BMW E39 M5 3 Day Enhancement

Hi all,

Here we have the glorious BMW E39 M5 from back in the Summer, one of my personal favourites. This vehicle was booked in for a 3 day enhancement, which consisted of a 2 stage machine polish aiming to achieve 85-90% correction + spot wet sand/correction to a nasty scrape on the offside rear door. Alongside an interior protection detail.

The usual Refined Details safe wash process was performed. Next up was the clay barring to fully decontaminate the vehicle.

I got started with the scrape on the offside rear door. Wet sanded first.

Shame about the scratch on the top of the above photo – down to the primer, which was unfortunate .

Now it was time to lock-in the freshly corrected paintwork with 2 layers of a nanotechnology sealant and a colourcharged carnauba wax. All the other exterior surfaces were protected with their appropriate products, as was the case on the interior.

30hrs later, I am proud to present to you this E39 M5…

The Results

A real pleasure bringing this modern classic back to life.

Thank you for looking and reading as always!
