BMW is working on a new type of paint that will effectively make those weekend wash and wax chores obsolete. The technology was first introduced on the BMW M Coupe concept at last year's Frankfurt's show. Don't expect the technology to be available any time soon, though. Says Timo Gobel, project manager for the coupe, "It is a big technical challenge. There are many changes necessary, from the factory paintshop to caring for the finish. We have no idea yet on how we will be able to repair it." Currently, the paint is being tested to measure its resistance to such common irritants as tree sap to tar to fingerprints.
