This is also in the manual under the wiper section I believe as well.
Are you kidding me? Wow. I cannot believe you have to go through all that hassle. Thanks though!! Still trying to figure out how to use the manual in the idrive.

I am also a big supporter of the clear bra for saving the front end of the car. Have it on both of my cars and on former cars (it is on the lower part of the hood, the bumper, lights and mirrors). Never had a problem with it yellowing - but apparently this will happen if some kinds of waxes are used.

Here are photos of both of my cars. The 335 photos were taken just after Optiguard was applied in December. It went on over the clear bra as well as the rest of the car. The 135 is a sun car as it is a convertible - that car is 3.5 years old and no yellowing of the clear bra...

attaching the 135 photo again - the file was too large the first time I tried.

I am planning to do the clear bra too. I was quoted for 800+ with front bumper, headlights, and side mirrors. Here is the link for the shop.

Bump.

Got the touch up paint. Can anyone confirm the paint code listed on the package?

Mine says 335, Estoril Blue Metallic

Thats funny.
Ive had A copule chips too in under 1 week. Maybe is the type of paint? Or maybe te paint is new and prone to chip easier?

I'm getting the wrap right now as well.

Sorry to resurrect this old thread but has anyone had any luck finding the B45 touch up paint lately? I called a few dealerships and no luck so far. Only the first Estoril blue (code 335) is available.
