BMW Protect X

Hi All

I have recently collected my new BMW and the Dealer has put the Protect X paint protection on which I did not want (on several occasions) as on a previous occasion when I did want it the said product it turned my white car cream (same dealer)

In bright sunlight the car looks like it has swirls and holograms which I am hoping it is just the Protect X which has not been removed properly but until I get to wash the car and wipe it down at the weekend I will not know for sure.

The dealer has said they can remove the Protect X using the same process as the pre delivery wash. I am not allowing the dealer to touch the car so I am going to leave it till the better weather arrives and have the car machine polish by a local detailer.

Do any of you guys know if the Protect X is a nano wax or a ceramic coating?

Cheers

If it's the new version of GuardX, it's not a true ceramic coating - I'd call it more of a nano coating - perhaps slightly tougher / longer lasting than say AG EGP for example, if that makes sense...

Sounds like they've just cleaned it and applied it, so if it's needed a polish re the swirls etc, if that wasn't done, then obviously adding a gloss on top will enhance them - which this sounds like it's done...

I think a clay / polish will remove it for you
