Default Detailing 101 ( BMW 540I )

Hi guys

I have a BMW 540i M sport in for an enhancement detail. Same owner of the X3 I did before, the owner was thrilled and wanted something for his daily driver. He had some concern with some RIDs and I taken care most of them for him. I also made a video upon the owner's request, so I hope you guys enjoy!



Please feel free to question and comment!
Thanks for looking!
Franki

I really liked the video! This may be asking too much, but could you list the products out for each step in the video? Thanks

Thanks, well the 3 in autoscrub melt on me on the second detail. A claybar can melt too, but you can bring it back to life in a bucket of cold water. This $25 3in autoscrub melts and its gone! so if its 97 F out and stupid humidity, a clay bar n bucket of cold water is my go to....

clay bar still be needed if you ever want to clay your wheels...tight areas on the car....

I enjoy watching videos more than looking at pictures so I can see what the detailer actually does!
