To the black 335xi owner parked outside Metro on Major Mack in Rich Hill

Dude (or dudette)....your black 335xi looked slick!

The car had a "E90Post.com" sticker on the right rear window so I know it's a member here.

How come your car looks so slick? Has it been lowered? Custom kidney grilles in the front I believe. Anything else?

If you dont know whether the car is lowered the answer is always its Not lowered. If its not lowered then its not "slick" :P

Don't do it. Softest clearcoat in the world. My black car looks like shi^ after a winter of hand washes. Ive had a few dark cars and this is easily the worst.

I know what you're saying....black doesn't look the greatest in winter but with tints, it can look quite good.

The thing about white/red is that it does look unique.

Is BSM just as soft as Jet Black? I thought it was Jet Black that was a PITA.

No, it isn't. For whatever reason (honestly, we've discussed it ad nasuem at autopia.org and no one really knows why), the flat colours (jet black, alpine white, crimson red tend to be painfully soft, whereas the metallics are actually reasonably hard. My sparkling graphite paint is rock solid.

Don't think you understand what I was saying. Its scratched to#$@%$. Swirls etc. White with red and Black wheels would be nice.

Well, it's possible they use a different clear on the metallics, or that they don't bake the flats at as high a temp, for whatever reason, or we're just crazy. Who knows? Bottom line is, jet black is a nightmare.

I think the re-painted panels are a bit soft, but the OEM stuff wasn't so bad if I recall correctly. I've had pretty good luck with jerez, but maybe I'm just lucky!

That's true, those bastards never told me they repainted my bumper during delivery.
