If you belong to the elite club of douchebags BMW M3 Frozen Grey Coupe owners, you should probably pay attention to BMW’s instructions for maintaining the unique paint job.
According to a post on Bimmerforums, there are a set of very specific instructions when it comes to detailing the car, among them;
- Never polish or wax the frozen gray paint as it could lead to a glossy surface.
- If washing your frozen gray M3 in a automatic car wash, choose a car wash that does not apply vehicle wax. Rinse the M3 with high pressure water to remove dirt before sending it through the automatic car wash to avoid scratches from sand, dust and other micro-particles.
- Remove bugs, bird poo, tree sap, tar, fuel spills or oil immediately using a soft sponge. Avoid strong rubbing while cleaning the frozen paint. BMW sells suitable products for maintaining the frozen paint at your local dealer.
- Repairs to the paint (scratches, dents, etching) must be completed by a BMW-trained body shop. Most auto body shops will not be capable of repairing the frozen gray paint.
If that weren’t enough, owners of the car must also sign an agreement absolving BMW of any responsibility for damage of the special paint, with BMW washing its hands of any damage related to improper care, negligance, environmental factors or improper repairs. Have fun driving this thing!
