    Big M-Series in Carbon Black

    So a mulit-vehicle repeat customer of mine waited patiently for a deal to be had on a beautiful 2017 BMW X5M from California. It's an amazing car in a very cool dark blue metallic called Carbon Black Metallic. It lights up in the sun and goes dark in the shadows. Matches his early 2003 M5 too!

    Overall the car was pretty clean but swirled up as expected for having just under 40k miles. Not wanting to go crazy on correction given it's a daily driver and ultimate family vehicle that will last a while, we decided to move forward with my Premium Enhancement Polish and a dual layer ceramic coating including paint and wheels. Overall, it turned out extremely well with darn near a full correction in many areas and perhaps a good 90% reduction in the deeper marks that aren't worth chasing to perfection.

    Polished with both a Flex 3401 and XCE with Orange L.C Flat and Hybrid Force Pads using CarPro Essence. Coating wise it's a dual layer combo of UK 3.0 with SiC on top. GYEON Q2 Rim finished up the wheels.

    I love how the color changes even in the shadow let alone as the sun sets. It's called Carbon for a reason.
