Detailing and Paint Protection Film

I took the car to Esoteric Auto Detail here in Ohio for their new car prep and protection. Although I enjoy detailing myself I was eager to see one of the "professional only" grade coatings on one of my own cars. This will also be my first experience with paint protection film.

The entire front of the car (bumper, hood, fenders, mirrors) as well as the rocker panels, rear impact area behind the wheels, and the scratch prone B-pillars were all covered with SunTek film. The car was then coated with Kamikaze Myabi Coat, the external glass received Gyeon Q2 View, and the wheels and calipers were covered with Gyeon Q2 Rim. The hatch was also de-badged.



My photos won't do it justice, but I am quite pleased with the cleaning properties and the coatings and how inconspicuous modern PPF is and eventually I'll go into detail on my washing process if anyone cares to see.

Accessories

Fitted Cargo Liner (51472302924)



Floor Liners (82112317872) (82112317869)

I prefer carpet, but these mats don't have a heel pad infront of the pedals and I can't stand to look at a worn spot so I anticipate leaving the liner in the drivers floor year round.



Warning Triangle (71606770487)

The empty spot here and behind the first aid kit was driving me nuts. Hopefully I'll never have to use either.



Euro First Aid Kit (71107263439)

Not certain if this is the correct kit. If any Americans who took Munich delivery or European F31 owners can tell me what they have I would appreciate it.



On Deck

Post break-in oil change.
  • Motul 8100 X-Cess
  • Oil Drain Plug (11137535106)
  • Oil Filter Kit (11427566327)



Dinantronics



Winter Set-up

18x8 Light Alloy Style 398 (36116796250)



Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 (225/40R18)



Hopefully it won't look too dissimilar to this...



My silly plate



Long lost brothers



Thanks for looking!

Beautiful wagon!

Your winter tires are 1" too short though, 225/45-18 is the OEM size for F30/F31.
