Hmm I'm not sure I like it or not. I think its something I would have to see in person before doing it.

With the way the sun is here in FL I'm sure it would look like crap on my car in a year or so.

How hard was it to apply?

With the wheels and roof all black, I think the mirrors should be black as well. They somehow don't look right in white. We need better pics and a clean car, though.

Looks promising, definitely need some better pics.

This is one of the few setups that the BMW "Performance Stripes" might actually go well on.

Matte black cars would swirl and chip just like any other paint, but this is a vinyl decal. It will more likely rip from a rock than swirl or chip I believe.

Of course you can replace it anytime, or peel off to reveal nicely protected AW.....

Looks great! I want to do the same to mine, but probably in a semi gloss but I would want to retain the roof rack brackets. I'm afraid it will start peeling if it's cut around the bracket.

Agree. Love to see more outdoor pics. Garage pics do not give a good feel for the car.
