Looks like your car is finally in production? Btw, I paid with cash otherwise it might be $1200 fyi.
Have a VIN hasn't started yet.
I presume it will start after the holidays.

The car is fully wrapped.
JJ Mobile Detailing in Fremont. He says a full wrap alone is $5500. Paint correction and other bits of work are extra. The car is shiny, and the finish should not get any worse from this point on. http://www.jjmobiledetail.com
It's not a perfect job, but it's a good job for a good price. OCD nearby might do it somewhat better for 50%+ more money and with a much longer wait.

What ppf do they use? I really like xpel on my bumper it’s very hydrophobic smooth glide almost as if they did ceramic coating. I’m very close to Fremont never seen blue M50 only e40.

Ceramic Pro. He used their gen 2 product for 95% of the car and then put the thicker, harder to work with first gen product right behind the rear wheels. That's where, even after 300 miles before I got the car to him, there was already shit ton of chipping.

Another i4 added to the Bay Area. Picked mine up on 1/1/2023.
Congrats! Beautiful color.

Oh BMW Mountain View... My car's been there 3 times already -- first 2 visits to diagnose and order parts from Germany, then to install said parts. 3rd visit was for them to fix a rim they curbed during service during my second visit.

As for tints/ppf/ceramic, I had all 3 performed at Deep Reflections in Los Gatos. The owner, Alejandro, is a stand up guy and was easy to work with. Used XPEL for tint and ppf, and Feynlab for ceramic (I believe they offer both Ceramic Pro and Feynlab)

How is everyone's i4 holding up with the crazy weather?
Haven't tried to cross any rivers with it, but holding up well :) As mentioned in signature have 19" all season tires on it, car came from factory with Pirelli P-Zero's. Braking has worked when when I needed it.
