Detailer's Domain: BMW 330i exterior /interior

Got this car from a member at e90post.

Took a different approach on this car. The car was pretty clean but needed a some clay and more of a light polish /sealant/and wax.

I decided to use Einszett Metallic, followed by Einszett Glanz, and finished with Swissvax Crystal Rock.

The interior needed a nice clean up. And the rest was pretty much the detail work.

Products used:
Exterior:
Adam's Car Wash
Swissvax Yellow Clay Bar and Optimum Instant Detail Spray and Gloss Enhancer
Einszett Spray Wax
P21S Finish Restorer Metal Polish (on the tips)
Einszett Metallic
Einszett Glanz
Swissvax Crystal Rock

Wheels and tires:
Adam's Green Wheel Cleaner
Swissvax Pneu (tire dressing)
Adam's Undercarriage Spray

Interior and Glass
Leather Master Rapid S
Leather Master Protection Cream
Einszett Cockpit
Lusso Glass Polish
Einszett Plastic/Vinyl Cleaner

Tools:
Infratech 5300
Makita 9227 Hi Speed Rotary
The Uber Foam Pads (5.5inch)
Tons of "Uber" Microfiber Towels
Uber Drying Towels

Brushes
Infratech CM5300

yep, very happy with my car. oh, im the owner, lol. i bought the car CPO 4 months ago and was surprised to find a car in almost perfect condition and only 17k for an 06'. I thought the car shined nice after i washed it every week....... as i pulled up to phil's house and saw the shine on the car from down the block after the detail....... i just said "wow." approached the car and the first thing i noticed is how amazing it smelled, lol. yea, the paint all around was flawless, and he corrected 2 blemishes that i had pointed out the day before.

A+ work... anyone wanting their car looking better than showroom floor or want to maintain their finish inside and out, hit up phil. thanks
