Gorgeous, I must say! Dark cars undoubtedly looks stunning when really cleaned up.

The roof of mine sometimes looks great too! But then a day or two later it isn't shiny any more, even without any rain.
The white bits, however, never seem to change much...

What coating is it ? I’m thinking of stripping mine back to the paint and applying the SiRamik graphene it’s had some really positive feedback at Detailing world - SiRamik Lustrous Plus Graphene Spray at £40 a bottle I recon it’s well worth a try and seems to get similar results to a professional ceramic but at home - the professional version of the graphene coating looks insane ! (Search land rover siramik coating)

EDIT - oh didn’t want to seem rude yours does look fantastic 🤣

Looks a million $.
If you dont mind me asking what colour are your wheels and do you have any more wheel focused images.
My car is also Dark Sapphire metallic and have often wondered what (I presume they are Anthracite ??) that colour wheel would look like.

I believe this is the stuff they used on it as this is what they advertise on their website.

I'm looking at getting a ceramic top up spray for every other wash so might give that SiRamik stuff a try as it looks really good. I'll have a read up on it but looks exactly like what I'll be needing.

It's just a standard BMW anthracite colour I think, It was just a cheap colour change as I couldn't stand them the previous colour. I'm desperately on the lookout for a set of 20" propellers that don't cost the earth or a nice set of aftermarket wheels but struggling to find much for less than 2k once decent tyres are factored in. I've not got any pics of just the wheels but I will try and get some over the weekend after work.

From where do you have that blacked out badge?
It was just a generic black one from ebay & I painted the orange when doing the brakes. I have since gotten a replacement and re painted it gloss black and oranage as the black on this one hasn't aged well. I've just not got round to fitting it yet

20" Venoms would look well on yours

A long over due bit of TLC for the car, polish & ceramic coating. Typical Scottish weather meant it rained about 30min after picking her up ruining the chance of some nice pics somewhere a bit more scenic.

Very pretty, those. Almost identical to the black 5031s that many of us have. Of course, an inch larger.
I think I'd struggle to tell them apart unless side by side. Aren't they usually on XFs?

They are a bit too similar to what i'v already got fitted. I'm keeping my eye out for a set of propellers or something similar to these Gloss Black x4 20" SVR 2022 Style Alloys 5x108 Evoque Velar Discovery Sport | eBay
Propellers seem to go for silly money lately so couldn't justify the cost of them +£800 for 4x tyres, wouldn't get much change from £2k
Alternatively I'll end up buying after market alloys which I could get a decent set and tyres for a tad under £2k. I just can't decide what one's I'd go for.

Yes, mine came off an XF.
