Stick with a blow dryer if you cannot find enough intense sun for a few hours. On the other hand, I've heard some in the paint industry say its the suns UV rays that activate the self heal. I guess it depends on which manufacturer's clear BMW used on your car.
If I get the car clayed and polished, will this not take off the clearcoat?
