Very nice! Is that a wrap or real paint job?

That looks fabulous, even though I personally think it's a bad thing to do.

I guess that is 'titanium' colored: really nice and as far as I can tell from these pics, it matches the titanium exhaust color well (besides the pipes having a dull surface). 'Non specific' makes it all the more exclusive, and as my wish for all of us: hopefully no need for touch-ups. Do you know if powder coating was involved, or just paint?

Not to sound repetitive, but this car does ask for more pics or even a proper photo shoot!

thanks for your great feedback! the color has been painted even with the original brand colors from bmw, so its excact the same color like when you order an m5/m6 with this color.

@ all: as soon the weather allows, there will be uploaded a lot more pictures!
