    Haven't been able to keep the M3 in the condition i usually do due to weather and the work outside the house.
    Managed to get a few spare hours today and gave it a wash (as soon as i started it pi$$ed down, but i was in a such a mood i carried on regardless) :lol:

    Rinsed with my DI vessel, then took it inside for a dry down.

    Had to get the SRP out for a few marks i couldn't shift whilst cleaning, and had to clay bar the windows. There was a strange film on them i couldn't remove with ceriglass, i think a combination of the weather and screenwash had taken it's toll.

    Applied Gtechniq G1 on all the windows, first time i've been able to keep it dry to cure overnight thanks to the new garage - this is the first mini detail i've done in there :)

    Cleaned/dressed the engine bay with carpro perl, and applied gummi pflege to the rubber.

    Didn't dress the tyres, as i haven't got the front of the garage sorted yet and it can get a bit muddy, so didn't waste my time.

    I like em, seen a few cars with them as standard. Just a nice touch.

    Nice one for the tip, I've been using bilt hamber surfex HD on them, but they could be cleaner. Will give it a try

    Looks great and the little details overall I think improve the look , the steering wheel and mats:thumbsup:

    Personally I think the carbon gearlever and surround is slightly too much but overall super

    Needs an MPE poking out the back to complete the package :cool:

    That steering wheel would make a decent tyre for most cars..

    Lovely looking colour that, such a satisfying feeling getting a car back to as the gods intended it to be

    Great work in your new man cave mate, now all you need in there is a fridge for cold beers and a deck chair to sit back and admire your work.

    Christ and I thought mine was dirty. I never got my 4x4's that muddy. Looks epic clean. Also all that mud and yet the wheels looked quite clean still (thanks to those lovely gold bits).:thumbsup:
