Frozen Grey II metallic detailing products help

Does anyone have any recommendations for detailing products to buy to carry out a new car protection which are suitable for the Frozen Grey II metallic paintwork?

Also some advise on the best products for the car cleaning maintenance moving forward.

I will be getting mine a few weeks time so want to start buying some products in the meantime.

Dr Beasley products are great I recommend getting their starter pack off of amazon. It's a great way to try out the products. I have the frozen grey and it works great. Everyone says how hard it is to clean but its really easy.

Thanks so much. I will check this out.

The internet has scared me to death with this paintwork so hoping it will turn out easy enough with a good maintenance regime and the right products.

Yeah it had me all worried too but it is really simple.

The Dr Beasley's stuff is really easy. The first time took a bit of time just because of the additional treatment stuff but after that time really quite simple. Plus not having to wax or buff it makes it way easier.

Thanks I'm feeling a little more at ease with the paint work choice now regarding the maintenance.

I think I will go to a professional for a detail protection who can put a good base level sealant on there and then I can take care of it myself from then on.

Hi is one of these the kit you bought? The first one looks to be more/larger than the starter kit; and the second one the starter kit. I am thinking just buy the larger more expensive one - thanks for your advice here as will definitely try this out once car is built!

Ted the one I got was the second one. It was a great way to try it out plus you got the bucket and all the other stuff too. There's enough there to probably last 6 month or so. I also only use this bucket and sponges for the matte paint and use separate for the other cars so I don't get cross contamination. Hope that helps

Thanks Steve! great advice not to mix buckets! my current bucket is super high gloss Zaino related and had not thought about mixing to avoid all gloss. Will get the starter you mentioned. thanks again.

Had the frozen grey for just over a month.
I didnít get any ceramic coating this time.
The paintwork is easy to look after - not anywhere as bad as I thought.
Just using a citrus pre cleaner, good snow foam and then pure shampoo and then a quick top up of Gyeon wetcoat - not a matte product but easy to use in winter and adds a very little satin finish.

I've had my Frozen Blue E92M3 since new. I've also used both the BMW Matt Paint Products and Dr. Beasley's matt paint products to great effect. I typically do a thorough detail with the BMW stuff and then use Dr. Beasley's as a quick detail. When it was my only car, I drove it year-round, including through some heavy snow storms. Either product will work wonders.

As others have said, the frozen paint is fairly easy to maintain. There's no waxing or polishing. Just resist the urge to try to correct any scratches, if they happen.
