vinyl car wrap

I'm looking to get my 2007 335xi wrapped in matte black. do any forum members have experience with this? does anyone know a shop that will do it for a reasonable price because some of the quotes I'm seeing are ridiculous. I would definitely be willing to have a forum member do it instead if they have experience.

Shops will charge you $2k and up.

Hit up Lorenzo at Eastside Motoring. Tell him David with the E46 M3 sent you. He'll give you a good price.

Im sure i will end up paying over 2k at a shop and im not sure whether it will be worth it. Do you know anyone of the forum that has done it themselves and would be willing to help me in a diy?

That's actually not a terrible idea... Probably something worth knowing how to do.

I don't have a garage but I'm sure one could be found. I'm sure that we could do the simpler portions and then for things like the door jambs I could go to a shop. also wahoo are you looking to get yours wrapped? maybe we could find a few others and get a small discount.

I think it might be a little too hard to attempt without tools and a garage spot.
