Re: Weather Tech floor liner problem

It fits fine but there's no way to secure them to the floor without installing the pegs that came with them but I can't figure it out. I may just have to put some Velcro under the liner.

Re: BMW wheel and tire insurance denied my claim

The RFT issues really is a joke. I got 3rd party insurance for less than half the ridiculous price BMW offered. They wanted like $1900 which is laughable. The service guy also told me they replace...

Re: Trunk won't open

Not sure but with the cigarette outlet there are some fuses in trunk as well as glove box. It was a pain to find the right one.

Re: Paint protection, clear bra and sealants

I don't seem to have the same experience but it could be due to the opticoat. I also don't do a lot of highway driving but even the bugs I do get come off in an instant. I love the opticoat.

Re: Paint protection, clear bra and sealants

What's a clear bra costing these days? Seems to me painting the bumper every few years maybe be cheaper and get better results.

Re: BMW App for Android

I really find no use for it. We can do it all on our phones. I have an iPod touch in my car and never ever find a need to use the apps through the car.

Re: clear bra or opti coat

Love love the opticoat. Makes washing so easy and I think it lasts a few years not sure.

Re: Mercedes black vs BMW Jet Black

Thanks for the input. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't going crazy. So it does seem the MB black looks better.

Re: Opti-Guard paint sealant?

Ita great stuff but it won't give you that super slick shine like wax so I topped it with some Mother's carnuba and it looks and feels slick.
