You have a BMW and, now that winter is over, you want to get it sparkling and shining like new. Depending on how old your BMW happens to be, it may not be practical to restore that finish to like new quality, but it certainly may be possible to bring it back to an amazing appearance.
Many BMW owners take a great deal of pride in keeping their vehicle clean and well-maintained. However, during the winter it’s not always practical to go over every detail. It may be too cold, the garage may not offer the kind of room necessary to detail it, or time could be an issue.
Now that spring is here, it’s time to think about spring cleaning for your BMW as well. Here are some tips that can help you on the right path.
Spring Cleaning Tip #1: Start small.
Instead of jumping right in and planning to clean the entire interior portion of the car from top to bottom, start small. Focus on vacuuming all of the rugs, seats, and in the crevices with a strong shop vac first.
After that, you can clean the dashboard, detail around the radio and dashboard compartments, and more. If you try to jump in with both feet first, after several hours you may very well lose interest, time, or energy, and that can leave the job looking half done.
Spring Cleaning Tip #2: Give it a quick wash first.
When it comes time to clean the exterior portion of the vehicle, just give it a quick wash down. You may not want to invest a great deal of time in fine detailing all of the external parts of the vehicle just yet. Pollen season is just around the corner and that can wreak havoc on your car’s finish.
You might want to give it a quick wash and then detail the interior portion of the car and then focus on the exterior portion detailing.
Spring Cleaning Tip #3: Protect your convertible top.
If you have a convertible top on your BMW, get the right solutions to help protect it against spring and summer sun. It’s a good idea to protect it all year round, but especially important during the hot spring and summer months to come.
