    Vehicle : BMW 520D Touring

    Trim : M Sport Business

    Engine : 2.0 d

    Year : 2010

    Default Ceramic coating

    A bit of advice please team,

    When I picked my car up in Jan it had been ceramic coated as part of the deal. It is great and the water just runs off and it is very easy to clean and comes with a 5 year guarantee.

    What I want to know though is how easy is it to remove???

    I ask as when they applied it they hadn't cleaned the car as well as I believe it should have been and you can see different shades under it where some parts are cleaner than others. It is difficult to see but now I know it's there it sticks out like the dogs proverbial.

    I would like to remove it to repair small blemishes and fully detail her before re applying myself.

    I would ask them to do it but the hassle I've had with them over other issues it's not worth it.

    It has the Williams ceramic coat on it if that makes any difference.

    Cheap and safe? wolfs chemicals deironiser £10 from polished bliss and applied all over or on certain panel's. Sound's to me as if they have applied the coating too thick in area's and what you see is commonly known as high spot's, sealant coatings like this if applied to thick will give a slight haze look and youll think its actually dirt, As if youve just washed the car and when its dried youve spotted a missed bit...lol..
    With this coating a very very thin layer is all thats needed, and try spread evenly in long accross strokes, not up and down.
