BMW M2 New Car Detail + Opti-Coat Pro Ceramic Coatings

Wed 11th May 2016

Here is the gorgeous new Long Beach Blue BMW M2 after being treated to our New Car Paint Protection Detail.

As per instructions to the dealership by the customer the M2 arrived to us with the protective film still applied and unwashed, eliminating the risk of swirl marks being inflicted by dealership valeters prior to collection. 

As with every detail the vehicle was fully washed and completely decontaminated using fallout remover and a clay bar. This removes any embedded contaminants from the surface of the paintwork, alloy wheels and glass. A perfectly smooth finish is left behind allowing any form of protection applied to bond correctly to the lacquer.

The paintwork was then given a single stage machine polish using the Rupes S.P.A. Big Foot Polishing System. This was to enhance the gloss significantly, whilst at the same time removing the fine scratches and other blemishes that had been inflicted by the dealership valeters. Further localised machine polishing was then carried out to remove some minor stubborn defects that required slightly more work.

Opti-Coat Pro and Opti-Coat Pro Plus ceramic coatings were then applied to the paintwork.

Opti-Coat Pro is a permanent hard wearing, ceramic clear coat for superior resistance to scratching as well as surface protection from chemical etching from environmental impacts. Opti-Coat has better chemical resistance, scratch and mar resistance, and release properties than any other automotive paint coating in use. It provides permanent protection for all modern factory paints.

Opti-Coat Pro Plus now delivers even more gloss and slickness than ever before, while still maintaining the same chemical structure that has made it renowned as the ultimate protective paint coating. The advanced formulation not only delivers amazing gloss and protection, it also provides increased anti water spotting and hydrophobic properties to maintain the perfect finish in the long term. Opti-Coat Pro Plus adds great gloss and slickness for a fantastic shine and long term paint protection with a 7 year warranty.

The alloy wheels were then protected with Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour and the glass with Gtechniq G1 Water repellent.
