My new F20 had already orange peels and some hazy points, and he did a minor polishing.
That's true, if you'll compare bmw with other eu brands painted with same application technology and material base, it's still on top. BMW has very strict tollerances for gloss, structure, color, pigment effects, cloudiness in production.
But you can't compare to pneumatic application of solvent borne system.
