Guide to BMW Individual Frozen Paint Care

Guide to BMW Individual Frozen Paint Care
4
COMMENTS

Matt Russell, BMW M Brand Manager, and a BMW Body & Paint Specialist explains the paint guidelines behind BMW's "frozen" matte paint finishes. The care required is actually much less than most expect.

Only regular shampoo and insect remover (BMW recommends theirs of course) is needed. No other chemicals (sealants, waxes, polishes, etc.) are needed.

* They warn that you can even damage the frozen matte paint by using a microfiber cloth, wax, sealant, or quick detailer.

If this were true (and from detailing this type of paint finish it’s not) why would BMW Engineers choose a paint finish this delicate for the rigorous conditions of the road?

It looks really good, but if it's THAT sensitive I wouldn't choose that option.

This is a case where the marketing team won over the engineering team.
