Awesome .... you car looks really great.. Now you should put black rims on car and it would be better than perfect

And 1300 EUR is cheap, I thought this would cost at least 5000 EUR. Can you gave me contact who did paint you car ? Maybe I will do the same and Germany isn't far away from me...

What?!? Cheap? You can paint your car for that much coin.

I think its a cool idea if you get tired of the color of your car, but $2k+ for vinyl is crazy.

--if you change your car's color, don't you have to report it to the DMV?

--this thread gets my vote for "Thread of the Year"

very cool project, but like Suareezay said, the vinyl can't compare to the depth or reflectivness of a proper paint job.

how about the door jams? are they vinyled as well?

That's insane. I don't think I'd want to do it, but it's very cool still. I assume as others have said that it's never going to be as perfect as paint, but for someone who doesn't care that much, it's a good idea. Imagine just changing the color of your car every few years.

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.
I dont understand, you paid good money do get the car in white, Isn't it that white and black are standard non-chargeable option color.

but I like the process, its very cool and thks for sharing... maybe thats a better option of a very expensive clear bra

I would LOVE to get my car done in a matte dark grey color to match my wheel's finish!! Oh man. . . . that would be killer. And I think this is NUTS! But I'd have to see it in person. And unless all the pieces are precision laser cut to fit, then it seems like the corners and edges would be off. . . since they'd be cutting them with knives.
