BMW F10 M5! - Singapore Grey Hello Detailing Fans! Today I've got something special for you! The All-new BMW M5! This is the F10 M5, and its in hot demand at the moment. Not many at all knocking around and BMW have put back a LOT of people's orders! I was lucky enough to have this car for a thorough test drive, thanks to the owner. I am a huge BMW M car fan, and have been since I was younger, so to have the chance to do this and drive for quite a while was fantastic. The engine is a peach, relentless torque and a fabulous sound track to match it too which I wasn't expecting due to the V10 being replaced with the V8 BiTurbo S63 engine. The proper dual clutch transmission is brilliant! The exhaust pops on downshift are awesome! A little more on the car… BMW M5 – F10 On June 15. 2011.

Concerns have been raised regarding the steering feel and weight, however the car has, once again, received overall praise for being the best performing super saloon currently on the market; an accolade retained throughout the five model generations.    The car was booked in for a Swissvax New Car Protection Detail I'm going to make this a quick on, if I don't, id never do the write up! I've got so many cars waiting for write-ups its silly! On to some pictures! The car after I picked it up So started off with the wheels Cleaned with Wheel woolies! Then onto the door shuts and intricate areas for a proper clean. Then the car was pre-soaked in Citrus based degreaser to break down the heavy traffic film that had accumulated. This was then rinsed off and then the car was washed with our safe two-bucket method and huge sheepskin wash mitt courtesy of Dodo Juice Now it was time for decontaminating the paintwork in three stages to remove pollutants in the paint, which were not removed from just a wash. Tar spots, industrial fall out and iron filings all removed. The final stage for decontamination… claying. Once the had been washed and decontaminated the car was rinsed again and dried with our Super plush drying towels and forced air to shift the water from panel gaps etc. Once the car was properly clean we started with out paint cleaner to prepare the paint for Swissvax Shield and Swissvax Crystal Rock! Shield Going on! Thanks to Phil @ Meguiar's, Autoglym, Collinite, Insta Finish, Poorboy's, Dodo Juice, ValetPro, Einszett, Chemical Guys, Eurow, Lake, Kestrel, RainX - the best car care - Shinearama for quickly tagging this new pot of Shield onto an existing order at such short notice! Shield curing! Whilst the first coat of wax was curing I tended to some other details on the car. Exhaust before Exhaust after Now time for the icing on the cake! Swissvax Crystal Rock! Swissvax Crystal Rock curing here The Wheels were sealed with Swissvax Autobahn whilst the Crystal Rock was curing. The glass was polished in and out and sealed, as well as the engine bay. Time was marching on so didn't get to take as many shots as I would like. Some finished shots now! One criticism to BMW though, a bit too much orange peel on a car of this stature and value. Mind you, people like me and people who properly appreciate detailing and spot things like this are in a small niche! I am sure I will get a few wet sand bookings to sort things like this! Beautiful interior Now, Some pictures after the car was delivered after some miles put on the car! I also had to swing by the owner's house on the way to the owner's place of work so it's not "studio fresh" but the pictures are still well worth sharing I think! Last one!! I almost forgot this… I visited another M5 F10 owner on the way back… here's a pic of them together! Looking lovely in Le Mans Blue!! thanks so much for checking out another write up! It's been a while since the last one! I've just checked and I have done 29 cars since my last write up. I do tend to tweet and Facebook a photo of what cars I'm working on so if you want to have a look day to day feel free!!
