A local client contacted Westminster Speed and Sound about BMW paint protection film for his 2018 M2 coupe. He planned to take the car to several track days and wanted to protect the stunning Long Beach Blue Metallic paint. He had seen the damage from gravel and stones flung at the front of a car going more than 120 mph on the track. We discussed options for protecting the vehicle and agreed to a full front-end package to keep this beauty looking like new.
Paint Protection Film Protects Your Investment
Paint protection film is a fully transparent urethane film that we apply directly to the paint on a vehicle. The film is a barrier against chips, scratches and nicks. Paint film also protects against stains caused by road tar and bug splatter. In the winter, the film guards against damage from salt and debris caught in the spray from other vehicles.
We use 3M Scotchgard Pro Series 4.0 films for all our installations. The film is 8 mils thick and not only protects the vehicle from damage, but includes self-healing properties. In the event of a small scratch or scuff, the application of a little heat will make most blemishes disappear and restore a mirror-like appearance.
One of the key reasons we partnered with 3M is that incredible 10-year warranty they provide for this film. The warranty is backed nationwide, so even if you move to Florida or Oregon, your investment is protected.
BMW Paint Protection Film Installation
We started the installation by washing the M2 thoroughly. With only 1,800 miles on the odometer, the car was in great shape and there was no need to correct any damage. Our installation team prepped and installed film on each panel of the front of the vehicle. We wrapped the whole hood, the entire surface of the front fenders, the rocker panels, the painted side mirror covers and finally the intricate and complex front bumper with the 3M film. Manipulating the film into the complex shapes and openings in the front bumper took careful planning and a great deal of persistence, but the results are superb and the vehicle looks fantastic.
With the entire front of the car protected, the client can be confident that his investment will continue to look extraordinary, even when he is drafting his fellow driving enthusiasts.
