Black Sapphire F10 BMW M5 Detail - CarPro Essence Plus Trial

#1
Hello chaps, some may recognise the car from a previous detail I carried out for a good friend of mine. It's pretty clean and he really has looked after it washing wise etc after some advice, he's seen a massive difference just by washing it correctly. You'll see from the images the lack of swirling and micro-marring on a black acr by washing it properly.

The previous detail was carried out in March 2015 when he bought the car and hasn't been "detailed" since only washed correctly and quick detailing over the LSP that was applied to the car. http://www.cliosport.net/threads/black-sapphire-bmw-f10-m5-detail.771197/

The purpose of this detail for me was to test CarPro's new Essence plus "polish/glaze/sealant" whatever the hell it is ( https://carpro.uk.com/collections/s...ssence-plus-non-abrasive-gloss-enhancer-250ml ) Turns out this wasn't the greatest test bed as the paintwork is almost perfect so I found another nice black car lying around!

I have used Essence and had been impressed with the little sample, what I had really been waiting for was this. A true filler product with bonding resins that actually seals the car as it's being applied... all while using new technology which will keep the car cleaner for longer and durability like a modern sealant.

The pictures speak for themselves. There will be some correction from the pad even when soft simply through the machine movement but most of this is filling but filling that will bond and last. I will note again the really bad pictures of the black car are not this M5!

In terms of filling ability? I realise black hole doesn't have any sealant qualities to make it durable enough to use on it's own. So I wasn't thinking about comparing the durability of each product.
