    Hello
    Has anyone tried Zymol Ebony Wax on their black paintwork?
    Its not recomended for metalics but it advertises to cover scratches
    and stone chips, my beemer is Jet black (668) in colour and I wondered
    if this stuff was suitable?
    Any reviews or opinions?
    Regards,
    SlowTech

    Yeh, I had heard that rumour r
    Jet black must be the worst colour in the world when it comes to showing imperfections .
    It looks fantastic from 5 yds away then everything starts to show as your get nearer.
    I've tried squinting as I approach the motor but I just keep bumping into the door

    Thats my $24,0000 question, nobody seems to have used the Ebony Wax
    Thanks for the input on Zymol though ,
    the Ebony Wax is about £50 and I don't want to buy any if it doesn't cover up these stone chips and scratches.
    oh decisions, decisions

    I know its epensive but why dont you save and get it detailed... they will get any swirls and marks out and protect/seal it for you.... black comes up amazing with a detail.. the guy a few threads down got his done for 200.. maybe worth considering! ...

    Yeh I know what you're saying G4EDW, I've been at my motor with a powered polisher and its coming on, but tbh I'm no detailer
    I've seen some fantastic posts on what a detailer can do, I'm just unsure they could remove or cover up the scratches or stone chips?
    Thats probably a question that I should be putting to a detailer?
    Now you've got me thinking about it having it detailed would make a lot of sense, I only want to get the paintwork up to a decent standard
    and then try and keep on top of it,the previous owners had neglected it .
    OMG I think I can see the wood for the trees now
    Well you've certainly given me food for thought
    Cheers for that G4EDW
    I'm off to check out some local detailers

    Mate, get it detailed - especially with your colour it will look AMAZING especially with the sun shining nicely these days - I've used miracle detail before, he charged around £350-£400 and used some crazy wax which costs a ridiculous amount, this was about 8 months ago but the car still looks and feels SOO smooth and my colour is titanium silver - i think if you get it detailed by the right person, it will look stunning!

    Good news/bad news

    good news:

    the detailer that did sparky750's 335i came and gave me a quote to work his magic on my motor, he's a top bloke Tony, he could have taken my money there and then, but he explained that all the stone chips on the bonnet and the damage that an Albatross did by sh****ing on the bonnet (previous owner didn't clean it off ) would stick out like a sore thumb.
    So off I went to see about getting the bonnet touched up !

    bad news:
    sprayer recomended bonnet and roof to be resprayed £450-500

    I ONLY WANT A SHINY CAR !!!

    so with the detailing that'll be about £700-£750

    there must be an easier way
    I'm still mulling it over
