G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

I bought my car at the same dealership (Motorwerks BMW in Bloomington MN) as OP. I've been planning to remove those three stickers for a few months and keep forgetting to do so.
Thatís interesting to say the least. Maybe my theory is full of water. Need to get our sales person to respond. I donít have the Sirius XM sticker, but do have it.

Sticker is to show that Diamon-Fusion has been applied to your windshield.



And their youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/DFIsolutions

Enjoy.

Finally something that makes sense. And the trademark is exactly like what
I have. I do find it odd that obviously Motorwerks uses this but it isn't mentioned anywhhere. I doubt it is free.

Thank you!

Enjoy.
A chemical bond between molecules!!!!! This is Nobel Prize worthy stuff!

Sounds like Rusty Jones for the new millennium. If it helps keep soft German glass from pitting from road debris, I'd be all for it. But that does not seem to be one of its extravagant complaints. Oh well. At least the OP didn't pay for it - as far as he knows.

No, I did not pay for it, for sure. The glass was made in the UK, not Germany. Still waiting for
Motorwerks to respond with more info. Also this was the third BMW we bought from them, the others didn't have that treatment. Or at le ast it didn't have the decal. I wish they would do something about the film that covers the inside of all the glass. That's not just a BMW problem though.

Also check to make sure the rain sensor works. Just a thought. Bought an '08 E60 and the rain sensor never worked. Found out the windshield had been replaced but the sensor never reconnected. Easy fix but a good way to know if it's a stock windshield.

Thanks but I have confirmed that the WS was never replaced. Blue Diamon is a glass treatment.

It was a joke man ... I get a laugh out of how exacting we all are about our BMWs; this forum is like a collection of former student council presidents. Iím also frequently impressed with how much we have to scratch to find stuff to grouse about, as well as the talents for escalating issues to top BMW management. Like Iím going to get the CEO of BMWNA to solve the issue that the felt inside the little storage puka by your knee isnít as good as on my beloved F10 (not to mention that it is too small to hold my polarized sunglasses that donít work with the HUD).

Seriously, I appreciate (and resemble) you all, and am glad we have a venue to share our passion (mostly) for these beasts.

BTW, I did read the entire thread (a good cure for insomnia), and agree the ďBlue Diamond MysteryĒ is solved. Enjoy your ride!
