I have a feind type A in white. I love the look of it but I’m always riding and getting marks and dirt on it making it look pretty shitty. I know about that ceramic coating people put on their cars just not sure how well it will work on bike frames (due to different paint process or whatever). Any tips help thank you

Don't take it too far, BMX bikes aren't going to look pretty after riding.

Just give it a wipe down after every session.

You could buy some cheap paint protection film if it really bothers you. I see it sold mostly for cars but it will work on a bike if you can cut and wrap it neatly.

Get this stuff. We use it on certain tune ups in the shop, I've seen mud-water bead off a frame leaving it spotless. Stuff is INSANE.

Yeah I realize not many people do this. XD

The road I ride down to get to the park is silty and dusty.

Back when I was a kid and had a few really nice BMX bikes..

We rode the sh!t out of them and I'd wash them pretty frequently, use Meguiars detailing products on them. My mom would get pissed at me getting her towls/washcloths greasy and how many paper towls I'd use...

My bike was always gleamin though...

But ultimately give your bike a good look over every few weeks (or more often if you are nuts and jump off stuff a lot) to check for cracks etc.

As to cleaning, whenever it bugs you.

I have had white frames before, those mr clean magic erasers helped keep it looking fresh but ultimately riding is hard on bikes, especially paint.

Chrome has been the only coating that I have run that did not end up covered in shoe marks and whatnot.

Highest % Isopropyl alcohol you can find and a microfiber rag. Just rubbed down my friends white cult last weekend because it bugged me. Brand new again.
