Morrie will be treating my car with this 2 part sealant. You might want to check this product out as well. Cheers.
Hi Guys, Long time reader and first post and I am loving the look of the F30.
Morrie detailed my e92. It required paint correction http://www.detailparadise.com.au/sho...ack-Correction He has done a few of my and my families cars. It been sold now. I miss it.
Thats mine. He did a great job. He put a wax on mine because I could not afford the sealant option at the time but he did offer me Nitroseal and another one by Wolf's I think the brand was but could not afford the extra at the time.... anyways, I was working out why I could not post threads and just realised I need 3 posts under my belt! So this is my first with hopefully many more to come.

I cant wait to see the F30 on the road, it may just tempt me.

Welcome. We look forward to your posts. Yes. Morrie spent all day yesterday detailing my E90 for sale. What a great job he did!!! He would not give up until a small stain in the boot's carpet was fully streamed out. That's how much detail he puts into his work.

He is detailing my F30 in November and will be using Wolf's Hard Body seal.

Looks like a great job done there...beemermans.

Can you get it done sooner David, I realize the prep work wax doesnt last very long..

On the day I picked the car up it was raining and there was good water beading. On the bright side I did not have to clay bar the car coz the paintwork was prestine..

Buy boy that Swissvax survace cleaner destroyed my arms.. it's tough to get get off.

Thanks for that. Morrie was quite excited to show me the bottle. He said that there are nano particles in the formula.

What is your experience with the product?

Wolfs stuff are good, I'm sure it won't let you down. I've tried quite a few sealants before all VERY SHINY and GLOSSY =) But I'd still say maintenance is key.. car wash once a week (I like to apply some quik wax for extra protection)..wheel cleaning.. see if he can seal the clear coat on the wheels too it helps with brake dust.. removing bird dropping and tree sap ASAP.

Yes it is a nano sealant (PROPER nano sealant).

I had a 2 week old 1M in Valencia Orange (as are all my Wolfs test cars).

We always test with Shine & Seal first. It forms a better base for the final product (Body Wrap or Hard Body). You get an increase in all aspects:

1. Duration of protection
2. Slickness
3. Gloss & Shine

The product seems to work well with the Shine & Seal, although there is no reason why you couldn't just use Hard Body by itself.

Here is my write up on the product:

Car: 2012 BMW 1M in Valencia Orange

Product: Wolf's Chemicals Hard Body Nano Sealant

Procedures:

Step 1. Full wash & Clay to clean paint work.

Step 2. Apply Wolf's Chemicals Shine & Seal Nano Sealing Polish

We used this to 'jewel' the paintwork. This car was 2 weeks old and needed no paint correction work, but we used this product to further clean the paintwork. Immediately, we added shine and the paint looked wet and felt glossy.
This is a 2-in-1 product. It polishes (very minor/finishing) and seals the paintwork. Apparently, we're looking at 6 months alone just using this product.

Step 3. Apply Wolf's Chemicals Hard Body Nano Sealant.

Instead of using a hand application pad, we applied the sealant via finishing pad and RO machine.

Final Comments:

Similar to Body Wrap in terms of application, general appearance and depth. The difference is, this product is slicker than the Body Wrap. Also, we have a manufacturer's claim of around 2 years durability and slight scratch resistance.

Features: Gloss, depth, long durability, scratch resistance technology
What we like about it: Ease of application, shorter curing time
What we didn't like about it: Not a lot...maybe the smell?

Photo's do not do justice, but here are a couple anyway:
