It's Hexis which is French. It's the same quality as 3M, just a little cheaper and has a lot more colors. They were the only one with the color I wanted. It's going to be $4-500 for enough to wrap the car depending on brand. Hexis was $400, 3M would be $500. No residue when they peeled the vinyl off. A few tiny spots, but very minimal.

That looks AWESOME!!!! Didn't know vinyl wrapping looked like that. Now I can change my color anytime I want! lol. Or at least when I have the time.

www.autovinylsolutions.com For some reason their links for Hexis don't work right now. So if that's what you're looking for, maybe give them a call? They had the cheapest price on Hexis and I think they're the primary US distributor. I know that when I ordered, Hexis drop shipped some of the orders for them.

I might as well update this with how I spent another couple of Fridays. So the AC went out and I discovered the condenser had to be replaced.

Took the front end off because I needed to touch up the front bumper and install a camera.


Had the bumper inside my loft since I don't have an actual garage (just a deck).


Bumper touched up and ready to reinstall. Note there is a camera now.


All back together






Shot of the rear w/ the CF vinyl "diffusor". I'll get a new bumper at some point, but didn't want to spend the money if I wasn't sure I'd like the look so I tried this first.

I actually really dig that color... Wouldn't think about doing it in that color, but seeing it, awesome.

Yeah, I've always wanted a Laguna Seca Blue car... THough now I'm screwed with Coral leather... Anyway it's a very cool idea, what a great way to alter the car for just a little while whatever color ya want.

Well done.

Thanks. The color is extreme and takes a little getting used to. It looks like a cartoon sometimes but I like it. Does attract a little too much attention from cops though.

Yeah Liza did the original wrap because I needed to surprise my wife so I couldn't work on it.

I like the headlights, they're done by OSS. The black goes with the wheels. And the rings are very bright.

Ha, small world. I was getting my tint done and saw your wife's 335 then. Would you mind pm-ing me her number and the price she quoted you? I am looking to do mine as well... too many swirls in Jet Black!
