BMW F10 alien Coating - The detailien Difference...

Got a call from the owner of an F10 which we coated a few months ago.


He just had his front bumper resprayed wanted to get it re-coated to protect it from the harsh Malaysian environment like the rest of the car. I told him to wait 1-2 months to ensure the paint was fully cured and scheduled an appointment to get the front bumper attended to.

All taped up and ready to go...

A halogen shot of the coated front hood. Still looks good!

The same can't be said for the recently resprayed front bumper. After only 2 months, some noticeable swirls on the new paint.

Corrected with the Optimum MF Polishing pad with Optimum Hyper Polish and the Flex3401VRG.

I explained to the owner that it would be quite easy to just clean the surface and apply the coating but that would defeat the purpose of the coating as the surface below would still have paint defects even though it is protected by the coating on top. The idea is to ensure the paint is fully corrected and then only coated to preserve and protect the corrected paint.

All ready for coating.


Nice, well defined reflection where the number plate is attached.

Cost to owner: $0.
Owner satisfaction: Priceless....

The detailien Difference.

Another BMW F10 520d Optimum Opti-Coated

Got another call from a concerned BMW owner about protecting his brand new ride (not as brand new as this one: http://prodetailing.blogspot.com/2012/02/bmw-f10-520d-optimum-opti-coated.html) but still with less than 1000km on the clock. The owner wanted us to coat his ride as soon as possible to protect the original factory paint with Optimum Opti-Coat which is harder and more scratch and chemical resistant the normal paint. The Opti-Coat also has superior water beading qualities and is designed to last the lifetime of the paint.

As with the previous F10, Mun from Hypergloss, was kind enough to lend me a hand with this Opti-Coating as well.

The oil burners seem to be getting more popular...

As it was a new ride the paint was in pretty good condition with the exception of a few deep scratches...

Removed by wet sanding.

Coating with Optimum Opti-Coat.

A nice, deep, glossy shine!!!

McLaren MP4-12C coated with Optimum Opti-Coat

by Joe of Superior Shine.

Re: McLaren MP4-12C, I loved her as if she were mine!

Don't bother me, I'm in the ZONE! 

We used various kinds of lighting to make sure we polished the paint perfect!

After all these years polishing paint, perfect paint still gets me all excited! We finished up with Opti-Coat to lock in this beautiful SHINE!

Lots of hours later we were tired but the hard work was greatly rewarding!!

BMW F10 520d Optimum Opti-Coated

The owner of this brand-new BMW F10 520d is a very discerning individual with great taste for fine German engineered cars. This F10 was acquired to fulfill the role of a daily driver and the owner wanted to protect its brand new paintwork.

The owner had experience with another car coating and was decidedly less than impressed with its performance after just a few weeks and decided to get this F10 Opti-Coated.

As it was a new car with only 150km on the clock, I had expected this to be a fairly quick and painless coating job..... but.....***

***About the process of coating:
It is a common misconception that coating a car is just about applying the coating on the surface of the paint. While this is certainly possible and there are some detailing centers that do just that, I would question the whole point of coating a car if the paint is not fully corrected before the coating process. The paint has to be painstakingly prepped to remove all of the defects before the coating is applied as the coating will seal in any paint defects.

In the case of this F10, the paint was carefully inspected and as it was a brand-new car there were not a lot of issues with the paint except for these stains that appeared to have been flung up by the tires.

The stains appear to have soaked into the pores of the paint and even Optimum Power Clean at full strength did not have any effect on it.

This left us no choice but to wet sand all of the affected areas.

After correction and coating:
