  1. #1 Default Detailer's Domain: BMW 135 - Aquartz Applied 
    This 1 series came to us in pretty good shape. Not much polishing was needed however a thorough cleaning was necessary and proper prep on the paint and wheels were needed to apply Aquartz and Opti Coat - something the customer was keen on as this is a heavily used daily and also sees the track time.

    What was done -

    - Wheels were prepped with Sonax Wheel Cleaner and cleaned up with various brushes
    - Tires were spritzed down with Adamís All Purpose Cleaner and washed down
    - Wheel wells were cleaned up
    - Pre Washed with W99
    - Iron Cut
    - Wash down and rinsed
    - Door jambs were cleaned up
    - Clayed
    - Dried
    - Tires dressed
    - Masking
    - Paint Measurement
    -1 Step - Sonax Perfect Finish
    - Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight
    - Last Step Ė Aquartz (3 coats)
    - Wheels pulled off and treated with Opti Coat 2
    - Brake Calipers cleaned and treated with Opti Coat 2
    - Wheel wells were cleaned and dressed
    - Rubber and Plastics Treated
    - Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
    - Exhaust tips cleaned
    - Windows were clayed, cleaned, and sealed

    Adam's All Purpose sprayed generously on the engine bay

    Engine was dressed with Adam's In and Out Spray

    Bug and tar was evident on the nose of the car. I used the 1Z einszett Anti-Insekt Bug + Tar Remover


    As you can see the Iron Cut was needed on this 1.

    The 1 was washed with W99 and then rinsed well.

    Clayed the windows and paint

    I was still able to pull contaminants off the paint

    Used 3m Adhesive remover to pull tar off the bottom of the car

    As mentioned before the car didn't need much in terms of correction. We used Sonax Perfect Finish to prep the paint for Aquartz

    On to the wheels, brake calipers and wheel wells

    Steam used to clean the caliper/wheel wells etc

    Opti Coat applied

    Adam's Super VRT on the tires

    Wow. I'm sure it looks better now than when it rolled off the lot.

    BTW, what's that Iron Cut stuff and what does it do?
