So the overspray is now gone. I did not use claybar but instead used an Auto Scrub Nanoskin pad. I have to say the pad worked great and was easier and faster to use than clay.

That was my initial reaction but he did a great job, low price etc. If all it takes is claybar to get it off, I will just take care of it.

My wife and I found the Sheraton Airport-Munich quite adequate last year. We plan to stay there next year. I think it's about 7,000 (SPG) starpoints for a standard room.

I guess it would make sense then to stay in an outlying area on a rail line and do day trips into Paris. Any suggestions on places to stay under this scenario?

Just had my 2014 550i coded by Octopump. He was in CA and I was in NC. Easily done over the internet by remote. Highly recommended.

I think with my car it's an overheating issue. In the winter when cold but still sunny it did not happen. It seems that cooling more than darkness improves the problem for me.
