Generally, they say "no wax and no polish" for 30 days. A good shop will factor in the atmospheric pressure as well as temperature. they will make proper adjustments in their approach at different time of the year. I don't see any difference in getting it done now versus 6 months from now. Besides, it is probably driving you crazy right now having to look at the "Jack-up" front end everyday..... knowing how much you like and enjoy your car. The key is to to find a good paint shop. Good luck with this.

BTW.... do you have any more parts to sell. LOL
Hey P
You know a good paint shop in the East Bay? BMW Concord's body shop said they do bake the paint after spraying, but I think I'll wait until it gets warmer so the car can sit in the sun a bit before I have the clear bra reinstalled.
You can p/u my oe front sway bar for free if you want; it's stiffer than what's on your car; might reduce front roll a bit and won't affect ride quality.
