Matt Russell, BMW NA M Brand and ALPINA Manager, and Tim Reiter, BMW Body & Paint Technical Specialist, tell us more about the washing and maintenance process of the matte paint colors.

Among many tips for those owners with “frozen” paint finishes, here are a few that stand out:

  • Use a regular shampoo and insect remover
  • Microfiber cloth, wax, sealant and final inspection cleaner can damage the matte paint
  • Do not polish or wax the vehicle
  • No mechanical means of cleaning the surface
  • Remove insect remains, tar and other residues immediately
