BMW 850I Five-Year Ceramic Coating

Growing up, the BMW 850i and the big brother, the BMW 850CSi with the heftier motor, were both staples in the DuPont Registry magazine that I picked up fairly frequently. I always had wanted the 850 growing up, and when the opportunity came from an Austin client that was willing to drive his 192 BMW 850i up to the Killeen/Copperas Cove/Harker Heights area, I was delighted at the opportunity to conduct an auto detail, one step paint enhancement, and five-year SB3 Coatings Alpha ceramic coating. 


Considering the age of this vehicle, the paint was in fairly great shape, having the slightly updated two-stage (base/clear) paint instead of the single-stage paint found on some similar models. Initially, I was almost certain that it would need a two-step compound and polish paint enhancement/paint correction prior to installing the five-year ceramic coating, but the scratches were fairly light and were polished out with just one step. 

Our thoughts

We are always a fan of charging the client as little as possible in order to deliver the same great product without overcharging for a service they don’t need or wouldn’t be happy with. Not only did this allow us to save the client some money, but it also shortened the time in which the job took to complete, and the client was able to hang out around Harker Heights while we completed it. 

After we finished conducting the paint correction/paint enhancement/polishing, we ceramic coated the exterior painted and plastic surfaces with SB3 Coatings Alpha five-year ceramic coating. After the BMW 850I Five-Year Ceramic Coating ,we then installed a two-year SB3 Coatings Vortex ceramic coating on the wheels, and a one-year SB3 Coatings Optic on the windshield.

SB3 Coatings (sb3coating.com) are great coatings, and are similar to other offerings we have had in the past. You may be more familiar with other brands’ offerings, so here is a quick reference to help you understand our transition.

 – The SB3 Coatings Solo is similar to Ceramic Pro Sport (although SB3 Solo has a one-year warranty whereas Ceramic Pro Sport has a six-month warranty)

– SB3 Coatings Omega is similar to Ceramic Pro Bronze (Ceramic Pro Top Coat) two year coating

– The SB3 Coatings Thirty3 is a three-year ceramic coating, which is a warranty period we have not had in the past.

– SB3 Coatings Alpha is a five-year coating, similar to the Ceramic Pro Silver (five-year) package, which uses Ceramic Pro 9H (one layer) and Ceramic Pro Top Coat (one layer). SB3 Coatings Alpha utilizes a single coating system which helps us get your vehicle back to you faster without sacrificing quality.

– The SB3 Coatings Trinity is a seven-year coating, which we did not offer previously with Ceramic Pro.

– SB3 Coatings Vortex is a two-year ceramic coating similar to Ceramic Pro Wheel & Caliper or Ceramic Pro 9H (when used on wheels).

– The SB3 Coatings Optic is a one-year ceramic coating similar to Ceramic Pro Glass, and is used on your windshield/glass surfaces.

We have access to many brands of ceramic coatings, and we always choose what is best for the client in their particular situation.
