Baby Pix: Ceramic-coated MSport Home from Detailer - Photo Gallery

Given the bad weather, short days and flat light of November in Chicago, hard to find ideal conditions for photographing our new X5. But here it is, more of less right from the detailer, the day before it goes into daily driver service.

40i MSport Mineral White over Black Vernasca with 4KT Anthracite-Brown Matte Poplar trim, 740M 20" wheels, and most all of the goodies. Had Modesta ceramic coating applied to the full exterior (paint corrected), and CarPro CQuartz protection applied to interior leather and fabrics.

These are totally unedited photos. No post-production color or other correction, cropping, etc. Normally I would do those things, but I have no time. (I'll leave the highly-produced visual fantasies to BMW marketers; here's what one of these looks like in real life.)

Enjoy the eye candy. Zero calories.

CA Fires

Hey ScottMZ3 (and our other friends impacted in one way or the other by the fires): as fun as it is to post pix and to celebrate how blessed my family is to be able to enjoy a new X5, my heart breaks for you guys. Hopefully the forecasted rain will help, the skies will clear, and you too will soon be able to share with us some great pix of your new ride. Peace, brother.

looks great! I'm not a huge fan of white but the coating really helps make it shine. On the note of ceramic coatings does anyone have a recommended installer in the DFW area?

Great pics. My wife and I just ordered one almost exactly like this (sans laser and leather dash)...Mineral White, M Sport, M Sport Brakes, Black Leather, Anthracite Brown Poplar Matte Wood Trim. Your pics helped us decide on the Anthracite trim.

I just got mine and did Anthracite Brown Poplar and I am so glad I ordered it, it is hands down the nicest trim I have had in a car, it basically has no brown hardly at all in it, looks very grey black and it is so rich being no glossy, love the look shows off the wood so much better and hopefully won't show all those micro scratches the gloss trim tends to get.
