Amazing! I'd vote for standard Xpel as the pop of that paint is just 🔥🔥 Stealth will matte it correct?

How's that seat protector under the car seat?
That's the Clek Mat-Thingy. Very thick rubber and good protection to the seat. It doesn't have seat back protection though. We have used it for 3+ years. A minor issue is dust will stick to the rubber and would require a wet wipe.

Yeah I'm still debating as well. I saw a few photos of an MBB M5 wrapped in Stealth that looks very hot. I did read about the upkeep of matte PPF would be worse than standard, like water streaking. And I'm worried that small imperfections will be more obvious (like unrolled edges).

You can see the sizes clearly if you zoom in.

On the same note, I was surprised to see BMW fitted 21 in the front is 22 in the rear, that's weird and unnecessary? Why 2 sizes on an SUV?

Porsche has done it on their new 992 Turbo (20&21).

The light issue you mentioned, that's the parking light. Supposedly a Euro thing cause they can park facing oncoming traffic.

I know on the newer cars it's a button but on the older ones you can just hold you turn signal stock up for the left light or down for the right light. It's pretty cool I guess?

But 992 is a sport car, not an SUV. Also,
I can understand M4 GTS, M3 CS, & M4 CS all have double stagger because they are built for track/street, but SUV??

The benefits of staggered diameter wheels don't disappear when you use it on an SUV. It is odd seeing it on an SUV, but it still makes sense from a handling dynamics perspective.

OP congrats on the new ride! It's just gorgeous!

- The mats should fit the same...they didn't re-design the floorpan for the M model.

- Others are spot on with the one DRL being on. You likely bumped one of the buttons with your knee on your way out of the car and it turned on the running lights on one side of the car. They'll stay on until the battery gets below a certain threshold (would take a LONG time) or until you get in and either turn it off or turn the engine on.

- For the driving aids, check BMW's YouTube page. They have tutorials showing how those all work. That, or get in touch with a Genius at your local dealership.
