Welcome back Rocket.

Have you considered the durability of the wrap?

I seem to recall that your 35D is possibly the quickest on the planet (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=402734)
and having such a quick car I'd be concerned that the forces imposed on the wrap might actually rip it off the car!



I'd discuss the above with:
