so i finally got around to detailing the 540i since i bought it in december....the previous owner did a pretty good job of upkeeping so there wasn't much needed in the way of paint correction.... there were some minor swirls on the hood/trunk/roof so i got those out... here's the process... 1 - washed with meguiars car wash 2 - used optimum compound on the hood/trunk/roof with a light cutting pad...with my PC on 2000 - buffed with microfiber towel.. 3 - applied a coat of Jeff's Werkstatt Prime with a finishing pad with my PC on 1500. 4 - let the above dry for about 45 mins then buffed with microfiber towel 5 - applied a coat of Jeff's Werkstatt Acrylic Jett by hand to entire car and wheels. 6 - let the above dry for about 45 mins and then buffed with a microfiber towel. 7 - windex on the all the windows. 8 - quick detailer on a rag on the trim (missed a few spots on some trim got it after i took the pics) 9 - applied meguiars endurance tire shine gel to the tires... 10 - drove out to the back of my neighborhood and took pics. 11 - whore pics of my freshly detailed car FTW! Entire process took me around 4 hrs....started at 7 this morning was done by 11:30.... now after i wash it next time i'll follow up with an application of Jeff's Werkstatt Acrylic Jett Trigger (spray wax) and since by then i'll have my water softener installed...i won't have to worry about water spotting! turned out nice! enjoy... WASSUP! CHECK OUT THAT REFLECTION! this is a cool shot Bavarian Motor Works another reflection shot....the werkstatt prime really brought out a nice deep shine!
