328i Detailed: Bmw 325i, Lexus LS460, and Acura MDX

I don't always do a great job documenting my details, so now that I have a few of these I figured I could put them into one thread.

2006 Bmw 328i-Interior was a mess on this one, and it was dark out by the time I was done so no exterior pics.

-Products used-
Interior:
Steam cleaning
Meguiars Leather Conditioner
Optimum Protectant Plus
Meguairs APC

Exterior:
ONR
Meguairs Mild Clay
Collinite 885 Wax
Megs Hyper dressing
Meg's ASD
Eagle One Water based tire dressing
Mothers Mag and Aluminum Polish

Before:




After:






Lexus LS460
Exterior Only Detail, 2 steps of polishing
It was difficult to photograph the paint defects on this color. The factory wet sanded paint is really stunning in person.

Exterior:
Foam Cannon
CG CWG
Sonus Green Clay
Menzerna SIP on a white pad
Menzerna 106ff on black pad
both via rotary
Mothers Mag and Aluminum Polish
Optimum Opti-seal
Megs ASD
Megs Hyper Dressing


Before polishing:




After:

Acura MDX
Interior and exterior detail, didn't get a chance to snap interior pics as my camera died. Paint has been maintained by myself since it was purchased so no correction was necessary.

Exterior:
CG CWG via foam Cannon
CRC Spotless system
Purple Clay
Optimum Opti-seal
Megs Hyper dressing
Meg's ASD
AA Extreme Shine
Mothers Mag and Aluminum Polish

I agree, but at least they are easy to detail. I think bmws have a nice balance between rawness and plastic covering though.

Wow, interior of the 328 was disgusting. I can't understand how anyone would keep their otherwise nice BMW in that condition. You cleaned it up nicely though.

Once again, very nice job all around!

Thanks, the whole thing was like one big ashtray, made me realize how my steam cleaner is a must have for interiors.

Yep I've always wanted one. Nice thing is since I have the beater now I won't have to rush into finding the right one when I'm ready to buy. How's the 335i, any new mods?
