Frozen white and track time

Anyone track their frozen m3? Any problems with durability with rubber and bugs? I am considering a frozen paint m3 and I will track the car frequently.

I track my Frozen Silver pretty regularly. I had the whole front clear (matte/satin) bra'd so I didnt have to worry about stone chips etc. I do get rubber marks in the bra but they do clean up if you give them some attention.

So far so good!

Dang your car is looking mighty good with those track shoes one. Reminds me of a female athlete thats great at her sport and is super fine at the same time.

Thanks for the info. How is the maintenance of the paint? Just wash only right? No wax or polish.

Maintenance is like you said. Just wash. I did use Dr. Beasley's (Sp?) matte wax product on it (swissvax has one too, but it wasnt available when I ordered). I do carry a bottle of BMW's bug remover in the car to clean off any bird droppings or bugs from long drives etc. But it really is too much to get fussed over.

I spend much more time waxing and polishing my other cars than I do this car - wash and wear so to speak!

Thanks! Have you ever used a touchless automatic carwash? I ask because I would have to use one in the winter to get the salt/sand off and I'm concerned I would damage the pain.

I dont drive this car in the winter. I have never done anything but hand wash it. I know there are a few people who drive their frozen painted cars in the winter so maybe they can chime in on what they do to keep it clean.

I would not drive our cars in the winter!
You should be happy with the clear bra while tracking.
I also have the bug spray remover always on hand and yes I'm the punch line of many jokes for this.
SwissVax is great.

Frozen white is so sexy, BTW

Car looks great!

If you're going to clear bra, make sure you cover the windshield too.
