The piano black panels both external and internal are very delicate and prone to scratches, has anyone found a good polish/cleaner to remove swirling and coat it to prevent damage?

Maybe a good coating (nano sealant) like Nanolex Si3D or Cquartz UK could help. A good traditional sealant like FK1000P or Soft99 Fusso could be good too.

I'm thinking of coating my car with Nanolex Si3D as soon as it arrives. Nanolex should last for 12 - even 24 months and has great sheeting/beading capabilities.

How do you apply this nano stuff?
Easy for a novice?
I've never really been into polishing/waxing cars. But then this is my first brand new car.

Thanks.

Basically it's just like applying normal wax and buffing off with a microfiber cloth. You just have to be very careful, that you carefully buff off all the residue. After the sealant has cured, any leftover residue can only removed with machine polishing. But applying these kind of nano sealants is not brain surgery, just follow the instructions to the letter and you'll be fine. :)

Bringing this back from a while ago but I've noticed a few light scratches pop up on the piano black interior and no idea how they've gotten there. I just hope it doesn't look a mess in a couple of years time! Has anyone managed to successfully protect it?
