Noticed some scratches/swirls on side mirrors, how did I get them? maybe from hand car washes I used to go in winter. lets fix them.

Used following items for remove scratches/swirls from glass...

1. DA Polisher
2. 3M Trizact Glass Restoration Discs , blue, orange and then white disk
3. Carpro Glass polishing pad with Carpro ceriglass polish
4. Wiped them with IPA
5. Applied Gtechniq CSL and Exo V3 on glass, side mirror covers and frame
6. And lots of water during the polishing process.


enjoy

I bought precuts from invisiblemask.com, I bought 3m scotchgaurd pro, self healing. applying on hood, fenders, headlights were easy and front bumper was PITA. if you are planning to apply yourself I would advise to watch some youtube videos. I have a kit for e90 LCI front bumper, if you are interested buying kit for front bumper with pdc let me know.... good luck

If you doing it yourself, you will buy pre-cut, if it is being done by Pro shop, they use sheet and cut it accordingly, same thing. Curves are not easy to deal with, you need another person to stretch the film and press down the curves area.
