Here's a picture that was taken yesterday (hence my costume). Notice the reflection on the hood. The paint still has lots of reflectivity to it. Thought this might help, please try not to laugh ;-)
I just bought a silver 98 750iL that came from Texas (one of the harshest climates for paint). The car was garaged at night, but sat in the sun during the day. Looks like the paint could use some wax, but I see no problems at all on the roof, trunk lid, or hood. Just my experience so far, your mileage may vary.
I'm considering buying a Silver 98 740I. I'm concerned about paint oxidation problems with it being Silver. Does anyone know about any problems reported or can I get responses from owners of Silver cars what experiences they've had.
