ok, I scimmed the first page on the bmw section but to be honest, I know nothing about the whole "number" system goin on so for me to find what I was looking for was kinda....awkward. but thanks for the link I appreciate it

no sweat doug,,, just be smart and cover the rear deck area, don't soak the door to bad and you'll be just fine, don't let the horror stories get to ya because that only happens to guys who A: don't know what there doing or B: don't care,

I turn my spray nozel to a fine mist when I spray the glass in Bmw's and use a heavier spray setting on the film as I peel the release liner, seems to cut the water issue down by half...squeegee the doors with side strokes from top down(helps push the water out instead of down inside the door panel),,, also use some very fine sand paper on the dots (doors) and your film will stick better..

are you doing a hard top or soft top?

the numbering system is actually pretty smart. It refers to the cars "class" and then engine size. a 318 has a 1.8l, a 335 has a 3.5l, a 535 has a 3.5l, etc etc.

does the "c" mean its a convertibale? im assuming hard top. if it was a soft top convertible im sure they woulda said something, guess I could always call and double check with them tomorrow. I've seen pics of these cars and they look like cake, I've just seen some posts here and there where they claim the customer comes back claiming something "electronical" doesn't work so I definately wanna avoid this. and I know exactly what you mean by adjusting the nozzle to a fine mist I will definately do that

sorry scotty but your wrong there, numbers havent worked like that for years

318 - 2.0 127/141bhp

320 - 2.2 148bhp

323 - 2.5 177/203bhp

325i - 3.0 218bhp

328i - 3.0 233bhp

335is - 3.0 twin turbo 320bhp

325d - 3.0 194bhp

330d - 2.9td 228/242bhp

335d - 2.9td 269/282bhp

523i - 2.5 188bhp

528i - 3.0 230bhp

530i - 3.0 255bhp

535i - 3.0 twin turbo 300bhp

550i - 4.8 360bhp

530d - 2.9td 235bhp

535d - 2.9td 268bhp

and so it goes on

the "c" eg- 320ci stands for coupe (also on cabrio as it is still technically a coupe) an "x" stands for 4x4 eg- 325ix 525ix X5 X3 X1 all 4x4, and back in the day "t" stood for compact eg 318ti always a compact never a saloon

lots of bmws dont actually refer to their badges

anyway the numbering system I think he is refering to is the design codes eg- 3 series e30 83-91, e36 3series 91-98, e46 3 series 98-05, e90 e91 e92 e93 3 series 06>, 5 series up to 96 e34, 5 series 96-03 e39, 5 series 03-09 e60/e61, mk1 X5 - e53, mk2 X5 - e70 etc etc
