2015 BMW M3 - Mineral Gray - New Car Prep - Modesta BC04 - Next Level Coating

We received this brand new 2015 BMW M3 in the best possible way - directly from the customer immediately after it was delivered. Even better the dealer did not touch anything - all the wrapper was still on the car! Note: If you can ask for the delivery of your new car in this form the shop handling your new car prep, coating, and/or paint protection film installation is ahead of the game. The only thing better than this situation would be that the customer would have flat bedded the car to us.

Take a look at how we feel a new car should be delivered.

Here is a list of products used on the interior.

1Z einszett ****pit
Leather Master Strong Cleaner
Leather Master Barrier
Auto Finesse Crystal Glass Cleaner
1Z einszett Gummi Pflege Stift Rubber Care Stick
Metro Jumbo Vac n Blow
Uber Leather and Carpet Brush
Uber Microfiber Towels
Uber Microfiber Applicator Pad


Products used on the exterior:

Adam's New Car Wash
Uber Clay Bar
Sonax Fall Out Remover
NanoSkin Tar Solvent
NanoSkin AutoScrub Mitt
Sonax EX0406
Modesta Primer 01A - Modesta Pro installer only
Modesta BC04 - Modesta Pro installer only
Adam's Super VRT
Auto Finesse Crystal Glass Cleaner

Tools used
Metro Jumbo Vac n Blow
Uber Leather and Carpet Brush
Uber Microfiber Towels
Uber Microfiber Applicator Pad
Uber Quick Detail MF Towels
Uber All Purpose MF Towels
Griot's 3 inch Random Orbital Polisher
Rupes BigFoot LHR 21ES Random Orbital Polisher
Rupes BigFoot LHR 15ES Random Orbital Polisher
Uber Buffing Pads
Defelsko Paint Meter
Fenix TK35
2 Grit Guard Buckets with Caddies
Adam's Firehose Nozzle
Metro Air Force Blaster

The ideal situation for us would be to have every new car delivered to us this way - all wrapped up from the factory. No dealer installed paint imperfections.











Here we go, nothing like removing the wrapper off a brand new car!

Next up into the wash bay for a nice wash - pre soak, wash,decon, clay, wheels and tires

Looking quite nice after a the paint prep - Mineral Gray M4 in the background ....


Modesta Primer P-01A applied now we wait for the 3-4 hour cure time prior to Modesta BC-04



After the BC-04 is installed we cure the paint under heat lamps.

Final shots of the exterior






Outside shots - Hard Candy Shine! Some amazing depth, gloss, and clarity after the proper prep work and Modesta!


















Hope you enjoyed this one as much as we did.

That hard candy shell that Modesta leaves after a proper install is incredible.

Does Modesta provide a warranty like Optimum? What's your opinion as the installer for the coatings? Have you had any problems with any of them?

Doing research for future new car purchases, kids means I can't get out there to detail like I want to.

Also, the M3 looks incredible but I'm pretty sure you didn't need me to tell you that.

Modesta will not come with a warranty unless the installer gives you one.

Optimum has a warranty but please read it, I warranty both for my clients provided that I maintain the car after the coating is installed.

Modesta is a bit pricier too from when I checked it out. Love the gloss, but it put it out of my range with the amount of additional correction I needed.

I just wish my imaginary M3 would stay that clean for at least like 10 seconds after a Modesta application...
