i really like the color of the wrap and the CF interior trim-everything came out soooo nice and clean!

and IMO i think you should keep your roof gloss black

Im to the point where im just going to rip off the cap and paint it black lol.

Mirrors can be the hardest part. It just takes some patience and heat.

Looks very sharp! I'm curious, how did you select this line? Where did you get it?

I had seen this color on a few cars at SEMA last year. I knew I would be wrapping something in this color. I was growing tired of matte black. Every day I look at it and I am happy with the choice.

Where are you located? I am really thinking about doing a wrap on my e92. I wouldn't mind running some ideas by you and even get some pointers.

I have wrapped road race bikes but never done a car

Here is a little video for those considering doing this themselves. Please note that this is a "Quick" wrap at 13 hours

Yes I do. Anybody want to trade some Black Lines for some wrapping?

I have a few more pressing upgrades in progress.
I just bought this staggered set of BBS CH 19's, the rubber should be on them by Friday.
Been debating waiting till I install the H&R Sports before putting the wheels on.

long time lurker, first time poster. the wrap looks awesome! do you have some pictures of the corners of the trim? everytime i see someone post a wrap on the trim like that it looks great til you get to the corners//sections right around the vents. i gather with your extensive wrap experience that you don't have those issues - but it'd be nice to see. cheers!

Welcome Lurker. I'll try to get a couple pictures uploaded before you swing by to look at mine next week. There are a few different methods for doing corners so that the look good. Bad trim work and corners can ruin the entire job.

As for the springs, they just arrived today H&R Sports. I was going to install them myself, but Bimmerhaus is going to install them for me.
