Finally took the "new to me" 2012 X5 35d out for its photo shoot. It's a former BMW exec vehicle with 11k miles.

I know you didn't ask me, but you can look on Burger Motorsports website and find the item and the price.

Hi, I have a white 2011 335d. I'm considering getting tinted windows. What brand did you put on, and how has it worked for you?

I'm also considering getting paint protection. What did you use & why? What others did you consider, and why did you decide against them?

Thanks so much!

I used 3M film for my windows. It is the best, period. They invented it in 1966 and continually improve their film. Paint protection is a scam designed to make dealers money back that they gave up to make the sale. I like Meguires products for maintaining the paint.

Thanks for the info. When you say scam, I assume you're referring to the dealer teflon deals. I'm thinking about the 3m paint protection film. Has anyone had experince with it or heard of good/bad results?

Thanks much,

bill

I didnt realize you pointed it to me(old screen name). I got 3M tints and paint protection. It cost be about $800 in total. I read lot of online reviews which favored 3M. After 3.5yrs I feel like getting new tints. It doesnt feel as effective as it was when I got them installed.
Paint protection was a good investment. In 2 months I drove without it I had 2 paint chips due to debris on road and since then not a single one. This is one of disadvantages of Black car even a small chip is soo visible. Installer said based on maintenance film might turn yellowish but so far it looks good and difficult to notice.
I am planning to get car professionally detailed next month. I will put some updated photos then.

Thanks for the info.

What kind of paint protection did you use? Why are you replacing it now? Is it coming off or looking bad, like the tint?

Thanks,

bill

Awaiting good weather to take some photos, but in the meantime, here's a stock shot of my new straight-six 330d Touring xDrive F31 on its winter wheels. The grey looks much brighter in reality. Will post some shots when the weather improves ....

Looks great. Love the M sport and dark blue. Classy and sporty at the same time.

Well, it has a lot of stuff I would never had ordered. Some of it I am glad to have, other things are just silly extras. The diesel and cinnamon interior with multi contour seats were what I really wanted.

Overall, I am really happy with the X5d. I hope you enjoy yours as well.
