My '22 San Marino Blue M3 xDrive on Fjord Blue/Black w/Expel PPF, Ceramic and Tint

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So after trading my X4M Comp as an early trade-in way back in early June and having to switch dealerships along the way, I finally picked up my M3 on 30 Dec 2021. I drove if home from Chicago to Dayton Ohio on it's summer tires in the cold rain and then down to Cincinnati the next day for Expel PPF on all forward facing areas, full roof and skateboards along with a full ceramic coating to include the entire rimes and calipers and ceramic tint.

I love the Fjord Blue, it looks better than I expected. Pictures don't really seem to look right for it but it really looks good.

I finally got it back today, just to have to park it for the winter.

I got Ryan@ IND-Distribution to set me up with the following;

BMW M Performance Carbon Side Marker Set - Installed
IND Painted Hood and Trunk Roundels - Installed
AutoTecknic Carbon Seat Back Cover Set - Installed
Indi Carbon Air Vent - Installed
BMW Slimeline Carbon License Plate Frame - Installed

Sorry for the crappy pictures, I will try to get some good ones once things warm up a bit.

I will quickly exhaust the supply of applicable adjectives while trying to describe this magnificent marvel of color engineering by San Marino Blue Inc. Will not even try.

Love the silver wheels. Great choice!

My last 3 cars have been Estoril, Tanzanite, and now Misano. I think San Marino may be my next blue car. Killer.

The G80 has truly grown on me. Congrats! Looks amazing.

Huh. Quite close to Interlagos. Probably would have gone with a contrasting interior color myself but looks good!

No, that was at the shop where I got the PPF and ceramic done at, but it did look good!
