BMW E30 M50 - ATD Detailing, Derby

BMW E30 Sleeper

Evening everyone. So today we had a pleasure of working on a beauty, this immaculately restored BMW E30. However it wasn’t your typical E30, this one is powered by a 2.8L M50 Engine out of the newer E36’s. The term wolf in sheep’s clothing is quite fitting with this one! The owner, Paul, got in touch with us after recently completing the build. Everything on the car was perfect bar the interior. It wasn’t the worst we had seen however it had picked up stains and a damp smell due to it being sat out of the car for approximately a year while the car was being restored and was stored in outdoor shelter.

We promptly booked the car in for an interior detail, upon delivery of the car we started (after some more admiring). Firstly we started off with vacuuming and removing any dust and dirt. We then started on the staining, this was sprayed and agitated with a fabric cleaner, we then proceeded with cleaning all the fabrics with a fabric shampoo and was extracted using a wet-vac and left to dry. This process was repeated until the stains were removed. All the plastics and vents were carefully steam cleaned to clean the plastic back to standard while also removing any bacteria. Once the cleaning process was completed the finished product was protected, here’s the finished interior pictures:
