Is it difficult to keep this color looking clean? I really like the look of it but it would be my first darker color paint.

That was my biggest concern as well.

My work place is in a pretty dusty area, and that was a huge factor in me deciding to go with Bluestone. When clean though, MB is an epic colour.

I've had a few dark colour including black but last car before this was a 330d msport touring in white. I've gone back to this blue because it is so rich and yes difficult to keep clean but not impossible.

Do a ceramic coating. Then no worries.

I was quoted around $1800 for paint corrections and then crystal serum ultra ceramic coating, is this a good price and product?

Don't know. Sounds steep to me. Getting all the equipment myself cost less than £500 and took me 1-2 days to do. I think places in uk will charge about that much to do 1 Car.

I used gtechniq c1 and exo. I polished using scholl s20. Windows done with angelwax h2go.

I haven't washed my car for 2 months and after a shower last night beading was awesome...

I bought a mid level polisher back when the Amazon prime days were happening. I'm going to take a look at it when I get it home to see how much correction is needed and if I want to handle it myself.

I know it's not the best beading out there but after a couple of minutes at 60mph all that water runs off and leaves a pretty shiny car...

Bottom edges of wheel arches

I have med blue and noticed the front edges of the side skirt (behind front wheel) and low rear edge of bumper is prone to chipping and gravel rash? Will post up some pics if I get chance.

How do you like the standard LED headlights? The black kidney grill doesn't seem to be an option any longer, I may have opted for that as well.

Almost exactly like mine, except I have a fineline ridge wood trim. I agree with bimmer_335 - upgraded leather seats are fantastic.

Excellent color combination - congrats!
