back isn't hurting.

Yeah I've already noticed my fenders behind each front wheel are pretty jacked up from rock chips as well as my front doors. Front bumper is good since it has a clear bra, but my hood def has more rock chips on it as well. Right now it's a battle between me and the bugs! I'm getting 10x more bug splats than I ever got over in Cali. Oye! Reason #1 why the West Coast is the Best Coast! Lol! I haven't decided what I'll do yet once the trip is over. It def needs a paint correction, but I'm also thinking about wrapping the entire car, maybe even a different color. Or maybe just wait it out for like a year and see if I want to get into a new 2015 M5 or something. Who knows!

I would honestly have a heart attach by now after seeing all the rock chips. I don't know how you deal with it, but then again, it is an awesome road trip, perhaps better than our European Deliveries.
I like the wrap idea.....Frozen San Marino Blue and I will go over there and visit you.

I just finished washing and waxing my M5 tonight. She doesn't look too bad considering that I've put 3,700 miles on her in the last 7 days. In my trunk I have a mobile detailing center. The key is to keep up on keeping her clean so that the dirt, brake dust, and pollutants in the air don't build up on the paint. Today I spent 30 minutes alone cleaning the front bumper twice for bugs. But yeah rock chips are almost everywhere now.

Also, Kamil get outta my freaking head! Matte San Marino Blue is one of my secret colors! Lol!

Lol, I have a portable detail center in my trunk as well and always looking for bird droppings.

I would say let's do the wrap together, but someone decided to move across the whole country....

Probably won't be able to tell much from the pics since they were taken with a phone, but the guys did an amazing job. I actually saw a lot of tiny scratches in my paint and they were all gone. The color became very deep and it almost has a different shade now. PM me if any of you want his contact info. He came out to my house and did a terrific job on both cars.
12 yr old alpine white e46 is next.

Thanks. I would suggest you get your car similar treatment. Unfortunately, re-delivery prep involves just a machine wash, same towels that have been used on 100's of cars and cheap wax. I was shocked to see all the scratches in my paint.

Awesome! Some of the best Azurite Black pics I have seen.
Should be added to the AB color photo thread.
