I was thinking the same that it was pretty quick from the order to completion. Went to the dealer yesterday to sign the paperwork.
Finally starting to sink in that it is mine.

Went ahead with their platinum BMW coverage to avoid any headaches for 6 years/100,000 miles.

Recommend finding a place in Spartanburg/Greenville to clear bra the sides and front before you start on your long journey home.

How long would it take them to install it?

Depends on how much coverage you want, it can take from 3 to 6 hours. Also depends on how many people work on your car simultaneously. If there is just one guy, then it can be up to 6 hours for front and sides.

When I did PCD, I was reviewing installers and making appointments 2 weeks before.

You have seen the threads about damage the paint takes especially on X5/X6 M without clear bra. It gets worse when it starts to rain on your return drive.

You will be done by 2 pm on the day of PCD.

The link below is for installer in Greenville who does both Xpel and 3M Ventureshield. I have used both products.

This is golden advise. Do not return before doing this or be prepared to look at a sand blasted brand new car as you park in your garage.

If you want to clear it when you get home you can use blue painters tape. Use real 3M though or it may stick. With your color blue it would blend in well. Really only need to do the rockers and the rear wheel lip up to the door gap.
