Recently completed a pair of E9x platform M3's. Combined the two in one write up to share with you all! Their descriptions are with their groups of photos. Check em out!!


2008 BMW Alpine White Coupe

A supercharged, Alpine white on Novilla Red M3 Coupe came to me after sitting outside for most of this brutal northeast winter. It will be receiving a full correction in the spring months, but this detail was done to get this vehicle clean and protected again, and it sure needed it! Putting 500+ whp, it needed to look as good as it goes!

IronX breaking down fallout on the vehicle, after the wash process. It turns purple when doing so

2009 Black M3 Convertible

This vehicle came to me as a new purchase and was "Clean" from delivery. However it was in need of a proper correction and damaged/faded clear bra removal as you will see in the pics. This M3 Hardtop convertible was looking above standard after it was properly detailed and "brought back to life." In it's new owner hands, I dont see this vehicle ever approaching that condition again!

Nicely done. GL with the business. Amazing at all the nice cars and BMWs in general that need paintwork.

I agree with that, some of the factory standards have fallen off the charts and a lot of the vehicles need work. I've done 2010 and 2011 cars, right off the boat needing work, it's unfortunate really and surprisingly more common in the higher end vehicles. Thanks for the kind words!

Thank you! The mile deep gloss was much more appealing in person, and the owner was ecstatic!

Pa isn't too far from NoVa :)
