Even BMW of NA has acknowledged the fact that there is a problem. That is how they came up with the stone guard kit with 3m film. However, they don't install it at the factory. It looks like most dealers don't want to install if for free but all of them repaint the car and install this kit after the damage is already done. It doesn't make sense to me.
BMW NA Did not come up with the stone guard kit from 3M, 3M did that. They have had it for a long time for a great number of vehicles, not just the X5M.
