According to the manual the C-HR has a self restoring coat for very small scratches. I would be interested to learn more about this. I did a small search and found that Lexus/Infiniti/Nissan models have something similar. Does anybody know how this works?

I would be interested to know how this will be added to the paint by local dealers if you want to paint a body part.

I also want to find out what types if car polish/wax/coatings should not be used on this coat. What is considered non-abrasive wax? I was thinking of doing a coat of nanolex si3d on my car but now i am not so sure.

I don't know how the paint works. But after somebody damaged my car. The paintshop told me that the paint recepie contained a restoring coating. They did reapply it.

According to my painter it is a bit ´soft´ so dont use a heavy polish or compund on it. A wax or coating is no problem.

I asked nanolex if i can use their ceramic coating and they said si3d is not abrasive so coating is not a problem. They did say that the additional coating might stop Toyota's healing coat from working but they did say that self healing lacqueres just don't work properly. An SI3D layer or a similar product will add better scratch protection.

Correct. A good layer of was or coating can prevent scratches..the self healing paint itself dont have any protection.
