Winter detail '13 335i

Her last detail before I find her a new home.
I ordered this car new 6/2013 and it now has 90K miles, but overall the paint was in really good condition.

Started with wheels, wheel wells, tires, engine bay and tailpipes:
- P21s total wash
- EZ detail brushes in mult sizes and tire brushes
- P21s polishing soap, 0000 steel wool on tailpipes
- 303 dressing

Paint wash and prep:
-Strip wash paint followed by foam bath with chem guys maxi suds II
-Two bucket wash
-Mechanical decon with Nanoskin autoscrub on wet car with nanoskin glide
-Chemical decon with CarPro TRIX
-Rinse
-Masterblaster to dry

Correction:
-Pre-inspection with Gyeon prep
Only a couple of swirls, very few fine scratches or marring, and water etching
-Select spots treated with Griots BOSS FCC on Megs MF Cutting disc
-Rest of car corrected and polished with Megs D302 MF polish on MF finishing pad
-Rinse and dry

LSP:
-IPA wipedown
-BFWD sealant and let cure overnight
-Final wax Collinite 845

Interior:
-Int.Ext glass with megs D12001
-Ext windshield cleaned with Glass science glass renew, coated with GS rainclear
-Vacuum
-Clean/ DA carpet brush on front mats (thank god they are black)
-Nextzett cockpit premium hard surfaces
-Lexol Leather surfaces
-303 on kickplates and weather moldings
-Door jams and pedals cleaned with Tornador with ONR, hand waxed

Other tools - Flex 3401 main polisher, PC 7424 with 3" BP for tight areas, Master blaster, Home depot buckets with dollys, Grit guards, wool wash mits, tons of MF towels, LC ultrafine and finishing pads, AR blue clean 390SS, foam cannon, dedicated detail bay in the garage .

Sad to see her go, but my replacement ride is a CPO Porsche Macan Turbo in jet black metallic with fair/good paint. That'll be my spring project with photos to come....

Thanks! I took my time and did it over two days. Exterior, correction and sealant on day one - prob 6 or 7 hours. And wax, interior on day two.

Flex makes the job a whole lot faster than when I was just using the PC.

Only a detailers eye would see that big dirty spot - lol.
Nope, just a dirty undercarriage. Actually appreciate the heads up though

Looks awesome! Definitely makes me feel optimistic that all of the winter crap currently on my car will come off once it warms up. Also, I totally need to spend some more time on the interior when I do a detail, yours looks brand new!

Random question: What rotors are those? I've got a brake job coming up soon, and I'd like to replace the stockers with something a little bit sportier.

Thanks, it's just me so the interior is easy to keep up with. I just use a damp MF cloth to wipe dash and leather down regularly. For cleaning and dressing I use Nextzett (formerly Einszett) cockpit premium and Lexol on the leather. It's a light cleaner with a subtle Matte to no shine that always makes it look new instead of greasy. Smells great too!

Rotors are D/S coated from ECS, stock calipers, hawk 5.0 pads and some Motul fluid. Feels great

Thanks.
It's bamboo anthracite. It Is a little bright and brown in some of the direct sunlight pics. It's more of a grayish brown tone in person... I guess, anthracite.
