BMW 3 series 335d M-Sport Coupe Hi guys, it’s been a while since my last right up, it’s been so busy at Miglior I’ve found it hard to get time to put together the write ups! The good thing is that I have still been taking plenty of photos! Anyway on with the job. This BMW 335d came to Miglior for a lot to be done: Full Alloy wheel refurbish & Colour change Dent and Scuffed door to sort Scuffed front bumper Enhancement detail/correction in some areas New centre caps Interior Leather detailing Paint Wheel bolts! So a lot of time was needed to bring this car back to life! It started out life as a beautiful and rare car, having BMW individual leather and exterior paintwork. It must have had a tough life up to now. This is how the car was dropped off. Buffer trails on the boot and the rest of the car! It looks like someone has had the scouring pad out to remove something off the paintwork here In the early morning sun we can see the full extent of the damage to the car. This is the dent/scuff we will have to sort out. The centre of the dent looks as if it might need paint, we'll see. Washing marks and swirls on the lower panels. Random scratches on the front. Probably from bushes and careless washing. The wheels were looking a little tired and were full of kerb marks. Kerb Marks The interior was looking worse for wear too. Inside the unit, we see more kerb marks So the wheels were removed ready for their refurbishment. This gave me chance to sort out the scuff on the front bumper. Painted and lacquered Dried and ready for final prep and clean up! Once scuff was done it was time to get on with the interior. Before During Now, remember that scuff and dent on the passenger door, well here we are taking it out. There was some insulation above the dent so I couldn’t get to it down the window slot so I had to work it thru a hole in the end of the door. With the wheels still off I had chance to get the wheel bolts sorted. Looking a little sorry for themselves. Cleaned, and dried ready for painting First coat of primer. When the primer coats had dried, it was time for the first dust coat of paint. And all done Now, the wheels were ready to be refitted. We also supplied and fitted two new rear tyres for the customer. Absolutely stunning shadow chrome finish. With everything being tidied up it would be stupid to refit the old, tatty centre caps so four brand new genuine centre caps were fitted. The wheels now were refitted to the car and the car was taken outside for its wash. The car was washed with our two bucket method and fully decontaminated. The car was moved into the unit still wet to be dried inside. Now the car is spotlessly clean, I can start work on the paintwork and get it into shape. Remember the scuff on the door where we took the dent out? Well...here it is. The main scuff looked like it might need some paint. It has slightly fractured the clear coat but I was about to find out how much. At all costs, the owner wanted to avoid having to paint the door, purely for paint match issues. I started off with a mid to aggressive combination to see how I got on. I persevered with this until I got this... So, the majority of the mark gone, but still evidence of an accident so out came the sanding paper. I wet sanded the area in three stages to get the best possible results and clarity. After this the paint was also polished in three stages for the same reasons. This left this... There was a slight line left by the incident but nothing could be done about this, it was also barely visible. I worked around the rest of the car producing great results in the time I had to finish the car. The rest of the car was in dire need of attention! Once the polishing was done, the car was given an IPA wipe down then the paint was cleansed again. Here I am applying the first of three coats of sealant on the car Wheel sealant being applied Looking a lot sharper now! Now the sealant has been buffed off, the car is really starting to shine! All the little extra details were completed when the sealant was curing. Please enjoy the after photos! Thanks for reading!!
