Cool That is a brilliant Idea!! lol

Hey Noushy,

Been following your thread an I really like what you have done with her. I know the Brilliant isn't a color that they spray on M6's so I was curious if you noticed any more or less orange peel effect anywhere on your M6? The one at the dealer has it and I have been reading that there are more than a few folks upset by it. I would be too, so I was curious if painting a "Special" color would help alleviate the effect...

Also, I assume you have been in contact with BMW Individual. Do you know if they will paint another manufacturers color like say Porsche for example, or are they limited to only colors that BMW has painted in the past?

Could you post a few more pix in the sun at various angles? I was thinking mineral white, or Imola, or LSB, or even Monte Carlo Blue...

Oh yea, I wanted to do a custom install of the V1 and or Jammer, let us know how your ciming with the install's....

pzzz

Paint

The paint is noticeably better than the stock colors, less peel, more wet sanding done in between layers. The peel is due to water based clear coat, previously oil based was used and no peel but the fumes are very toxic. They put more care into the paint and thus two extra layers with much more wet sanding results in better finish. However for $5000 it should be. I am told this takes up to a week instead of the usual one to two day paint finish

Smile hooked up!

I didn't know about the Wet sanding, but that alone could be worth it's weight in gold. Could you PM with your Individual contact person. I have a few more questions...

Thx

Individual

I had my center's general manager make the call to BMW NA regional who puts the order in. Every dealership should be able to do it. If I can help message me and I will see who they spoke with.
