Took him a week to get my car done, and i have to say he did an amazing job. He was extremely detailed and just honestly a very genuine person. His pricing is very fair, and my car came out awesome. He can do and get any color from Hexis or 3M. I had went to him with the idea of a Matte Gray Wrap, but his connections found me an actual BMW Frozen Blue Palette which matched up perfectly with the Hexis Pitch Blue Matte.

So... Here is a picture of the ALMOST final work (missing the rear bumper. BMW's fault).

Was curious as to why people wrap the entire car. Is it just to change the color without painting it, or is it so that you can change back if you want? I'm curious because I've never heard of it before outside of wrapping a car for advertising.
Yes. It's cheaper than painting and is reversible. It seems as if it is getting more popular lately. If you search for wrapped cars on the forum you will find dozens of individuals whom have done it, some professionally some did it themselves. Nice way to change the look of the car.
