Paint Correction: 2008 Sapphire Black M5

Purchased this car in early April from a dealer. Needless to say, the hack detailing job they did was not up to my standards. Deep scratches and light swirling on every panel. Finally got the time to give it to one of the best detailers in the Chicago area.

A full, 20-hour paint correction commenced.

I'll let the results speak for themselves.

Enjoy

Good work! my only tip would be to take the wheels off, scrub the wheel wells and brakes. It actually makes a nice difference.
