  1. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    My current BMW has some extremely deep scratches on it's roof. See picture below. (Don't mind the rubbers, replacements are on the way.) What would be the best way to handle these? Should I try and DIY sand/paint it or bring it in to a paint shop? Any advice would be appreciated!
  2. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    Hi y'all, this is my first post. Honestly, I don't belong in this crowd who are so passionate, knowledgeable about their cars and treat it like a baby. I happen to own a jet black 2015 BMW X5, with very low miles on it (22K) and great engine/interiors (regular servicing, oil changes etc)...

    Brand New in box, never opened, 2 different 3M paint protection kits for front of X5 for E53 model Both were purchased by me, brand new, and never opened. Car was sold. Paid close to $300 (way back when) for both items. I Will sell BOTH KITS together (brand new in to protect entire front of...
  4. Ask-A-BMW-Dealer
    Quick question, just bought an F36 in Imperial Blue ( a $700 extra according to my dealer’s sheet). But when I look up my car on various websites it doesn’t seem like that color is available on my car. Do these sites just not include premium colors? Is this color of some rarity which I did not...

    So the wife hit a pothole and damaged one of my rims on our 2015 BMW 435i xDrive. 18" silver rim. I think they refer to the color as Ferric Grey. I had the rim repaired by a local company. But in heating up the damaged area, it also damaged the powder coating on the surface. Since I don't...

    I have a 2006 bmw 530xi and I painted my caliper red yesterday and saw it looks nice. I have the black color of the car but my rims are stock 5 spoke alloy color. I want to make them darker, not black but gunmetal grey. I want to spraypaint them, caliper came out ok and I didn't even sand it...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I've had this thought before, but I'm curious if anyone else has ever done or heard of someone doing this? My thought would be you could wrap a car in a solid color vinyl, and then hand paint some cool designs on the vinyl. Maybe if you or someone you know was an artist. Thoughts?
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I had a strange and unfortunate incident and was looking for repair ideas or info for the DC area. The clear coat on the hood of my red '07 suddenly got water below the coat, shrank and then peeled off nearly entirely. I am shocked this happened as I wax and polish my car 2-3 times a year and...
  10. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    Hey everyone I'm planning on getting my rims resprayed to black, and I started to do a bit of research and I found that I could get something called powder coating. What is the main differences between powder coating or painting, and has anyone had their rims powder coated?

    Got my Mineral White 328d today and the previous owner used Alpine White touch up paint to try to fix some chips. Why would anyone do this, I don't know. Essentially I am in need of help on a few things. 1. What do you guys recommend for removing the paint that is the wrong color? 2. Are...
  12. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi All, First poster, regards to 2018 430 xdrive convertible. Feel free to give suggestions or links, but thinking of doing a DIY for this. Does anyone know the color code (or if its identical to another color of an earlier model) for the interior 'Night Blue Dakota' Making my father a...
  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I moved to northern California from Sandiego over the summer. Been working construction in a truck so didn't see the need to bring the 5 up with me. The college semester starts this week and I didn't want to go to school in the beat up work truck so I flew down to Sandiego and brought the 5...
  14. General BMW Questions
    Hello All, I recently purchased a 2015 BMW X3 and it had a little paint bubbling under the drivers side door window trim. Its clearly not caused by anything intentional and is a defect. Not sure why the paint would want to delaminate as this location. Is this something that would be covered...

    Does anyone know where I can buy a side mirror housing already painted? 2006 E90. I have found a few but these come primed only - not painted. Thanks all.
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I am gearing up to have the front bumper, hood and fenders repainted on my 5 series E39 and the labor involved in sanding and prepping the front bumper cover justifies maybe replacing the front bumper cover instead..?? Anyone have any experience with any of the aftermarket 'M' style font bumper...
  18. Pacific Northwest Region - AK, HI, ID, OR, and WA
    I'd like to clean up my E90 - it's got a bit scuffed over the years - dings on the edge of doors, a small bumper scuff from a garage, whirls from car washes, a few scraped rims. Has anyone had a good experience doing this with a Seattle-area body shop? This obviously isn't an insurance claim...
  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Had the car for years and it has had lots of owners where nobody knows the whole history at the time I bought it so it's only moving forward that I ask this question. Look at the pictures. I hopte they show up because I thing I just figured out in the last thread how to show them so you can see...
