New Car Prep and Glass Coating - BMW M3 Black Sapphire Metallic

2016 BMW M3 gets a new car prep and glass coating installation.

This brand new BMW M3 in Black Sapphire Metallic is coming in for a new car prep and Modesta Glass Coating. The customer brought us the car just the way we like it, a detailer's dream come true an untouched vehicle from the dealership with all the wrappings left on it just as the factory delivered it. Getting the car into your trusted detailer this way in most cases will save the detailer a lot of time correcting what the dealer may put in during a vehicle prep.

Our customer was very keen on a long lasting durable shine, so we suggested a glass coating, in this case we choose Modesta BC-05.
