    TWD - BMW 135i M Sport - Stage 1 Paint Correction & Engine Bay Clean

    Car: 2009 BMW E87 135i

    Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction & Engine Bay Detail

    Comments:
    - Despite being black, the car was in pretty good condition
    - As usual, there were minor swirls all over the paint and holograms all over the car.
    - Wheels were caked in brake dust so the OEM gloss black painted wheels were a matte brown colour.
    - The car was seen at our Dyno Day the following day, and was absolutely gleaming! Needless to say, the owner was very happy with the result.
    - The E87 has excellent lines for giving that liquid looking finish and this was no exception.

    I didnít have time to take many shots, but check out the before, during and after photos below:

    DURING - 50/50s (notice the holograms removed in the 2nd half and the water beading on the air intake)
