BMW M5 Prepared For Winter

The BMW M5, an iconic performance sedan, was first introduced in 1986. The first iteration of the vehicle, the 1980 M535i was a hand built 535i with a modified M1 engine, the fastest production sedan of its time. The E60 M5, shown here, was introduced in 2005 and is the world's first production sedan to pair a V10 engine with a 7 speed sequential manual gearbox. Like the initial M535i, the E60 M5 was also the world's fastest production sedan at the time of its release.

This particular M5 finished in Platinum Gray Metallic is usually stored outdoors, so winter preparation was a necessity. Typical waxes can break down in hash winter weather, so a good weatherproof sealant was needed. After a one-stage paint correction to remove surface imperfections, we proceeded to apply two layers of Zaino Z-2 PRO show car polish.  Z-2 PRO produces exceptional levels of shine, gloss, reflectivity, clarity and depth, and locks in those optical qualities for months, thanks to its sophisticated system of synthetic polymeric-based protection.

3M Paint Protection Film and Window Tint applied to 2015 BMW 535i

This Dark Graphite Metallic 2015 535i M Sport came to us after a trip through Europe with the BMW European Delivery experience. With BMW European Delivery, the vehicle is ordered, in this case from BMW of South Atlanta, then the customer plans their trip, and picks up the vehicle at the legendary BMW Welt in Munich, Germany. After picking up the vehicle the customer takes it on its first spin across the famed Autobahn, chooses from five Driving Adventure packages, indulges at world-class hotels, and then meets the vehicle back home at the end. Upon arriving back home, this 5 Series came here to have its windows tinted and paint protection film applied.

We applied 3M Scotchgard Pro Series Paint Protection Film to the front bumper, partial hood, partial fenders, this is commonly known as a "bikini kit". We also applied the film to the mirrors. This clear, self-healing, urethane film protects against scratches, stains, and chips. Engineered to not yellow over time, 3M Scotchgard Pro Series is virtually invisible and is the perfect choice for protecting high-impact areas of your vehicle. The windows on this vehicle were tinted with 3M Color Stable 35 window film. 3M Color Stable is a revolutionary nano-carbon polyester film that provides an incredible look, amazing color stability, and is non-metallized to ensure no signal interference. Color Stable 35 rejects 40% of solar energy and 99% of UV radiation and reduces glare by 56%.

LLumar ATC 40% applied to 2015 Subaru WRX

The Subaru WRX, a performance version of the Impreza sedan, sits between the Impreza and the rally-ready WRX STI in the Subaru model range. Since the early 90's, the Impreza's variations have been world-renown rally cars. Even before the introduction of the Impreza, Subaru had a firm grip on the rally racing scene with its larger mid-size legacy, but the Impreza chassis has been the most successful of the lot winning several championship titles including three consecutive WRC (World Rally Car) constructors' titles from 1995-1997. In 2011 a modified third-generation WRX STI achieved a lap time of 7:55 on the Nürburgring, setting a world record for a 4-door car, faster than even the Porsche Panamera Turbo, the fastest production car at the time.Being such a versatile vehicle with a rich history, the WRX is sought after by many.

We applied LLumar ATC 40, a premium dyed window film that rejects thirty-three percent of solar energy, reduces glare by fifty-two percent, and allows in 43% of visible light. This window tint, as many do, also blocks ninety-nine percent of harmful ultraviolet radiation, effectively protecting your skin and the interior materials of your vehicle from damage.

3M Scotchgard and LLumar CTX 30 Applied to 2014 Hyundai Azera Limited

A brand new car is a big investment, and any valuable item should be sufficiently protected. That's why Mike brought in his 2014 Hyundai Azera, with less than 400 miles on the odometer, to have window tint and paint protection film (clear bra) applied by us here at Exclusive Detail and Tint.

Window film can vary from virtually transparent to full black. How dark you can tint your vehicle is dependent on the laws of the state in which the vehicle is registered; this Azera Limited is registered in South Carolina where the minimum visible light transmission level allowed is 28%. So in adherence to that law, we applied LLumar CTX 30 to the side and rear windows. LLumar CTX 30 is a nano-ceramic window film designed to protect your skin and interior materials from harmful UV radiation, cut glare, reject heat, and provide privacy without interfering with electronic signals as many lower-quality metallized films do.

For paint protection film, 3M Scotchgard Pro Series was applied to the front bumper and fenders, partial hood, headlights, and mirrors. This clear, self-healing, urethane film protects against scratches, stains, and chips. Engineered to not yellow over time, 3M Scotchgard is virtually invisible and is the perfect choice for protecting high-impact areas of your vehicle

Opti Coat Pro and LLumar CTX 40 Applied to 2014 Audi A7

The Audi A7 is a unique 4-door hatchback with a swooping coupe-like profile, commonly referred to as a "Sportback". This vehicle is one of the few members of the 4-door executive coupe segment birthed by the Mercedes-Benz CLS in 2004.

Finished in Moonlight Blue Metallic, this 2014 A7 3.0T Quattro came in to have LLumar CTX 40 window film applied to the side and rear windows; a full interior detail including leather cleaning and conditioning, shampooing of the floor mats, and a thorough cleaning of all interior surfaces; a full exterior detail including a hand wash, clay bar paint decontamination, multi-stage paint correction, and an application of Opti-Coat Pro paint sealant.

LLumar CTX 40 is is a signal-enabling film that uses Ceramatrix Nano-ceramic technology to offer all the UV and heat protection associated with traditional metallized automotive films without interfering with electronic devices. The CTX 40 film allows 40 percent visible light transmission, perfect for the thirty-five percent limit for vehicles registered in North Carolina. To assure a factory-spec fit the film patterns for each window are generated by the FilmDesign computer program then cut by a machine called a plotter. Having pre-cut film patterns eliminates the chance of your vehicle's glass being scratched by a knife used to cut the film on each window. The patterns are then heat-formed on the outside of the vehicle to fit the curvature of each window. During this process the film is protected by a clear liner to avoid any possible scratches from the heat-forming process. Afterwards the film liner is discarded and the adhesive side of the film is mounted to the inside of the window using a solution designed specifically for that purpose. Having your windows tinted not only provides you with privacy, but also blocks heat and harmful UV rays while significantly reducing glare.

Although this car had only 7,000 miles, it was in need of paint correction to remove moderate scratches. After washing the vehicle by hand and decontaminating the paint using a clay bar, we proceeded to start the multi-stage paint correction process involving different polishes for different levels of scratch severity. After restoring the paint to a proper gloss, we applied Opti-Coat Pro, a ceramic clear coat sealant that provides exceptional protection from scratching and chemical etching. At 2 microns thick, Opti-Coat Pro is more than 100x thicker than a typical wax and is therefore able to offer the superior level of protection that it does. While polishing we noticed some chips on the hood, likely caused by road debris. This is a first-hand example of why we strongly believe in protecting your vehicle with paint protection film.

XPEL Ultimate Full Front Wrap and Opti-Coat Pro Applied to 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

The seventh-generation 911 Carrera, known as the 991, is the latest iteration of the beautiful Carrera family of sports cars. The 4S is a more sporty expression of the vehicle and has a wider body than the stock 991 2S. This vehicle specifically is fitted with the Aerokit Cup package, reminiscent of the classic Carrera cup cars. The Aerokit Cup package features red brake calipers, the SportDesign front apron and rear ducktail spoiler, as well as a modified front spoiler lip and an additional fixed-wing profile on top of the rear ducktail spoiler to provide extra downforce. 

This stunning Porsche 911 Carrera 4S came to us with only 4,000 miles and a lot of scratches. Even brand-new vehicles can be covered in scratches resulting from improper wiping at the dealership. When cars are delivered they usually get wiped down with some form of spray wax and because of the sheer amount of vehicles, not much time can be devoted to each one and therefore not much care is given to the process.

To remove the scratches, we employed a three-stage paint correction process. After being corrected, the paint was sealed with Opti-Coat Pro, a premium paint sealant that is more than 100x thicker than a typical wax and offers superior protection from scratches and chemical etching. To further protect the vehicle, XPEL Ultimate paint protection film was applied to the entire hood, front apron, mirrors, headlights, and the inside of the door handles. XPEL Ultimate is a self-healing elastomeric polymer film that over time can eliminate light scratches and swirl marks from itself without you having to do anything. In addition, its low surface energy allows it to shed contaminants that would normally cause other films to discolor.

3M Paint Protection Film Applied to 2014 Corvette Stingray

The all-new Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray is the most powerful standard model Corvette ever, featuring 450 horsepower and 450 lb. ft. of torque. "Like the '63 Sting Ray, the best Corvettes embodied performance leadership, delivering cutting-edge technologies, breathtaking design and awe-inspiring driving experiences," said General Motors North America President Mark Reuss. "The all-new Corvette goes farther than ever, thanks to today's advancements in design, technology and engineering." The Stingray is definitely one of the most striking and technologically advanced vehicles on the road today and it was a pleasure to work on.

We applied 3M Scotchgard paint protection film to the front bumper, front fenders, and hood. Film application to these three areas is a common package and is also known as a "bikini kit" This clear, self-healing, urethane film protects against scratches, stains, and chips. Engineered to not yellow over time, 3M Scotchgard is virtually invisible and is the perfect choice for protecting high-impact areas of your vehicle.

Six Month Old SL550 Prepared for the Road

After selecting us multiple times to work on his Lamborghini Murcielago, Robert knew we were the ones for the job when he saw scratches all over his newly purchased six month old Mercedes-Benz SL550. Lamborghinis are fine vehicles but certainly aren't practical for everyday driving. With its V8 Bi-Turbo engine and luxurious refinement, the SL550 is the perfect grand tourer on the road as well as on the track.

At only six months old, this black Mercedes-Benz was already in need of paint correction. After washing the vehicle, we decontaminated the paint surface using detailing clay, then proceeded with three stages of paint correction. After being brought back to a flawless shine, the paint was sealed with Opti-Coat Pro, a premium sealant offering superior protection from scratching and chemical etching.

Nissan GT-R sealed with Opti-Coat Pro

At the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan unveiled the long-awaited successor to the legendary Skyline; the GT-R. With its robust performance and aggressive design, the GT-R is a true sports car. When "R-Mode Start" is used, the vehicle can go from 0-60 mph in just 2.7 seconds and 0-100 mph in 8.5 seconds. Nissan chief creative officer, Shirō Nakamura, has likened the GT-R to the giant "mecha" robots of the Gundam anime series. Nakamura stated: "The GT-R is unique because it is not simply a copy of a European-designed supercar; it had to really reflect Japanese culture."

Nissan developed a 6-stage paint process with double clear coat and chip-resistant paint for use in critical areas of the GT-R chassis, but with Opti-Coat Pro, the entirety of the painted surfaces gain exceptional protection. With a thickness of 2 microns, Opti-Coat Pro is more than 100x thicker than a typical wax and is better able to protect your vehicle's paint from scratching and chemical etching.

Ram 1500 Tinted, Sealed, and Protected

Seeking the ultimate protection for his new Ram 1500 4x4 Limited, Alan came to our shop to have his truck's windshield tinted, paint sealed, and front surfaces covered with paint protection film, also known as clear bra. The truck was previously tinted at the dealership but tint was only applied to the side and rear windows. We applied LLumar Air 80, a virtually transparent film, to the windshield. While still letting through seventy-eight percent of light, this film reduces solar energy transmission by forty-three percent, glare by thirteen percent, and rejects ninety-nine percent of ultraviolet radiation. The paint was sealed with Opti Coat Pro, a two micron thick ceramic clear coat sealant that protects your vehicle's painted surfaces from scratches and chemical etching. This sealant performs exceptionally well, as it is more than 100x thicker than a typical wax. To protect the paint even more, we applied 3M Scotchgard paint protection film to the front bumper, front fenders, and hood. This clear, self-healing, urethane film protects against scratches, stains, and chips. Engineered to not yellow over time, 3M Scotchgard is virtually invisible and is the perfect choice for protecting high-impact areas of your vehicle.

Opti-Coat applied to Black Honda Ridgeline

Any new vehicle is a valuable investment and should be protected as such, cars and trucks alike. Tom wanted the best for his new black Honda Ridgeline, so he chose to have us apply Opti-Coat Pro to the vehicle. Black vehicles show up paint damage, such as scratches and chips, a lot more clearly than lighter paint varieties and therefore require more maintenance to be kept in proper condition. Applying Opti-Coat helps to lessen the need for constant upkeep by forming a protective barrier over your vehicle's painted surfaces; it is basically a thicker, stronger, second layer of ceramic clear coat. At 2 microns, Opti-Coat Pro is about 100x thicker than a common wax and offers vastly superior protection against scratching and chemical etching.

Nano Ceramic Window Film Applied to 2014 Lexus LS460 F Sport

The LS has been the flagship sedan of the Lexus brand since 1989. In spring 2013 the F Sport variation of the LS 460 was introduced for the first time. This special edition has a lower ride height, revised air suspension and steering, and Brembo brakes that substantially improve the flagship's handling. The sedan also features a revised electronics package that includes five different drive modes. Special exterior styling cues include an exclusive front grille mesh pattern, unique front and rear lower bumper fascias, round LED foglamps, and 19-inch wheels in a dark graphite finish. Dr.Mac, a frequent customer of ours, decided that his latest vehicle needed a window film as premium as the car itself. Therefore, we applied Johnson Window Films InsulatIR IR45. This scratch resistant, nano ceramic film blocks ninety-nine percent of harmful ultraviolet radiation, rejects forty-six percent of solar energy, and reduces glare by fifty-three percent.  Be sure to visit our tint page for more information about pricing, tint types, and things to consider before tinting your vehicle.

BMW 328i Tinted with LLumar CTX 30

This BMW 328i X-Drive had LLumar CTX 30, our most popular line of film, applied to its rear and side windows. The LLumar CTX series is a signal-enabling film that uses Ceramatrix Nano-ceramic technology to offer all the UV and heat protection associated with traditional metallized automotive films without interfering with electronic devices. The CTX 30 film allows thirty percent visible light transmission, perfect for the twenty-seven percent limit for vehicles registered in South Carolina, such as this one. Before purchasing window film, be sure of the restrictions put in place by your vehicle’s state of registration.

Tesla Model S Cleaned, Refreshed, and Protected

Clean

We started the cleaning process on the exterior of the vehicle by hand-washing it indoors. Indoor washing lessens the chance of any foreign debris landing on the vehicle and being dragged along the paint, potentially resulting in scratches. The Model S also received a full interior detail consisting of cleaning the leather, upholstery, and all other surfaces inside the vehicle.

Refresh

This particular vehicle had previously been through automated carwashes and was covered in small hairline scratches, to remove these scratches and other paint imperfections, such as swirl marks, we employed a paint protection process that consists of multiple polishing stages. The paint was first treated using a compound designed to remove heavy scratches while also providing a glossy finish. Afterwards, we treated the paint with another polish designed to remove lighter scratches and produce a mirror-like finish.

Protect

The largest portion of this job was protection. We applied window tint, paint protection film, and a paint sealant. LLumar CTX 40 was applied to the side and rear windows, this scratch-resistant ceramic film blocks 99% of UV rays and 60% of visible light without interfering with cellular signals as other metallized films do. All our window films come with a lifetime manufacturer's warranty. We sealed the paint with Opti Coat Pro At 2 microns, this ceramic clear coat  sealant is about 100x thicker than typical waxes and therefore offers superior protection against scratching and chemical etching. Our last protective layer was XPEL Ultimate paint protection film. we applied the film to all front surfaces of the vehicle including the entire hood, headlights, bumper, front fenders, and mirrors. This film is clear and is guaranteed to not stain over time because its low surface energy sheds contaminants that would cause discoloration. XPEL Ultimate also contains elastomeric polymers that enable it to heal itself from swirl marks and other fine scratches. This film comes with a 10 year manufacturer's warranty.

A Tale Of Two Orange Corvette's and One Paint Sealant

Seven years ago Mike bought a Corvette C6 and wanted it to look better than it did on the show room floor. He called me and asked if I had ever heard of a product called Zaino. Fortunately for me I had not only heard of it but was among few detailers who were using the product. At that time the manufacturer of the product frowned on detailers using the product as it was marketed towards an elite audience of DIYer’s.

We scheduled the job to be done at his house with Mike inviting four of his Corvette buddies over to witness the event (Corvette owners are nuts). Well after several hours and four applications of Z2 and Z5 (each application requires a cure time with a meticulous application) I received the thumbs up and booked a few more jobs.

Zaino has been voted the World’s Best Car Polish among some stiff competition. It is designed to be used on clear-coat and regular single stage finishes. This product produces a mile- deep finish with tough and long lasting protection, the trade marked Ultra-Guard UV Sunscreen Shield is remarkable. Zaino achieves this by means of the wonder of chemically engineered interlocking polymers.    

Mike recently acquired a Corvette Z06 coated in Inferno Orange Metallic and the cycle of making his Corvette paint drip wet has hit the reset switch. Both cars are shown below.

 

A Different Look For This BMW 335i

Sometimes life gives us great challenges and we need a picker upper. Well a dear client of ours needed just that recently while going through some health issues her husband bought her this BMW 335 to distract her in some ways and to show her how much he cared for her in other ways.

We had the privilege of tinting the windows of the car, while the car was here she asked us about additional custom work for her car to include some aftermarket wheels. I informed her that manufactures went through great care to engineer the wheels for each car and changing those wheels is never my first preference if the only concern is color, which it was in this instance. I was able to suggest she change the color of the wheels she already had and maintain the engineering integrity of her wheels. We opted to have the wheels powder coated and she was thrilled with the results. Please see the images below.

700 Mile Hyundai Sonata F20 Turbo

Scott brought us his less than 800 miles, 2013 Hyundai Sonata F20Turbo today to have us apply a paint sealant. Scott is our kind of a guy a bit anal retentive and obsessive about his car, I popped the trunk and it looked like he was operating a mobile detail service out of there. He had all kinds of microfiber towels and detailing paraphernalia. As we talked it was clear that Scott had also done a great deal of research on how to properly clean a car. This kind of discussion is usually held with a guy who has just bought an exotic car; yeah the kind that could be liquidated and buy a house so I pay tribute to Scott who bought a car that he could afford and one that he could afford to care for.

To facilitate Scotts need for a premium grade paint sealant we choose Chemical Guys Jet Seal 109, one of several paint sealants that we utilize to provide added protection to the clear coat of cars we polish and seal. Below is the manufacturer’s description of the product:

Jet Seal 109 is a unique anti-corrosion sealant developed to provide the finest finish and protection available for paint, fiberglass, aluminum, chrome, alloy metals and other substrates.  Developed exclusively for the aerospace industry, Jet Seal 109 was engineered to provide the ultimate slick durable finish and multi layerable protection from the harshest environmental elements. Jet Seal 109 is now available for automobiles in the same nano tech ultra durable consistency. This ability to chemical bond at a nano-tech scale allows the products to deliver superior results never before achieved from regular chemical formulations. Jet Seal 109 is to be applied in 2 coats to assure proper coverage. Jet Seal 109 will not crack, fade, discolor or peel and can be used on all chrome, polished aluminum, carbon fiber, carbon fiber/fiberglass composites, glass, fiberglass, gel coated fiberglass and even painted plastic.  Jet Seal 109 delivers the finest shine and protection under the sun. Jet Seal 109 bonds with the exterior of your auto giving it a mirror-like wet finish that is virtually impenetrable. Jet Seal 109 is not a wax, polish or Teflon. 

Well needless to say Scott was thrilled when we pulled up and saw his car. After all these years I am still puzzled that we can take a car that was just delivered brand new to a client and improve on its appearance while adding protection to its paint. Below is a gallery of images showing off the job we did.

 

Show Car Detail for Corvette C5

The Corvette C5 was a major change from its previous generation. Whereas the C4 was an attempt to straighten out the curves of its predecessor, the C5 now had a more rounded and graceful appearance that helped to recapture some of the aggressive looks of the C3 without compromising aerodynamics. This specific vehicle also has some aftermarket enhancements including upgraded wheels, a mesh grille, blacked out turn signals,and different emblems.

This car received a Show Car Detail which includes all the interior and exterior steps of the Deluxe Detail but adds on extra stages of paint polishing, polishing of the wheels and other metal surfaces (such as the exhaust tips), clay bar cleaning, and a paint sealant to lock in the shine for up to 9 months.

Black Maserati GranTurismo S Detailed

The S version of the Maserati GranTurismo was unveiled in 2008 at the Geneva Motor show and features a 4.7 liter V8 engine rated at 434 hp and a robotic 6-speed sequential semi-automatic transmission. The GranTurismo S was only available in the North American market for the 2009 model year.

This vehicle came to us plagued with water spots and swirl marks from prior improper detailing. These problems were not severe to the point of permanency and in the end we were able to achieve a showroom quality paint finish.

We started our polishing process with our polish of choice; a concentrated, specially milled product designed for the removal of scratches, swirls, and oxidization on scratch-resistant clear coats. These clear coats were put into production in 2003 and are made up of nanoscopic ceramic particles that result in an extensively cross-linked paint finish that is more resistant to damage. The problem with these strong clear coats is that when a defect does occur it is difficult to correct, which is why we use only the highest quality products to resolve these problems. 

Upon completion of stage 1 polishing we proceeded to use a finishing polish that is made with a very finely ground abrasive powder that leaves no marring or surface haze and formulated specifically for assembly line use. Foreign luxury automakers use this product on their brand new vehicles to remove overspray and refine the newly cured paint finishes and it is very hard to find in the U.S.

After the polishing process we applied a paint sealant used by the aerospace industry to prevent sun damage, corrosion, and other issues. This sealant molecularly bonds with the paint to form a virtually impenetrable layer over the paint that locks in the effects of polishing for up to 9 months. 

Below are pictures of the final product.
