Hehe that's not what I meant, though. It just added considerable length to the page and I broke the mouse wheel going through it

LOL!

LEENA1, I believe that what diny means is if you could please remove my post from your quote, so it doesn't make the page too big with the same pictures and text in duplicate. Thanks!

This is a 1999 M5 with 268 000km on the clock and it really hasn't seen much love (in a detailers perspective, of course) until the day that Kleintje left the car with me when he went on Vacations to Seattle, so he could go crash a Ford Explorer against some fences

I set off outside on the 25th of December, to give the car a wash and clay it, so I could store it to continue on the next day, before the cold front would arrive to NL (we had negative temperatures everyday since then).

This is what I had ahead of me...
You missed a spot!





Freakin awesome job!

Let me know when YOU want to vacation in Seattle... I have a dirty CB M5 that could use some TLC too. I can provide all accommodations for you (and your girlfriend)!!!

I had seen this pics in another forum a couple or days ago and was completely amazed. I absolutely love oxford green, too bad it´s one of the few colours I haven´t seen an M5 in. Congrats on your detailing job man, I tried doing the same with my car with Meguiars products but it seems I need something else to get rid of the swirls.

Thanks for posting pics of the whole process, hope you do the same when you´re finished with yours.

Tiauguinho-

Thanks again for the great post. All we who love our beasts want to show them at their best!
I use Griot's products, and only Polish 3 and 4 (the mildest polish) over the entire car once, and only Polish 1 (the most aggressive) a couple of times in a specific area (door scratches). Moderate pressure, Porter Cable orbital on speed #3 (of 6).
Your input again appreciated!

One of the nicest jobs I have ever seen! I give this thread 5 stars.

Personally, I use Zymol products.
