View Full Version : Should I detail a new BMW with Innovection, BMW's original body coating?

Hello everyone,

Happy Holidays.

I recently received my new 2012 BMW F30 320i xDrive and realized that the dealer put Innovection, BMW's original body coating, on it. I had wanted to wash, clay, and wax the car but am now unsure if I should do it or not.

Regarding Innovection, I searched the Net and only could find links in Japanese. Is Innnovection just for the Japanese market? It says that Innovection is BMW's original body coating.

So what should I do, the car is brand new and I really want to keep it in the best condition possible? Should I wash and wax the car even with the body coating already on it? Would putting wax on it harm the coating?

Any advice would be really appreciated.
