BMW Car Shampoo

I received a 'car care' kit' from BMW Thailand when I bought my M40i. This included a bottle of car shampoo but they could not tell me if it contained wax or not. As I have a matte paint finish, I cannot use a wax shampoo.

I checked the spec on the BMW Detergents page but, as I am not a chemist, I cannot confirm. I'd appreciate any info.

If it contains wax, I will just use it on my X5.

Carpro Reset is amazing. Best shampoo I've used. Optimum makes a good shampoo too. https://www.amazon.com/CarPro-Reset-.../dp/B00MLG4CX2

Thanks, I can find good wax free shampoos but I wanted to know if the BMW supplied one contains wax.

Looks like that might be a generic gift.

BMW do supply a specific shampoo for Matte paint - the pic above is not the same product.
The BMW Matte paint shampoo is actually rebranded AutoGlym pure shampoo ---- so save yourself a small fortune

I have no intention of buying BMW shampoos, like you say, they are way overpriced. I'm still trying to determine if the shampoo that was supplied with my car is suitable for matte paint. The BMW detergents page doesn't describe the product, but only lists the chemical contents - double Dutch to me
