This is interesting. So it's not a dealer scam. I wonder why BMW would simply not apply it to all cars it produces if it indeed enhances paint quality...

My thoughts exactly. It does sounds like a bit of a scam, (and I'm still realing from paying £300 for high-gloss window frames!). I will avoid parking under trees...

I know not the same but it sounds similar to a well known scam that dealers in the southwest like to pull. For a few hundred to grand in some cases, they tack on a dealer addon called "Desert Protection Package" which in simple terms is just a coating of armor all on the dash tires etc.. In fact 99% of all (higher priced makes are the worst here infact) car dealers here in nevada are outright crooks.

Hence why we purchase all our cars etc.. out of state.
