The exterior of a vehicle says a great deal about its owner, and BMW paintwork simply reflects this. You’d be very hard-pressed to find a pristine BMW on the streets without some sort of damage. Whether you like it or not, your vehicle’s exterior says a lot about you. If you are thinking about selling your vehicle, you want it to appear as spotless and pristine on the open road as it does in your garage or showroom. With proper care and attention, you can ensure that your vehicle will look as stunning when you’re ready to sell it as it did when you drove home that blue ride.
If you take care of your vehicle, you can make it look better than ever. Just like you’d make any other investment in yourself or your business, buying and maintaining a vehicle is an investment in your reputation. It’s who you are and who your family represents. If your car doesn’t look good, no one else will. In fact, if your car doesn’t look like it’s worth its price, it could cost you business.
The first step to having a great looking BMW is having a clean and clear coat. In previous years, the BMW logo was clear but faded as time went by. The newer badges have more vibrant colors that stand out against the clear coat. In fact, if you drive any BMW today, you’ll notice the badge sitting proudly in your center console, just below the air dam. That’s a testament to how well the clear coats are designed and built. Your badge has to look like a business card, too, because it’s one of the first things any customer sees.
Another part of the new badges is the “BMW Car Cover.” These are made of strong, thick vinyl that protects your BMW when it sits in a pick-up truck or a private first class vehicle. No matter where you drive your BMW, you can rest assured it’s protected. From road rage to theft, the car cover can keep your ride looking new for years to come.
The “BMW Car Cover” also removes everything around the car for a clean, clear coat. So even if you’re traveling at 70 mph, you’ll still see nothing but clean, shiny surfaces from here on out. Whether you’ve locked your keys in the trunk or stuck the toe of your shoe in the mud, this cover takes care of everything. It takes off the original paint that may have peeled or flaked off over time. It even removes tough stains so your favorite trim doesn’t get all stained up.
If you need something to do with those old cracked paint chips, then another great product from BMW is the chip repair kit. This product replaces chips and scratches so they look as good as new. Whether you posted them up on the side or set them in the sun, these kits will remove everything around. There’s a special join date included so you’ll know the exact date that it posts and how long it takes to actually repair it.
For someone who doesn’t want to spend their money on these kits, there’s still a way to make everything come together for you. For this project, you’ll need a few things. One, make sure you have a clean, dry, vehicle. Two, a piece of paper with your vehicle identification number (VIN) and the letters “YM” spelled in white. Three, a tube of ymb paste and a spray gun.
Use the my touch driver to get into the car and start the job. You’ll then apply the ymb touch marker to the seals using the traced join date on the VIN. Once you’ve put everything together, use the spray gun to prime all of the seals and let them dry completely. Using the sprayed-on f80 wax, apply it to all of the seals. Follow the directions on your BMW paint chip removal kit to finish your job.
