There is a little more information on applying Feynlab here. It is quite labour intensive and time consuming as needs to be baked on. Alpina B3 GT3:

That looks incredible - my old 130i was Japan Red, it’s a cracking colour. I really like the sound of this ceramic finish, I’d be tempted to go the same route as and when mine needs paint correction and protection.

Very nice and amazing finish. You have set a standard here.
Thanks. The interior also scrubbed up well thanks to my business partner who also owns and operates http://www.leather-restoration.co.uk/

Totally understand the original and subtle look.

Two stunning E46 interiors 8) I've been slowly restoring the interior on my B10, needed it badly due to the previous keeper not staying on top of maintenance.

That is an impressive finish and the interior shot looks just lovely. There is always something to aspire to!

That looks stunning. 8)

I’m interested to know how well these self-healing coatings perform over their expected life time.
Thanks Bob

I have some real-life experience of Feynlab having had it applied to an E60 5-Series previously and we did a wire brush test on it (simulating the worst possible swirl making car wash experience on the paintwork - a pretty scary demo) and then poured very hot water on the resultant marks and they disappeared. About a year on I also had a baked on bird poo with the typical resultant etch marking. After removal an application of a hair dryer to the mark also saw this just seemingly melt away. Very impressive. It is not cheap compared to other ceramic coatings (but it is better at this level and type of protection) but it is not as expensive as Paint Protection Film (but nor will it protect as well though there are other pros and cons to PPF).
That sounds like a serious test and impressive result. Sounds like it’s worth considering in spite of the cost
