    Well iv had a few days off from work so thought id give my M3 a damm good clean as it was needed







    to start off with day 1 was all focused on the exterior
    first off cleaned the wheels and arches with meg APC and worked in with a brush and left soak while i then sorted the engine bay using megs engine cleaner wich i think works a treat left that a few mins,
    I then got the snow foam out and covered the car and made a coffee,
    i then pressure washed the exterior, wheels and arches took the hose off the trickled water over engine then spayed megs engine dressing over mopping up any leftover water.
    dried the car moved onto the drive for polishing with my new kestral da polishing machine after a couple of hours with that i had removed most of the scratches and swirl marks from it and was well chuffed with the results, just need to get the drivers door sorted now were a kid round our way rode his bike hanlebars into the door and kindly took some paint off for me.
    Polished the whhels by hand after using some 3000 grit wet and dry on them and sealed them.
    the bodywork was then treated to some victoria max concours red and in my opinon is worth every penny outstanding results and smells like strawberrys.
    iv prob missed a few things out but heres what the end results look like for the outside








    a couple of night shots





    Day 2 i saw to the interior but iv got no before pics

    that was cleaned with megs APC a vax with water attachment, cleaned all the switches with cotton buds soaked in APC and leather was cleadned and treated even managed to clean up the coloured stiching on the steering wheel which i never thought id seen





    my hands are killing now but the end results are worth it

    hope you enjoy
