Thinking of Matte wrapping my car

I have a white on black E92 335i Coupe.. Thinking of getting it wrapped in Matte/Frozen Gray. Thoughts? I've always loved the frozen gray look.

I don't get the point of these kinds of posts....if you like it, then do it. If it's cosmetic mod, which this is, people are going to have all kinds of opinions. Just do what you like.

I.e. I think you should wrap it in matte royal purple. Might as well go chrome. (You probably think these are ugly, but you hopefully you get the point...)

So? Then be the first? what about a 335i is stopping you from doing it? If you like it, then do it. simple. do things to your car that you like, not what others will think. If you care what others think so much, then I recommend you get a matte pink car, with gloss pink rims....

Lol definitely gonna get flamed for anything matte nowadays... I think it would look sweet. Just be sure to know the extra work that goes into vinyl. Gotta keep it clean and maintained! Best of luck! Im sure you will like it!

I think the main point 1chanc3 is trying to make is that when it comes to cosmetic mods you should do what you think looks good instead of trying to make it what other people think looks good. At the end of the day you drive it, you pay for it, and most importantly you have to live with it. If matte gray is you're thing then thats what you should do, if "matte pink with gloss pink rims" is you're thing then do that. In my opinion, I think it would look good but your opinion is the only one that really matters.

If you got the dough, found a reputable shop to do it and have the time to maintain a vinyl wrapped ride, I'd say go for it!

Do it...I wrapped mine with matte black & then waxed it to give it a frozen black appearance. I'm so glad I did it & I'm sure you will too...
