I've heard somewhere that the BMW paints have a very thin clear coat (4 microns or so) and that if you buff a new car it will take off that finish gradually.
Can somone chime in on this? Is there are product that work wonders for the paint? Something that bonds with the paint and puts a protective coating so that the paint will look/last longer?
Any high quality sealant will bond with the paint and protect it from the elements. They all need reapplication occasionally though. Any polishing will remove clear coat.. that is the same with every car.
What none of these things protect from is rock chips and scratches. For those, you need a clear bra.
