    Having just returned from a few months away my BMW was looking a little sorry for itself, my dad has cleaned her but it is not to my usual standard.

    This morning I got a bit snap happy, and these are just the before photographs at the mo.


    Before Detailing




































    A few more BEFORE pictures

























    Tomorrow will be detailing day.
