2017 BMW M2 Performance Technic Shop Car

Can’t believe it’s already been a year we worked on The Grocery Getter for Performance Technic.

Here is the blog from Performance Technic if you didn’t know the “Grocery Getter”.


We also noticed we have changed quite a bit of the shop from the blog. Let us know what you guys think.

So Joe @ Performance Technic got the new BMW M2 and wondering what we can do for his car this time. Joe wasn’t too sure about Paint Protection Film before but this time he would like to give it a try on the front bumper because of the rock chips just really annoying for his new commute route to Fremont. Yes, if you guys don’t know about it. Performance Technic just moved to Fremont ! Their new location address is 4370 TECHNOLOGY DRIVE, FREMONT, CA 94538.

Job Performed for this BMW M2

Hybrid Paint Correction – Spot Compound for Major Area and Fine Polish the entire vehicle
Ceramic Pro Protection Coating on Exterior Surfaces, Brake Caliper (Wheels will be done later as new wheels will be installed in the near future)
Paint Protection Film – Front Bumper, headlight, door cups, quarter panel shark fin, luggage area

Once the car is dropped off, we inspected the car and see what level of paint correction it needs. For white color vehicles, many imperfection are hidden but under our inspection lighting system we are easily to locate them and take pictures for documentation purposes.

Overall the car isn’t in bad shape, we found heavy contamination on the rear section of the car due to the Dinan Exhaust System, water spots on the side skirt, factory buff mark, buffing haze, light swirl marks and a few RIDS (Random Isolated Deep Scratches). We measure the paint thickness and tried out few different approaches and determine which one we will use for the entire vehicle.

Tire Shine has to be GONE here. Just 1000 miles and the tire shine just really mess up the car.

Wheels Removed. Coating for the Brake Caliper ONLY this time.

After the car is Prep, we then installed the Paint Protection Film.

Also remove factory OEM pieces here due to the texture and yellowish tint color.

Installed New Paint Protection Film Pieces.

During the Paint Correction Process.

After Paint Correction and Ceramic Pro Protection Coating. Now the BMW M2 will look good for years with the proper maintainence.
