    I got this at home while I was out on the road and I was pleasantly surprised. It is very high quality. I'm sure many will think it too expensive, but that does not bother me. This is not just 3M carbon di-noc vinyl put on a leather smart cover, but real CF laminate that looks and feels very diff than other products. It has an extreme gloss like glass. Minor disadvantages as it weighs a bit and makes the ipad a bit thicker, but still thinner than a portenzo type case.

    That's an awesome cover, just not for $89.99.

    That is one fine looking cover.

    does it have a BMW emblem on it?

    Eh... either the pictures are not great, or they didnt produce a product that is consistent with their concept art. I had expected a very finished product... this one looks rough from the pictures you provided and their website.

    Costs aside (and there isnt much of a cost difference), I think I like my Apple black leather smart cover with the ni-loc skins better. But maybe it is something that I would need to see in person.

    It really is done well, I don't see any dent in real life and each piece is slighly bevels and sanded smooth - pics are with my iphone cam and could not get the right lighting on the fly......the CF now has depth like a luxury car dash...I like it...

    my concern is longevity, I am doing BMW product training every day so it's pulled in and out of my waterfield and shuffled from city to city and set up again...so I'll let you know...
