In Reply to: Paint Protector coating??? Anyone know anything? posted by Stephanie on October 24, 1999 at 21:46:29:
: I read something about a coating from BMW that protects your paint for five years! It supposedly protects against rock chips, sun fading, and is guaranteed !! Good for me because unfortunately I have to park my car outside.
: Does anyone have any info on this?
: Also how much is the cost?
: And my main question is do I have to order it with this already done? Because if that's the case, I can't get it.
: My car is on the way and I don't want to wait any longer than I have to !!
I remember this being raised in the UUNET news group on BMW's and the consensus was if this was a paint protectatnt similiar to wax than there was no way it could last 5 years. If it is stonegard than it only covers the front nose not the whole car. I would stay away if they claim you don't wax the entire car for 5 years - I don't beleive anything that good exists. Good luck deciding which wax to use - everyone has a favorite..
