    I have a 03 3series in Orient Blue paintwork.

    Although it looked good when I bought it, now that all the colour magic has washed off I can see that the finish is looking tired & dull. It is hazy, has swirlmarks and the scratches down the sides shows signs off probably been put through automatic car washes too much.

    So does anyone know or recommend somewhere in South Yorkshire area that I can have it properly machine polished etc, and try to restore some of its original lustre?
    And any Idea what it is likely to cost?

    First up, have a look here:
    http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/index.php

    They have a section that'll tell you who's who in what area. Its not cheap but it IS worth it. Mate had a sapphire blue S14a sx done and it looked so very good after.
    Its worth having a read around on their guides too, they have some very good information on what works.
