2010 BMW 335 I Coupe

This car came to us with swirls and huge haze marks. The customer called me upset about what a local detailer recently did to his new car. What the detailer did was rip thru the car in 3 hours with a compound and glaze. i believe this was not necessary at all especially on a new car. Damage done. The car was fixed with M105 - SIP - PO85RD
Last Step = Swissvax Blau Weiss

What was done -
Exterior

- Wheels were prepped with Sonax Wheel Cleaner and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down
- Wheel wells were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed
- Dried
- Paint inspected and measured

- Tires dressed with Swissvax Pneu

Thanks, Phil, now I'll be out 170 bones for the Blau Weiss :rofl: Great work and just out of curiosity, when you do a fine job like this, do you give special instructions for the wash and/or in-between care?

Blau Weiss is fun to work with. it smells like the fruit stand at the local super market. i would guess cantelope is the main scent? it goes on pretty easy & take off is pretty easy as well. it seems to be a very soft wax, i prefer the more hard paste waxes though.

im not sure how long this wax lasts for but maybe phil can answer that.

if you use the right amount of wax you can easily get 30 cars from one single jar.

ive done about 25 applications so far & there is still a bunch of wax left . i dont apply a thin layer of wax, i prefer to use a medium coating. not too thick, just the right amount of wax.

i will probably get about 35 cars out of one jar.

when you break down what that costs per application the price doesnt seem too high.
