Guri's Matte White Vinyl Wrap JOURNEY e90 335i ended!!

First picture is my car with dipped matte white.

I had plastidipped my car about a month ago, but I decided to wrap my car instead.

I don't recommend plastidip cuz the texture is not smooth, takes forever peeling it off, leaves some residues on a paint.

My friend and my girlfriend helped me peeling plastidip off but it still took about 12+ hours (2 hrs yesterday 10 hrs today). I got blisters all over my fingers

So I ordered 5ft x 50ft 3m matte white vinyl and I am gonna start wrapping my car tomorrow. Here are some pics of my current car.

I am gonna upload pics after wrappin is done.(will take about 3-4 days)


Updated: Day 2 pics uploaded


Finally, this journey has ended. Took me 1 week
2-3 hrs a day.

going to take a nice pics tmr at day time.


lesson learned- Dont dip your car nor wrap your car.... enjoy your original paint.....

Thanks for the tips as far as not plasti dipping... Was looking for a place in Georgia who wrapped and couldn't find any... How much time should the wrapping take and any recommendations?

If you do it at the shop, average is $2500-3000 or more.
I am doing this with my friend. 5ft x 50ft 3m vinyl wrap is $450-490. You might need more incase of mistakes. I'm thinking 3-4 days to finish wrapping.

vinyl- $450-490
heat gun- $15-20
squeegee- $>5
etc.

Looks good so far! The only part that really gives me worry is the front bumper, everything else looks pretty straightforward. If you could post some detailed pics of bumpers being done that would be awesome!

One side of my V5.0 LUX is out so my car has stock light bulbs right now. I sent them to LUX Angel eyes to get them repaired. I can't wait
