Wrapped my roof in gloss back vinyl. Ordered a matte black M performance spoiler, will paint it gloss black. Cannot afford the other accessories I like.

Yes, you can totally apply them over the PPF.

Has anyone gotten the Portimao Blue and regretted it? I ordered a PB with Oyster interior. I have one week to change my color option if i wanted. I have been looking at all the different pics on this site of Portimao Blue and other colors. Couple color combos that are nice out there. So I was wondering what your thoughts are of the color in person if you have taken ownership of a PB 330i. any input is helpful.

If you're not 100% and having second thoughts go with BSM or DG .... can't go wrong with either..

I originally wanted DG but I went with the 330i. It wasn't offered unless I paid a steep premium for individual paint. I was also contemplating BSM but any black is hard to keep clean especially in NYC. I've had 5 white cars so I know I don't want white. So I'm torn between PB and BSM. PB is more bold so I was just curious what those who have PB think of it.

I'm also trying to decide between PB and BSM. I have BSM now and am OK with the maintenance but the beating the front bumper takes from sand and road gravel gives me pause. I've always had a thing for blue cars so I'm drawn to PB but my ideal shade would be just a tiny bit deeper.

BSM:
Classy*
Rich*
Sexy*
*only when clean

PB:
Pretty color
Sporty
Unique

Gofast182: My thoughts exactly. BSM is everything you said but needs to be clean. I also think the blue is sexy and sporty. I had a 2014 4 series in Estoril. Beautiful and got a lot of compliments. PB is deeper than that but also agree my ideal blue would be even deeper. Love both colors but right now Im leaning toward the PB just to be different. Plus Im in NYC where 9 out of 10 cars are black. Curious what you decide.

Ceramic coating will do nothing to stop road grit from damaging the paint. Only PPF will do that.

San Marino Blue is utterly perfect IMHO. Tanzanite blue is OK, it looks phenomenal in the sun but looks lifeless otherwise.

I agree totally. I liked tanzanite and also felt it was just ok outside direct light. So wasn't worth the extra cost IMO. PB seems to be in the general family of San Marino.

The G20 looks so much more aggressive with the M Performance body parts. Are they carbon fiber or just black plastic?

Keeps the vehicle cleaner and makes it easier to wash and wipe off spotting, dirt, dust, etc. so- It makes maintenance easier...that is what the expressed concern was - maintainability? Yes.

No. That's not at all what I said. I said I'm OK with the maintenance it's the damage/beating it takes from sand/pebbles on the road.
