The BMW M3 was first treated to an AM APC, Powerful All Purpose Cleaner, wash. Sprayed over the body of the BMW, left to work then pressure washed off.

The engine only had a covering of some light dust and a few transit grease spots these again were removed easily with AM APC.

Next up was a coating of AM Foam to further clean the BMW during out contactless wash stages. Sprayed on and left to dwell for 10 minutes. Then Rinsed off. Luckily the temperatures managed to stay high enough that our pressure washer jet was not freezing up.

AM Wheels and Various brushes were used to tackle the M3 Wheels. But then the weather took a turn for the worst. so the photography was stopped till we managed to defrost the car inside. Out side in and out of the frosty spells we carried on with the two bucket method. Then the De iron, De tar and clay barring stages of our decontamination process.

Whilst the machining was being carried out we also raised the M3 to remove its wheels for a Gtechniq Wheels off Package bolt on. The wheels were prepped and adjusted ready for Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour. arches were also cleaned further and dressed.
