Black oxydizing

Anyone else had issues with the black trim oxydizing...i have had my car for two months and the trim is already lossing its shine. Dealership says they will have it buffed and that is what BMW recommends. Seems BMW would know better than use a trim that starts changing colors after two months.....

Also, my garage as not updated with my new car on the post info...i do have a 2006 M5. Any ideas how to get this switched?

This is a common problem - the good news is buffing will do the trick. I do that, then apply a coat of wax and it stays pretty clear through the carwashes. Here is the just released BMW service bulletin.:

The 5 series must have a different trim than on the 6 series.

The E63 (6 series coupe) is not mentioned in the bulletin but the E64 (vert) is.
