One of our finest projects to date. Over 60 hours of limitless decontamination, paint correction, detailing and video production saw this 2009 BMW M3 transform into one of the finest vehicles on the road. Every single surface was meticulously treated to restore and rejuvenate each element comprising the vehicle.
The pinnacle of German engineering, this M3 brings race technology to the streets – taking with it breathtaking design and an awe-inspiring high-revving 4.0L V8 engine. Paired with forged DPE RD wheels, Akraprovic exhausts and VRS aerodynamics, this M3 is one of the toughest, meanest looking cars to own the roads.
This video represents just a fraction of what goes on behind the scenes at Affinesse. We hope to document and share more of our work with you in the future.
– Three-stage decontamination
– Three-stage correction
– Opti-Coat Pro+ (3 Layers)
– Concours Nova Jet Layer
As presented. This car had been heavily washed with the brush at the autowash which resulted in a dull, matte white finish
With an engine tune and aftermarket Akrapovic exhaust, the paint was heavily contaminated
Washed and clayed, ready to start
The hood vents had signs of a previous detail – polish splatter everywhere and cheap dressing which had turned white. We steam cleaned these and restored their lustre with CarPro PERL. Left untreated, right treated.
Left untreated, right treated
Left untreated, right treated. The PERL has restored life into the rubber
Additional leftover polish and wax on the sunroof seal
Cleaned and treated
Before correction. The paint was fairly hard and had numerous RIDS, which required three stages of correction to perfect
The engine bay was steam cleaned and sealed with Concours Nova Jet on the paintwork and CarPro PERL on the plastics
The Akrapvoic exhaust tips were removed and individually polished. Opti-Coat Pro+ was applied to maintain the sheen.
VRS make some of the best aerodynamics for BMW – and come with a hefty price tag too. To protect this investment, we cleaned every section of the diffuser and coated it with Opti-Coat Pro+
Three layers of Opti-Coat Pro+ topped with Concours Nova Jet created some phenomenal beading.
These custom forged 3-piece RD wheels by DPE were comprehensively coated with Opti-Coat to ensure they stay clean and protected, especially with big AP Racing brakes.
Not a single moment felt like work while detailing this car and producing the video. An absolute dream to have in our studio and an even better joy to drive. If you would like to have your car featured in a film like this, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
