Car Info: 2019 X5 xDrive40i, Alpine White

Purchased Car: 02/21/2019

Factory Options: Coffee Extended Merino Leather, Convenience package, Luxury seating package, Trailer hitch, Gesture control

Modifications: I had a detail man prep the car for coating. I applied CQuartz 3.0 UK to the outside and Optimum (20239) Opti-Seal to the inside wells of the doors, hatch, etc. Super durable coating that almost self cleans. Front areas got another coat of CQuartz the next day. Total cost - about $200 for prep and materials which included towels, CarPro Reload, etc. Had a body shop apply double black pinstripe which really gives it class. Front windows got Madico Black Pearl ceramic tint, 35%.
