Wheels aside, throw on a minor tune and exhaust. I think you'll want to hop back into bed with him after those mods.

I haven't seen a black one in person yet but the pics probably don't do justice on how nice it looks. I'm ordering a black one myself and planning on coating it to make it look even nicer.

You both won't be disappointed in the least. Need to get it coated though. It's the one caveat with black and probably why the take rate is so low. I'm getting mine done soon. It just won't stay clean without a multi-hundred dollar treatment. But when it is clean and glossy, no other color can compare.

Looking fantastic. And as much as I'd like to get BSM, Texas heat will make it almost unbearable. Besides, how do you keep your black cars streak free without wrapping it up fully?

Yea I totally agree coating a black car especially is recommended. What kind of coating are you planning on doing? I have the ceramic pro 9h "silver package" in mind.

Pearl Nano. The shop owner who did my tints swears by it. I'm sure it's just one of the many remarkable products currently on the market that provides the wet look. It's a 2 step application process preceded by a full detail that preps the paint by removing contaminants.

Never heard but any coating is better than no coating so either way it should look good. What tint % did you get for the BSM? I'm thinking about going with llumar ctx 15% all around and Air 80 for front windshield.

I did 20% all around, looks great. It's pretty damn dark. In fact, it's technically 10% too dark for PA laws. But tinting violations are like jay walking. Citations shouldn't be given unless other laws are being broken, such as speeding. Given the relentless sunshine in NV, 15% sounds ideal.

I didn't touch the windshield.

do the dealers in the US give the option to have the rear windows tinted or something? I've noticed a few cars in dealerships where the back has about 30% to 50%

I think mine is technically 18%. Do you remember what brand did you go with? Here in vegas a decent amount of people have darker than allowed which is 35%. But the cops here don't seem to care as it is hot as hell here in the summer.

Dealerships usually have someone in there doing tints for them. It's not uncommon to have some cars already tinted especially in very hot cities. Also some car's like SUVs have privacy glass which makes it seem darker but is technically not a tint.

Yea that should be atleast ceramic tint which is better than traditional dyed tints.

No idea. I've been trying to figure that out myself but they fit with no issues- square setup.

Can we get some more quality BSM pics up? I have 2 months to change my order and it's driving me bonkers. I'm leaning towards BSM but am also kind of keen to MG.

I was (am) in the same boat. I have a BSM ordered (week 7) and originally thought I wanted MG - a friend has an F80 MG that is gorgeous. Since it won't be a DD, maintaining a black vehicle will not be as tedious. Therefore, I went with BSM. Every BSM BMW I've seen looks fantastic (when clean!). I don't believe I will regret my choice. Even if I had the option of all colors BMW offers, I believe I would still elect BSM.

You don't need pictures. Get black but we're biased in this thread.
