My New Car Prep Process: BMW 550

Congratulations#8230;you are in the for a brand new car that you plan on care of for the remaining time you own the but how should you go about that?  is a process that I do for all my clients new and what I tell them need to do, or have me do, in order to that car looking like new for as as they own the car#8230;

First first, DO NOT allow the dealer to the new car prep!  9 times out of 10 the dealership will (improperly) use a rotary and fill the paint with and buffer trails which require much more to restore the clarity and gloss the paint via proper polishing

Now that you have brought the and it#8217;s in your garage, time to get things organized and get plan together on how you want to the car its first true detail of its Here is my process step by (I will list it at the end as well pictures.)

Step one: and tires

First thing you to do is pre-rinse the wheels, tires and wells in order to remove any dirt and debris.  Then, get a degreaser like Meguiar#8217;s Super and spray liberally onto the and wheel wells and allow to and break up the grime and oils.  that is working, clean the from the inside out using a of brushes for different areas.

  I have three brushes I a long wheel face EZ Detail brush for the wheel and a skinny lug nut and tight area At this point the wheels be caked with brake as its a new car, but if they are, use like Chemical Guys Wheel Gel or P21S Wheel Gel as are safe for all wheels and pH balanced.  Do wheel individually and rinse thoroughly!

Step two: the car

After the wheels are done and wash the entire car with Dawn or Chemical Guys wash as both products are to remove any surface oils, or grime leaving you with a surface to work on for the remaining Work from top to bottom and use the method to remove as much from the car as possible to reduce the for towel drying (less Use the high quality Waffle drying towels from DI to dry the

  Usually two will dry any sized car the right technique.

Step Claybar treatment

After off all the loose and surface debris the paint, its time to make it smooth and remove the deep embedded dirt from the You would think that you have to do this step on a new but you would be surprised by the amount of in the paint from either the or boats shipment method to get the car to the or from driving the car around the on test drives or whatever

  I use the DI fine grade clay Meguiar#8217;s Last Touch or ONR mix for lubricant.  After finishing the process, its time to re-wash the car or at do an IPA wipedown to remove the residue the clay step.

five:  Polishing the paint

Did you think that a new car had to maximum coming from the paint because its a new car?  If so, you are wrong!  is so much more potential to more clarity and gloss a new paint job just by using the pads and polishes.

  In this I used Menzerna 85rd and a polishing pad on the PC .  It was a little hard to but you can see a difference below in the fact the lid has been polished and the rear has not been touched at this

Step six:  Paint cleansing

Step seven: the paint

Step eight: protection work

First up, the car in all cracks and crevices so that you vacuum, you are getting everything in one instead of having dust and fall back on a just floor.  Work from top to just like you would on the for a wash.  Using a product 303 Aerospace. you want to protect all plastics, vinyl and rubber.

  303 will not leave a sticky or attract a lot of dust, and it also a low matte look.  It will the appearance of whatever it is applied on as Next, address the leather a conditioner like Leatherique or guys leather conditioner.

  are easy on and off and will leave the new, not greasy.  Nobody to get into a greasy car!  Go over the entire interior your dry microfiber towel and down all surfaces to ensure no and everything is drying flat.
