F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

I had my car ceramic coated with Opti-Coat Pro when I took delivery of my 18 440 in September. They also did all of the glass, plastic and the rubber. So, it's all protected. Not having that, I'd suggest one of the Maguire's products that is meant for plastic and rubber. It's real easy to do and you will be happy!

I use Aerospace Protectant 303. It's formulated to protect against UV sun fade. It's well known in the auto detailing community. Check it out:

I second this recommendation. Been using 303 for years now with good results.
