1M with white carbon weave look wrap

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
People keep experimenting: a Belgian 1M got a combo of a white carbon weave look wrap for the body + black carbon weave look wrap for the roof. M3 GTS wheels, black kidneys, CF side mirrors and a CF trunk spoiler lip were apparently thrown in to top it off. Peculiar. The pictures don't allow to guess what original color is hiding under the wrap (except maybe the first picture: AW inside the crease/blinker where the wrap seems to have loosened for a fraction ?).

Looks like the texture will be a PITA to keep clean....however, to each his or her own, I saw a Ferarri wrapped in white fake CF this Summer, I didn't understand that either??

Sorry but why temporarily ruin a perfect 1M? What are you going to do next? How about creating an inflatable "bubble" wrap to put on a regular 1 series to make it look like a 1M.

The owner seems to have walked an extra mile to make his 1M more unique.

To avoid any misunderstanding, I am not related to that 1M. Mine is stock VO and kept that way. The pictures featured on Autogespot this weekend and that's where I got them (http://www.autogespot.com/bmw-1-seri...e-1/2012/12/15).

My only wrap project for the forthcoming days is wrapping Christmas presents.

More pictures of a 1M with a white carbon weave look wrap (spotted recently).

Likely the same 1M as the one in the first post pictures (CF spoiler, CF mirror caps, CF wrap roof and black kidneys) but with different license plate and Breyton wheels (instead of M3 GTS wheels):
