    Hi my friend is taking delivery of an Alpina D3 Coupe very soon and its Black.
    My question is this, should he get Syntners BMW to superguard the paint or is it worth going to a pro detail place and have them prep the car.
    Black is real bad as we know for little marks etc, so from brand new is the superguard seal worth it or is it better protected with having a shop working there magic on the paint?

    Superguard is only as good as the person who applies it

    There are plenty of other products out there that would do a better job, it's also better to apply protection more regularly than something like SG who claim you don't need to polish again etc

    I would spend the £300-£400 elsewhere on your own products or on a pro detail

    having been a valater at a main dealers and using super guard on many many vehicles i would say dont pay 300-400 quid on having bmw do it the kits cost 25 quid for the dealers and i have at least 3 full kits at home so if your that desperate to supa guard it i would suggest buying a kit and doing it your self its a piece of piss to do and all you need are some microfibre clothes

    Thanks for the comments, with the advice you have sounds like fair money spent on good quality products put on with decent microfibre clothes by either your self or a detail business, with access to better higher quality products sounds like the preferred way to go.
    If its done real good the first time then kept well and waxed from time to time after I think the car should look good for the next owner at least.

    The VW dealer did my wife's black Golf in error before delivery. I clayed it off and polished and waxed it pretty quickly, it was applied terribly.

    Unless the dealer is getting a proper valeter in then i'd DIY or get someone that knows what they're doing. Dealers normally make a dogs dinner out of polishing

    A pro would only charge ~£100 - £180. A lot cheaper than dealers and they will have better products at their disposal..

    I am going to the Autobrite meet on Saturday so its the ideal time to get the car booked in for a proper job.
    I am with the chaps who would have a business work there magic for the first time using high quality sealants and a top quality wax.
    Just need to talk my mate round from him have BMW go at it, they will do a good job but its expensive and in my opinion a new black D3 would benefit from a full prep from a pro detail shop. As people say the cost is more or less the same or even work out a little cheaper.
    So if anybody is going on Sat then my mate Tony will be there as well so lets talk him into a proper job!!
