How about paint quality?

5193 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  m_five
This M5 will be my first BMW vehicule and I would like to ask others with BMW ownership experience if the paint quality on these car is good, adequate or above the average as far as wear, scratch resitance, shine and so on. The reason I ask is because I had my 2 other vehicule buffed, polished and waxed last week and I have ask the question to the pro doing it if he though BMW had good paint and he was not very positive about it, anyone can comment?

thanks

I'm not terribly familiar with the particulars, but I remember reading that the Germans use some fairly toxic elements in their paint process that are not allowed in the states. The reason I remember is that the quality of the resultant paint is better, and the Germans feel strongly about maintaining the higher quality. My experience is the German paint is far superior to either the Japanese or American.
