Jet Black X3, 535, X535d, S5, E63 AMG, BRZ and VW TDI wagon

Our 14th ft86. One step w hd polish and OG.

.



X3 full correction and OG. Client took a few pictures when he arrived home.

Paint was corrected with M205 and the Megs MF finishing pad, this is our latest combo and it rocks with the Rupes Bigfoot 21 or a dynabrade setup. Finished with HD polish using LC white flat pads using both machines again. The Rupes with its 21mm stroke had no issues finishing out on Jet Black. Multi IPA wipes followed by Opti-guard on paint, trim, wheels and glass sans the windshield which received Wolf's glass guard.

Here are some comments from the owner left on my Facebook page:

I just got back my wife's Jet Black BMW X3 from Peachstate Detail. Our BMW dealership had washed it and swirled it pretty well. I thought the paint was permanently damaged. Contacted Mr. Burnworth at Peachstate and dropped it off for two days. When I picked it up, it looked like glass...I could not believe my eyes. Drove it back home and my wife's first response was two screams followed by "I have never seen a car look this perfect!". Mr. Burnworth was beyond professional. He worked with our schedule which was very important because we live 3 hours away. The moment I dropped the X3 off with him, I had full trust. His detailing station is immaculately clean. The car was stored inside the entire time and delivered without swirls...believe my I checked for them for hours! His work is top-notch....A+. My only regret is that he is not my neighbor...then he could detail my car every month!
