I've had a few AMGs with matte paint…repairing it is no different than any other paint.

Anytime you are going to paint, a good body shop will typically repaint entire panels. This is probably the only difference with the matte (or frozen as BMW has coined it), it will almost always require a full panel to be repainted.

I've never been a fan of the PPF, either the film gets chipped or the paint…either way you can see it. And for the cost of PPF, you can get a lot of paintwork done.

Just my experience.

And also, OP, your car is amazing.

Absolutely love the way the colour has turned out - it really does show off the lines of the car like nothing I've ever seen. The wheels look even better in real life - but I do wonder about them being frozen gold or a two tone with some darker colour as the other tone.

M Performance 863M wheels
M Performance front splitter (3 parts)
M Performance carbon side sills
M Performance decals


Still to be fitted hopefully next week when they arrive:
M Performance side gills in carbon
CS rear boot spoiler - I prefer this to the M Performance one.

Here are some photos from collection day:

Rear really doesn't look right without a boot spoiler (hopefully this week!). Also need to get all that black plastic swapped for carbon or something sometime.

What an amazing machine - it feels like the tech has moved on since the F90 I had around launch for a while. Few things initially noticed: Brakes feel very good even when cold. Start stop starts the engine if it notices the car in front move forward.

Thanks for the kind comments all.

My M5 was at the BMW dealer having the CS spoiler and carbon side gills installed.

The spoiler TRANSFORMS the car. It looked so wrong without it IMO. I much prefer the CS to the pro spoiler - just seems more natural. Needs a clean but here are a few photos...

Next I need to sort the exhaust, diffusor and that black plastic around it all.
