BMW E92 335d Full Machine Correction with Valentines Concours

Today I had a very nice E90 BMW 335d booked in for a full machine correction. The owner informed me that the car was covered in holograms and swirls, even though the last owner had allegedly “cared” for the vehicle.Unfortunately not.

The package performed on this vehicle was Platinum.
