I was going to agree, but the more I look at it the more I like the matte with the matte CF work.

I'm sorry to say this and I know some people are probably going to hate me for it, but I don't really like it. It's almost like they threw a bunch of mods at the car just because, but the project as a whole doesn't flow. Call me biased, but I prefer the stock look of my ride.

Epic.

I was convinced I would make no mods to my 1M. This one has me thinking otherwise.

I was lucky enough to attend SEMA for a number of years. Miss it. Especially with all the 1M eye candy!

Also cp-e has really caught my eye spoke with them a while back but not recently, just ordered their charge pipe and hks bov to replace my stett with dual forge bovs, alrdy have my injen dual short ram, agency power midpipes on the car and have my active autowerke frontmount going on when i get my car back since most of you know its in the body shop but when its comes back ill have mostly everything and its go time!!!. i slipped but am about to bring a really sick 1m to the n54 commmunity, rb turbos anyone)

Paint, depending on color and the size of the car, weighs a bit over 20 lbs. White is a bit lighter than other colors (not kidding). The wrap weight will depend on the thickness, but the thin ones are generally in the low single digit lbs for the whole car.

If they skipped paint and primer on the carbon hood and trunk lid they might almost make up for the wrap on the rest of the car.

I'm not very impressed with the shut-lines on that carbon trunk lid. If that's the best they can do on the show car I fear for customer parts...

Yea, sick as in throw up sick! The stock car looks so good and done just right by the folks in Munich.

It reminds me of what happened to all the E30 M3's. Half got wrecked, a quarter got cut up into race cars, a few more got turned into "ricers" and that leaves very few, which is why they are valuable....

On second thought, you guys have at it. I would think it's cheaper to buy a Nissan Sentra and throw a big booster on it but to each their own. Every 1M that gets scabbed up this way only makes my true and beautiful stock 1M that much more valuable someday!

I wonder if the trunk was really shut all the way. Other pictures had it lifted up so maybe they didnt close it completely? At least I hope that's what happened.

Maybe, but in that case you'd think they'd have is closed at least once during the video. I do hope you're right though...

The 1M is a fun car, one should drive it, enjoy the driving pleasure to the fullest to trully appreciate the car.

Having it kept in the garage and not driving it hoping to keep it in showroom condition is not a true enthusiast, its more an investment that u look for return.

I drive all the cars I own even knowing it might depreciate its value if it's been driven hard.

Was Excited, Now Very Disappointed

The one thing to take from this is, never over sell and under deliver.

This was a terrible first impression. I was very excited to see this at SEMA and made a point to make sure it was one of the first cars I saw.

I do everything with quality and expect that from companies, especially those that stir up hype for months.

The gaps on this car were terrible and the wrap job was sub par which multiplied my disappointment.

The door panels looked good.

I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
