Let’s get philosophical today!
Someone once said; “without a solid foundation, you will have trouble building anything of value.”
While this quote may be fairly obvious and applicable to different parts of our lives, what many fail to consider is the treatment of their brand new vehicle.
Why “detail” a brand new car? It’s brand new!
Properly preparing and protecting your new car, truck, SUV or boat is critical to start its life on the right foot and, when the time comes (it always does), maximize its monetary value when its time for a replacement. Additionally, protecting your new vehicle from the start will make it more enjoyable to drive and own throughout the time it is yours by making it easier to keep clean. At M Reflections Auto Aesthetics, we take a holistic approach to new vehicles and recommend addressing all of its surfaces instead of just the paint. When it comes to a vehicle, the whole is truly greater than the sum of its parts.
More often than not, a brand new car will be delivered to its new owner with an array of undesired “options.” Swirls from polishing, random marring from carelessness on the lot and even overspray from having to touch up a ding or two are very common. Dealerships will often apply heavy glazes and waxes to hide these transgressions. Our new car prep not only provides protection, it first properly polishes the paint to eliminate or minimize these undesirables.
The coatings available today for your paint make it look amazing and provide great protection. While not cloaks of invincibility, they provide a measure of protection that reduces the introduction of fine imperfections brought on by washing which over time, multiply and make your paint appear dull and lifeless. Additionally, they help keep paint cleaner by their hydrophobic properties. Similarly, wheel coatings keep wheels cleaner for longer and make them easier to clean. They are formulated to withstand the harsh materials wheels come in contact with (salt, etc) as well as the high temperatures wheels see as part of their daily lives. Protecting your trim while it is still new will prevent it from fading for a longer time which really takes away from the vehicle’s appearance regardless of how nice your paint is. Lastly, protecting your exterior glass, keeps it cleaner for longer and adds a level of safety to driving in the rain since water glides off the treated surface as you drive.
The interiors of our vehicles seems to be a place that is forgotten rather than prioritized. We all love glossy paint and mirror reflections but often neglect the place where we spend so much time. Properly protecting the plastics, fabric and leather surfaces inside will ensure its beauty lasts a long time by preventing UV degradation and making stains a worry of the past. Today’s interior treatments are wonderful in that they preserve and protect while not changing the look and feel of the materials to which they are applied. Most importantly, IGL costings are safe for you and your family by not containing harmful chemicals that evaporate into your interior for everyone to inhale.
At M Reflections Auto Aesthetics, we offer a full line of protection from IGL Coatings. We can fully protect your new vehicle to ensure the preservation of its beauty and value for years to come.
