    I won't rubble about how wonderful E63 is. I will only say that I love my car and it is being well appreciated by my entire family, which is why we've done over 5k miles in less than 6 months travelling nowhere in particular. Unfortunately during same period we collected more stone chips than you can shake a stick at. I could not have this continue and took a plunge for PPF. Front bumper, bonnet, wings, headlights and mirrors. Rest of the car is in for full wheels-off paint correction and gtechniq detailing, including wheels and engine bay.

    I was quite lucky to stumble upon Mike from Minutia Detailing in Croydon. Immediately likeable, he made me and my little son feel very welcome, showed us around his studio, talked thru what he does, which he clearly loves, and gave me time to take it all in and make decision. The rest is history :)

    E63 is now a work in progress and I'm pleased Mike is keeping me updated, which gives me an opportunity to share the process with you. All pictures are Mikes:

    Looks superb, not easy getting a white car to shine.

    Looking forward to more photos.

    I've gone down this slippery slope. When you get the car back you don't want to drive anywhere as it'll get dirty!

    It looks like a very thorough job :thumb:

    We had one of our cars done a month or so ago, and I was gutted to have to collect it and drive it home in the rain.

    These detailers would get done in half the time if they weren't taking photos of what they were doing every other minute!
