335i Coupe M Sport Package in Germany undergoing color conversion by foil / tape

Yes that is right. Finally the time has come in Europe that driving a white car can be beautiful. It started already 1 year ago that you were able to see more white cars on German streets, especially premium cars like Porsche GT3, Porsche and BMW's. Mercedes is catching up. With the new world color of the C-Class in white its only a matter of time.

As I ordered the car in black I thought that foiling it with 3M shiny white tape would not also look really sexy, but will also protect my paint at least for 3-4 years.

If I would ever get bored of the color I can still go for grey etc...

I am thinking of buying the M6 replica wheels as I guess they are most beautiful wheels you can buy for a BMW. The curret wheels which comes with the M Sport Package will be used for winter tyres.

Please find below the process of my car going through.

Wow, lets see the finished car. More pictures of the process please!

Man oh man, that is the craziest thing I have seen someone do to a 3-series so far. What happened to the clear tape? Just felt like using the white one though.

The timme needed for the retrofitting takes about 2 days. The paint shoulb in very good conidtion as each small scratches could be seen through the tape.

The taping foling is very well know in Germany with Taxi and in racing sports.

Painting the car completey new is only at a fraction of the cost.

I was thinking of keep the roof in black. I think this makes the car look more sporty and aggressive! What do you suggest?

So, wait a minute, what's going on? What's different besides the fact that it's being repainted?

Does that "foil" breathe? If not, your paint will be screwed when you remove it.

The tape is easy to remove from the original paint. You will have a guarantee of 3-4 years. After that time it is higly recommended to remove the tape.

Finally some pictures of the end product
