This 2009 Mercedes E350 4-Matic was one of the very first cars to come through my new facility. It only had approximately 2500 miles on the ODO. The owner was one of my professors in college, whom I am still friends with.



Pressure-rinse entire vehicle.

Pre-treat door shuts, wheel wells, and front end with mild APC.

Clean tires, wheels, and wells with Optimum Power Clean and various brushes.

Wash body of vehicle with 2 oz. Optimum Car Wash, 1 oz. ONR, & 1 oz. Power Clean in 4 gallons of water.

Pressure-rinse entire vehicle.

Treat tires with Optimum Tire Shine. OTS is left to dwell on the tires the entire duration of the detail to allow the dressing to absorb into the rubber. When I'm done, there is virtually no excess to wipe off.



Clay all glass and painted areas.

Polish with Meg's 205, PC/5, and a Meg's polishing pad. I received a sample of this new polish and was eager to try it out after hearing some good reviews.

Seal paint with Optimum Opti-Seal. Allow to cure for about 12 hours.

Wax paint with Pinnacle Souveran paste.



Vacuum carpets, mats, and leather crevices.

Wipe-down all leather, plastic, & vinyl surfaces with warm ONR solution (2 gallons water: 1oz. ONR).

Treat all leather, plastic, & vinyl surfaces with Optimum Protectant Plus.

Treat all carpet and mats with Aerospace 303 Fabric Guard.

Clean all glass inside and out with warm ONR solution. This works great and leaves zero streaks.
