(Side note : gave the rear lights a slight tint along with the centre brake line AND the rear diffuser wrapped in gloss black)

Less talking from me .. Have some pics !

Hey Mr. Blue,

This is my first time here, since I will soon be picking up my baby M from BMW. Thinking about wraping it as well... in some other colour tho, since she is black. Maybe doing some carbon decals only, like side mirrors, roof, rear spoiler and difuser.

Anyway, I would be thankful if You would PM me. thanks

7 is the lucky number, so no doubts ur a lucky man... Btw,

Cheers,

Laki

wow, thats pretty expansive! (how much did the wrap material itself cost?)

i thought that here in austria its expansive with 1.8k (wrap mat. around 800-1000)

if i drive 100km to slovakia or hungary it would basically only cost me 2/3 due to way lower labour costs!!!

nevertheless your wrap looks amazing!

Thats the total cost of material and labour .. Seen as this wrap is a normal color and not a matt or frozen finish because those are even more expensive !

never the less thanks on that.

Does anyone know of a good wrapping company in the UK close to Buckinghamshire? I've found a few on google (within 140 miles) of which, some have good pics on their portfolios. However I'd like to hear the communities views and make sure I find a truly reputable place that will wrap into every possible gap, including the fuel filler cap.

I'm still deciding what colour to do mine....
When the car was white I had the wheels sprayed Anodized to match the Carbon parts.
Then the car was in an accident, took the opportunity of doing a colour change because the car was stripped right down to the shell, did it in Monte Carlo Blue.
Deciding either gunmetal grey like on the F20 M135i, or the 2 tone on the F30. Seen both colours on a Estoril blue F20/F30

Yeah with Blue its hard to decide .. A full black rim with blue painted calipers might make it look nice IMO.. but im not in any rush as for this issue..

No idea. But, as we know, painting involves quite some surgery - only very few did it so far.

Remember the AW 1M that was painted Dakar Yellow:

He must have wrapped it.

To paint it, it's a lot of stripping and work.... I did the colour change because the car was stripped down to the shell to get repaired, so decided to do it while I had the opportunity
