On my way to Oxnard beach (CA) this afternoon, I saw this pair right beside me. Nothing different from the other heavily camouflaged spy photos in the web. I just thought to post it anyway.

Im glad you were able to test drive one before making a decision! Being able to drive both models (with and without AD) is the best way to find out if that option is worth it to you. :thumbup:

I havent seen a BMW "Individual" Paint up close. Does it have a better finish (less orange peel effect), or its just simply a color upgrade with the same painting process like any other BMW?

You want each set of keys to connect to a particular phone? Delete both pairings first. Then plug in your key to the car and pair your phone. Then plug in the other key and pair your wife's phone.
