Mein Auto: Not worth mentioning

My advice was to return it to the dealer, but we both live some distance from the BMW store. In the interium, has anyone experienced this, or simular, and is there a cure? Thanks,
So far, I only heard of problems with the area between the front and rear side-windows (you know, the exterior area where the front safety-belt is mounted on the interior). This area fades out quite fast (some dealers say due to the car-wash chemicals and BMW recommends washing by hand..). Mine shows some 'drops' on it and some areas with a slightly different contrast. So far, you don't notice it unless you're looking for it.

I can only assume this is a similar problem on your friends car. I don't know if there's a cure..
