Cool M Sport Touring detailed

My mate has just spent the week detailing my 320d M sport Touring with pretty impressive results i am sure you will agree

Also got the wheels redone in anthracite and fitting BMW Performance black grills to get rid of the last of the chrome....








Rear windows are being tinted next week by Pentagon in the lightest shade to finish of the look.

That looks stunning. Very, very nice.
Agree with above RE: Darklines; that would finish it off nicely.
This proves the theory that E9x can look good on sensible sized wheels.

Was it wet sanded to get rid of the orange peel, or just buffed?

Cheers guys

Would like some darklines just not up for paying 250 or what ever they cost Once the rear windows are done i will probably change my mind

Machine polished, not sure what products were used....sorry not much help.

Mudflaps are genuine as far as i am aware, did have a quicl look at others and don't see any fitted.

It was Central Powder Coating in East Kilbride kerr, very happy with the results

Couple more pics....

Have Pentagon got a solution for getting the tint to stick to the dot matrix pattern on the windows ? I've been looking to get this done but no company wants to touch my E92
