Based on our experience and considering these factors when assessing your car, will allow us to provide you with an informative and accurate time and cost for correcting your paintwork.

Proper preparation is also the key to good results, your car will be snow foamed to dissolve the dirt and grime, de-waxed to remove any old polishes or waxes that maybe hiding more defects, decontaminated to remove road tar, tram dust, tree and more – and then taped up to protect the trim, rubbers and other areas that are sensitive. This preparation takes time but ensures the very best results.

At The Transformation Garage we use the latest and current techniques, chemicals and equipment from around the world. These are highly effective on all paint finishes including single stage, clear coat and includes the latest ceramic-clear paint systems that BMW is currently using. We also use specialist lighting to be able to see the paint imperfections, and ensure we focus on every area of your car, this lighting imitates sunlight which as any enthusiast knows shows off paintwork to its very best or very worst!
