Vinyl Wrap

Have a very important question for you guys haha!

What color should I vinyl wrap my M3? Its carbon black, black interior, black grills and gunmetal wheels, plus a few exposed carbon fiber pieces like the front splitters and rear diffuser.

My first thought was Satin Pearl White....

What colors do you guys like?

I like the pearl white and the LSB - both are awesome. But my vote would go for Santorini Blue.

Are you wrapping it yourself?

The white will get dirty fast. It's not the easiest to clean. I've just been wrestling with the same question. I just sold my third E46 that I wrapped matte black. I'm over it after three cars the same color. I'm leaning towards matte blue metallic.

I am getting it done end of March. I first have to get a couple things done on the car before the vinyl goes on.

I'm going with the matte blue metallic. Did my hood today just to make sure I like the color. Slammed at work engineering graphics for other cars so mine will be completed over the next week.
