Those gooze bumps suck, but you don't really see them from 2 feet away, so I personally told my brain to just shut up about it

A detailer will wetsand it.

BMW is just too cheap to wetsand at the factory, and skips this step.

So it is an actual fix. The paint is made smooth. If orange peel really bothers anyone, just have this done like several other BMW owners have.
