Barn find BMW M3 transformation by Auto Finesse

  visningar 375,848


When we get a call on an M car that's been sitting around you don't need to ask us twice if we want to have a bash at bringing it back to life. So here it is quite possibly one of the best examples of the BMW e46 M3 in the UK - well now at least.

Grab a cuppa, sit back and see how the team at the Detailing Academy spent the best part of a week getting this BMW e46 M3 looking better than the day it rolled out the dealership.

Quite honestly, I was surprised that the owner recognized his car after you work on it. I have never seen a similar work ever, and yes, you took it to another level; bravo!

Would had been faster and cheaper to just replace the clear coat
Danielle Pickering

Yeah of course, let’s get an original car and respray it? Replacing the clear coat means you get a car that looks like orange peel. This clear coat would of been flat and literally show car. This is the difference between I nice looking car and a sick car. Besides do you think they don’t flat your new clear? Shit lands in paint in the best booths and you my friend have proved you don’t have a clue.

Andrew4181975 11 dagar sedan
This is almost the exact spec as mine, but I knew better than to get a carbon black one. I got steel gray on red interior and luv it. The only thing is now is the owner will probably lock it away and not drive it because it is so nice , but hopefully Im wrong. One of the best driving cars , ever.

Amazing amount of detail you go into, and real skill, especially on the non factory paint areas. So easy to wear through top coat Curious how much the final bill is Based on 6 men for four days , so 24 days, or 200 man hours If it’s even £20 per hour, that’s £4,000 plus materials, badges etc Obviously increases the value of the car
more and more

In essence most detailing (vidoes anyways) is like that lady you meet in the club: all fine and dandy with disco lights, make up, booze, music until the next day you meet her without the lights, fancy clothes and make up. you might still love her, but its two different persons.

Somebody with a Rolls Royce might want this level of cleaning. But an old M3 ? I am a daily driver, rain mountain passes. Give me the finished car and it will need it done again in a week.

Your attention to detail is very impressive, although the "barn find" description is a bit misleading.

I’ve watched many car detailing videos......BUT you guys are by far “the best” in the business. Your attention to detail is so “on point” I’ve have never seen any other detail company remove lights, badges,trim etc. A totally brilliant result by the best professional detailers in the business, by a country mile! I wish you guys had a company on the Gold Coast, Australia.

Wow. I too found a car like this. I went to a Barn just recently and found it. I was just blown away! But mine is older and very rare. It has been just rotting away for years. I pay the insurance and drive it each year just like this car. But only around 10,00km a year so it's been just hiding in the barn. Each year. There are only a few of the models and options like my car. Just like this one. I think around 25,000 or so. Very rare. I was so lucky to find it as it was lost to the world and time was just eating it away. This just goes to show that there are other undiscovered Barn Finds still out there. Every Morning in my Barn I find it just like this one. Except I had to buy mine and this one was inherited from an unknown person called a "Father". Who must have once loved it but then just forgot about this car until it came time to insure it and drive it each year. Wow..
