    I no the boys in the bodyshop hate these new bm's with the anti scratch paint meant to be a real nightmare to buzz over to flat them back

    I'd have that matte black finish in preference to any other paint. Looks amazing.

    Technically, a detailer's dream. Any problems and it has to go back to the dealership bodyshop. All you can do is wash it...

    From what I saw and understand...

    You cannot invisibly repair stone chips or scratches, you cannot polish it so whatever state its in you have to just accept or get a respray. What a load of bollox.

    The BMW Specialist said in the video something like... lets face it, the only reason we do scratch repair work is to protect the metal.

    No.... the reason we do scratch repair work is because it looks terrible left untreated. Clean paintwork looks nice and is a major part of how a car looks.

    They are in a dream world

    Yup, that's exactly how I saw and understood it mate. So if you're a detailer, all you can do is wash it and hand over the invoice. No polishing, waxing, protecting, sealing, measuring, repairing or anything...

    Who wants light absorbing paint? Why cant they invent Radar Absorbing paint? I'd buy that no matter what it looked like
