Keep Your BMW Looking Brand New

by


Aside from keeping your car looking new, maintaining the appearance of your vehicle is an important part of overall maintenance. Regular cleaning will help protect the exterior of your car from the damage that dirt, oil, debris and exposure can cause. While many people choose to use a professional car wash service, others choose to do it themselves with the assistance of the right products and tools.

We can help you select the right products to keep your BMW looking brand new.

DIRTY CAR

The roads we drive on are far from perfect. Dirt, rocks and debris can damage your car while you’re driving, and fluctuations in temperature and sun exposure contribute to the slow and deliberate deterioration of plastic parts. Scheduling a cleaning routine every couple of weeks is essential to combat any accumulated debris. Maintaining glass, plastic and/or vinyl, rubber and leather surfaces is equally important.


Unquestionably, one of your vehicle's worst enemies is bird droppings. For years motorists have been under the impression that acid in the droppings was to blame for the unsightly blemishes and patches on their cars' paintwork. However, damage actually results from cooling paint lacquer which contracts and hardens around the deposits. The good news is that damage can usually be avoided – but only if owners act fast.

When paint lacquer warms in sunlight, it softens and expands. At the same time, the heat dries and hardens any bird droppings on the surface. When the paint lacquer cools, it contracts, hardens and conforms to the texture of the bird dropping. The end result appears as dulled or etched paintwork. The light's reflection is interrupted by the imperfect surface, unlike the undamaged surrounding paint which gives off a clearer reflection.

As bird droppings become ever more prevalent through spring and into summer, motorists must be vigilant to avoid permanent damage, especially those who park their cars under trees. The only way to prevent the paint becoming noticeably tarnished is to carefully remove deposits as swiftly as possible.
