Frozen Paint

Post by MarkB01 » Tue Apr 20, 2021 6:23 pm

(Note, first post in forum).

I'm 10 days into owning my new Z4 M40i in Frozen Grey (I really love the color). I am debating PPF for the front. Last couple of cars had it.

A lot of good info and concerns in this thread. If and as I learn anything with time, I'll touch back with a post.

Hello and welcome, I hope you enjoy many happy miles in it.

Lovely looking car, my favourite colour :thumbsup:

I would need to have at least the front PPF’d but as raised in response to a post I made earlier in this thread, would the PPF be shiny and change the appearance/finish of the frozen paint. I’ll be interested to hear what your detailer says re this, especially if only half the car is done
Currently Zedless 10 more sleeps until our Misano Blue M40i arrives :D

Such a good looking car and colour. Pity it is spoilt by having a cloth roof. :poke:

Welcome to the forum. Good to have another matte paint owner on board.The G29 looks fabulous in frozen Grey (and Orange)!

Just wanted to update on how easy the matte finish on my car is to look after as could be helpful to other owners. Couple of days ago I noticed my car was dusty and and had a few marks from general use in the current UK dry weather. Two micro fibres and Nonolex Matte Final Finish spray was all it needed to make it look like new. So easy to apply, no residue and zero scratches! It’s a German product and not sure if it’s available in the USA but well worth trying it out. Product details as follows:

“MATTE Final Finish is a silicone-free quick detailing spray designed not to add gloss to your satin matte paintwork. Use it to wipe away light dust, fingerprints and water marks. The pH-neutral formulation means it will not degrade your existing sealant layer but actually adds protection.”

Have used it since I bought the car and it’s brilliant! :thumbsup:

Yes, it's available. However, I yesterday ordered "Adam's Matte Detailer" which seems to be a similar product. If that doesn't work, I'll try Nonolex. Thanks :thumbsup:

Sounds similar to looking after a car with ppf.
