Is that not the effects of the elements on the rest of the paintwork?

I like that a lot.... looks mad!!!

Must get some looks going down the road.

How resilient is the wrap to stone chips etc?

My wife is so gonna divorce me when i tell her i want another E92 and wanna wrap it.

Looks very nice very nice indeed, but i am sure it removes the clear coat after removing, plus where is the fun of polishing/waxing on a nice warm sunday - metallic paint all the way for me

Why not just buy a car in the colour you want, why buy a black car if you wanted white or am I missing something ??

Yes I think you are.

Too live with a white car permantly for X amount of years will be tiresome.

TO add little flavour to your car and for a reasonable amount you can change the colour of your car to suit. It can be reversed rather quickly too.
