X3MC Sophisto Grey - Photos

Evening all,

Picked up an X3MC from the dealers last week, after almost a week at the detailers for a ceramic coating - picked it up again yesterday and what a beauty she is!!

Spec:
Sophisto Grey
Black Leather
Comfort Package
Pano Roof
Sun Protection Glass
Seating Heating - Front & Rear
Enhanced Bluetooth & Wireless Charging
Apple CarPlay

Really pleased with the ceramic coating detail - the guys at Initial Detail (North West UK based) did a great job

Products used were Car Pro CQuartz Professional Ceramic Coating x 2 and Car Pro CQuartz Gliss x 1.

Will get some more pictures under natural light soon.

The short of it (from what I recall - I didn't read the entire link) is there is a tag which indicates the orientation on the phone which doesn't translate into all OSs.

When using Windows 7 I downloaded a free app which you could right click a pic to change orientation.

I'm a huge fan of blue on a car, especially some of the BMW blues...Yas Marina, San Marino, Laguna Seca, Riviera and Mexico, all fabulous. However, I went for Donington Grey this time as it is lovely and is a change but this Sophisto looks maybe the best colour for the XMs, in my opinion. It's sumptuous.

How much was the detail and ceramic coating if you don't mind me asking?
