Hi picus

Please could you take some pics of the area where clear bra'd. I just want to see the result before I will have mine done. I've heard that the line is more visible on darker colour paint like our S Graphites. Thanks

Hey, what camera have you got? True, your pics of the grey poplar have the great resemblance to the real thing!

The line is actually *less* noticeable on darker colors, however what *is* more noticeable is the increase in orange peel from the bra. So lighter cars have more "line" and darker cars have more paint distortion, here are some pics. You can not see it from the front at all, but from behind you can.

And from behind:

Thanks picus.

I got some ideas of it now, it's not bad at all. I wonder if you have your bumper and lights bra'd as well? Do you think it's worth doing it?

Yep, the entire front end is wrapped.

I paid $700, so ya I think it's worth it. It's really a choice between the lesser of two evils. I hate stone chips, so the bra made sense to me. Some guys don't mind stone chips and don't like the bra... Personally I think the bra, while not the best looking thing ever, is only unsightly from a couple inches away - and even then it isn't too bad. If this were an older car with harder paint I'd have not done it, but these cars have soft paint and I can only imagine how sandblasted the front end will be in a year without a bra.

Sweet ride Jay 328, thinking of the same color combo for when i order my 328xi coupe in march. I was wondering what exhaust tips do you have and if it's not so much trouble, part number please... thanks
