i used this to figure out how to take the pieces off: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1024270

and some youtube videos to verify how to take off the pieces

bought this CF wrap: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0058DIDTY/...332200_TE_item

and just took my time wrapping the pieces. just go slow and peel off if there are bubbles. i bought some cheap $5 carbon fiber wrap and practices with various stuff around the house (iphone/ computer case/ curved objects) and then when i was ready, i had to guts to just do the whole process myself!

Looks excellent! Love that you took it a step further and added that touch of red.

Ha, a twin of my car with the same color combo. I would suggest a mild drop with a good coilover and black out the window trims since yours don't have the shadow line. Also, change the steering wheels to either msport or m3 and add the paddle shifters.
