Bon Vivant Paint Protection Coating | Gtechniq Crystal Serum & Exo | Porsche Macan

Another beautiful Porsche has come to Bon Vivant for our paint correction and coating service as our client just received the SUV as a pre-owned purchase.

Looking slightly tired on the exterior due to swirl mark scratches, we corrected the paintwork to get it ready for Gtechniq Crystal Serum and Exo paint protective coatings for a darkened and slick finish emulating a quality show wax. Once all finished, you’d be convinced that it was a brand new vehicle and not one that has seen the roads for almost two years.

This Porsche Macan also opted for the Gtechniq coating. See how it turned out.

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Film & Window Tint | BMW 650i

One of only 4 Australian delivered Limited Edition 650i M Sport Gran Coupe came to our workshop for an extensive list of works to protect it for meticulous and caring owner.

We received it directly from the dealership unwashed as instructed to allow us to prepare it thoroughly without the hindrance of fighting waxes and silicone glazes. The entire bodywork was corrected to a high degree after an intensive wash twice over and decontamination stripping it of any ferrous and organic contamination. This laid the foundation for a full front end wrap in clear bra which included the entire bonnet, guards, bumper, side mirrors and headlight. Once settled we coated over the top with Opti-Coat Pro+ ceramic coating for extra gloss and protection against chemical stains such as animal excrement, pollen spores, sap and iron dust. The wheels were removed and also coated entirely as with the painted black calipers to fight against brake dust. Windows were completely tinted with Johnson Window Films nano ceramic InsulatIR for uncompromised heat, infra-red and UV rejection. The leather interior and fabric was also treated with a flexible coating system to prevent the penetration of liquids and oils for easier cleaning if an accidental spill happens. Once finished, it returned to the dealership for handover to our client whilst we await his next vehicle to arrive.

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Coating | Opti-Coat Pro+ | Ducati 959 Panigale

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Coating | Opti-Coat Motorcycle Protection | Ducati 959

We had this beautiful 959 superbike come in directly from the dealership on the day it was purchased to have the paintwork polished and protected with Opti-Coat Motorcycle Protection.

Needing a multi-stage correction to remedy the buffer trails and swirl marks on the paintwork, the finished result yielded a sharper and deeper finished solid red now weather-proofed preventing oxidation as well as on the frame, exhaust and poly-carbonates.

Having the coating installed means the owner will now be able to spend more time riding than worrying as the self-cleansing hydrophobic effect created on the surfaces installed with the aftermarket coating will stay cleaner for longer and easier to clean after that beautiful road trip or track day.

The 959 Panigale is a breath-taking masterpiece in design, now aesthetically improved by our team at Bon Vivant Automotive Care.

Bon Vivant Premier Package | Rolls Royce Ghost detailed and coated

Bon Vivant Premier Package | Rolls Royce Ghost

Dealing with luxury at its finest, a good client of ours has returned for the third time with his recently acquired Rolls Royce Ghost in bespoke two tone matte Cassiopeia Silver and metallic grey.

It was a challenge to improve on such a marvellous piece of artistry from factory as each vehicle spends months with the finest craftsmen during the manufacturing process. Of course, we were able to identify minor imperfections during its first hand ownership which we either corrected, cleaned or protected. Both the exterior and interior were coated for long term protection benefits, as well as aesthetically improve the respective materials we detailed.

A hugely satisfying project for our team as we worked on one of the most prestigious and respected brands in the world whilst further building our relationship with a loyal and trusting client.

Once we finished the hard work, me made sure we made some time to soak in opulence and details of the Ghost, studying everything to its 6.6 litre V12 twin turbo engine to all the finest exotic materials found in the cabin space. A nice and luxurious detail were the umbrellas discreetly tucked away in the door to ensure the VIP occupant stays dry leaving the super saloon on those rainy days.

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Melbourne | Opti-Coat Pro+ | Ford Mustang GT

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Coating | Opti-Coat Pro+ | Ford Mustang GT

A uniquely styled pony car came to us for our Opti-Coat Pro+ paint protective coating service referred to us by an old customer.

Even though the Mustang was relatively new being less than a month old, as with every coating job we do the fastback GT model was given an extensive preparation including a pampering pre-wash to break down dealership applied waxes and glazes before being safely hand washed. Our two part decontamination sets us from the crowd as it ensures ferrous and organic contamination is completely lifted from the paint prior to being polished. We don’t just do it by hand, our professionally trained team do so with the latest dual action random orbital machines for extremely potent correction and consistent high gloss finish.

Now a shining example which is even better than new, we’ll be seeing her often as various parts would be added and changed to make this a stand out example in Melbourne. As this blog is being written, some very desirable aftermarket pieces were on order to modify the Mustang GT even further than what it is now. We wonder how far the changes would go?

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Coating | Gtechniq | Porsche Macan GTS

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Coating | Gtechniq | Porsche Macan GTS

Another glorious Macan GTS has been visually enhanced and protected by the team at Bon Vivant.

We gave this 2 weeks old compact SUV our higher tier of preparation coupled together with Gtechniq Crystal Serum and Exo coatings on both paintwork and wheels. Wheels were removed for complete coverage as well as the massive red calipers. We also added a high impact paint protection film kit covering door edges, door cups and the top of the rear bumper to prevent the usual daily scuffs.

The Macan now looks even better than the day it was picked up from the dealership and protected with the UK’s leading technology in paint protection to fight against weathering over the long team such as oxidation, swirl mark scratches, scuffs and staining.

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Melbourne | Opti-Coat Pro+ & Window Tint | Volkswagen Passat Alltrack

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Coating | Opti-Coat Pro+ | Volkswagen Passat Alltrack

A new 2017 Passat Alltrack from a long standing returning client was given our new car treatment with Opti-Coat Pro+ and Johnson Window Films darkest legal tint all around.

A returning client with his demonstrator model Passat wagon was given our protection treatment with Opti-Coat Pro+ ceramic coating on the bodywork and Johnson Window Films solar control film on glass and panoramic sunroof to keep the cabin space an even more pleasant space to be. With industry leading specifications and visual clarity for both our coating and window film recommendations, this Passat has the edge over other examples around Melbourne.

The gloss black B-pillars were wrapped with clear paint protection film to prevent them from scratching due to the very soft material used by Volkswagen. Even with a coating, they would be prone to scratching so a urethane film was the only real long term solution. The interior and wheels were given a liberal clean to deliver that new car feel once again for our client, picking up from where the dealership left off.

Ensuring that our work is better than any dealership could offer, the Alltrack underwent our proven and methodical preparation processes to reach the results you see here. If you’re planning to buy a new car or receiving one in the near future, give our team a call  on (03) 9681 9770 to discuss suitable solutions including films, coatings and GPS tracking units tailored to your vehicle and needs.

Based in Williamstown, Victoria, we are conveniently located less than 20 minutes drive from Melbourne’s CBD.

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Melbourne | Opti-Coat Pro+ | Tesla Model S P90D

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Coating | Opti-Coat Pro+ | Tesla Model S P90D

Arguably the most unique Tesla Model S on the streets of Melbourne, this performance oriented P90D model came to us completely wrapped in satin grey vinyl.

We were tasked to prolong the life of the vinyl by installing Opti-Coat Pro+ and also on the complete wheels to make them easier to clean of brake dust and grime. This was a unique project for us as the fully electric sedan was vinyl wrapped, there was no need to polish the paintwork as there was none left exposed. What it did mean though is that we had to ensure the vinyl pores were clinically clean so that the ceramic coating could bond well for at least the next 7 years.

The interior was treated to Gtechniq I1 Smart Fabric & L1 Leather Guard flexible coatings for anti-microbial properties and slow down the rate of wear from abrasion of getting in and out of the car. It also helps with the cleaning up in case any sugary liquids are spilt, although we doubt any drinking or eating will take place in this electrifying beauty.

All glass was given a liberal application of Polishangel Rain 9H to enhance visibility when driving through the wet. A single application will last easily over 12 months and prolongs the life of the windscreen wipers and promotes better safety.

We very proud to having a part in working on this very unique example. Are you thinking of purchasing a Tesla? Make sure you contact us for more information on how we can help and have it booked in.

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Coating | Gtechniq | Mercedes Benz C63S AMG Coupe

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Coating | Gtechniq | Mercedes Benz C63S

A truly stunning car from all angles, the C63S coupe in Diamond White would put a smile on anyone’s face, from admiring its curves to reading through the spec sheet, the car just oozes class and performance.

We put the AMG through our new car prep to have it ready for Gtechniq Crystal Serum coating topped with Gtechniq Exo. Prior to that, although in almost perfect condition, the gloss and clarity of the paint suffered from what’s described as a dry finish not being able to reflect well. So to address this it was given a heavy correction to expose that beautiful metallic fleck in the paint and give those reflections more definition by reducing that dryness without having to resort to wet sanding OEM paint. Refining with various grades of fine abrasives, we finally reached a balancing point of achieving a better than factory finish without compromising the structural integrity of the paint by levelling down excessively. The wheels were removed for full wheel coating also with Crystal Serum as were the lustrous red calipers as a means of colour locking them from fade and staining due to any heavy cleaners, Remounted to factory specs, we finished off with ensuring every detail around the car was addressed including polishing the chrome finished keys as requested by the owner. Certainly a great looking sports car which can dress the part of elegant tourer at any given time, we’re glad to have been able to help improve and protect its appearance for the many years to come.

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Melbourne | Opti-Coat Pro+ | Jaguar XE 2.5t

Bon Vivant Paint Protection Coating | Opti-Coat Pro+ | Jaguar XE 2.5t

Another sensational Jaguar XE has graced our workshop for its new car paint protective coating service.

This time we had the gracious feline treated with Opti-Coat Pro+ for cost effective, long term ceramic protection against the elements after we intensively fixed up dealership pre-delivery bungles, again. Heavy holograms or otherwise known as buffer trails riddled the lower half of the entire car which lead us to conclude it was a means of trying to remove stubborn tar and other road grime or deeper scratches. A multi-stage correction cleaned up these defects for a better than showroom finish. This meant a finish that is now glossier, deeper, wetter and clearer than it was before. We aim to minimise visual imperfections as best we can but of course constantly keep in mind not to compromise the structure of the paintwork by excessively levelling down the paint; a key indicator of a detailing professional who understands paint and paint correction.

Upon their arrival once completed our clients both noticed the clarity of the metallic flecks which was completely muted before. Happily parting ways, we were very pleased to have helped deliver a new car as it should’ve been from the dealership.

At Bon Vivant, we strive to give you that new car feeling that you may’ve missed out due to poor workmanship of lack of pride from the pre-delivery team. Let us demonstrate what we’re renowned for, call us on (03) 9681 9770 to book in your car.

See how this other beast turned out after Opti-Coat Pro+ applied.
