How soon can I coat?

We picked up are X5 last night, it was built this month and I would estimate it was painted early last week or week of October 12th.

Old school rule was always 30 to 45 days to do paint correction.

Still the same?

I had mine paint correct and ceramic coated done a week after PCD delivery. Was planning to have it done there in Greenville/Spartanburg right after delivery but timing didn't work out.

Typically not a lot of paint correction is needed on a brand new BMW esp. if you're doing PCD and the car is not even going to the dealer. I think 2 to 3 weeks is sufficient to wait but to be sure I recommend checking with your detailer.
