Question 1: Can anyone comment on the quality of work done by Extreme Colors? Question 2: Does anyone know what BMW recommends in terms of time before it considers a vehicle's paint to be cured? Question 3: Is the film more apt to be visible on a black car vs. a lighter colored car?

Thanks in advance to all who can shed light on my questions.
not sure on the company you're interested in but if they don't do a full vinyl wrap, i wouldn't bother. i had this done on my space gray m3 and the entire hood is wrapped without a seam. there are several small barely visible seams on the bumper because of the curvature but the bumper, front fenders and side skirts are all 100% wrapped and the seams tucked away and not visible. i don't know why people would consider the half bra with knowledge of the full wrap. that powerdome is pretty pronounced and likely to get tagged by road debris, i'd want it protected.

not that i can directly answer your second question, but i drove mine from the dealership (on re-delivery after my ED) about 5 minutes down the road to the vinyl installer and have had no problems. the guy who did it has done plenty of bmw's fresh from the dealership without issue.
