I have no heat transfer from pipe to bumper I'm very happy with the visual look also. This picture has a dark area that makes it appear closer then it really is.

Over the weekend did a full interior and exterior detail.

Started Friday night with a debris wash.



Then pulled the full interior plastics, seats, console. (I didn't get pic of the gutted interior.) Saturday did the full vacuum, rub down treatment on the pleather, glass cleaning, All door jams and any visible areas near there. Here's a picture after steam cleaning the seats.









While the seats dried in the beautiful sun we had. Secondary wash began followed by a full body clay bar, then a nice follow up wax and buff. I still have a little bit of swirl to buff out but here is my almost fished product.







I'm hoping this up coming weekend is nice so i can wash the engine bay and undercarriage. Ran out of weekend car time to do it this weekend.

Products used:

Wash with:
Armorall car wash concentrated formula
Mothers claybar
Meguiars mist and wipe wax
Buff with turtle wax polishing compound

Interior was done with:
Bissel little green machine
Bissel upholstery cleaner
Meguiars glass Cleaner
Meguiars interior detail wipes
Armorall original spray
Giant shop vacuum
Cat comb

They need more meat or it needs coils. The tires are what came on the rims when I got them. I've been contemplating which route I want to take. Funds have been in different places so i haven't fixed my dislikes with them yet.

SO... I have had a few buddies own this car for the last 6+ years. 6 years and 2 weeks ago I was detailing another buddies E30 and fot sheets and giggles I did a quick once over on the hood and fenders. Well this just goes to show what a few easy steps can do so save your paint over time... This was a 14 hour paint correction... And as a true friend I left the drives rear view mirror original... lol

6+ years ago...
