personally i think gtechniq is the way to go their new cytstal serum ultra and 9 yesr promise of protection will be hard to beat.
I had my SRB done in April with cyrstal serum black and two coats of exo and full interior done as well with 7 year warranty.

Going for full gtechniq protection itís the best value for money on the market and great reviews also . On my f33 I used 2 types cquartz and gtechniq and the gtechniq ceramic coat is far superior

Thanks guys , yesterday afternoon had lots of pointless drives
Couldnít get away from the car lol

What did your dealers say about running in period ? I saw some ppl here saying keep it below 4k for 600 miles others said 800 miles. Asked the salesman yesterday and he said no running in period needed
So no sure how to take it now
Still havenít been above 4k just in case
Any help with this would be great

The manual is rubbish

My running in period went a little like this:

0-250 miles - took it easy to bed in all components
250-600 miles - varied revs a lot a few times up to 5.5k but never cold and rarely
600+ - steadily increased revs, the odd red line but nothing significant until 1000 miles
