I think this is the 1st flat black 335 in the world? Somebody correct me if I'm wrong!

I would like to give a VERY special thanks to Vinyl Styles. The entire car is a matte black vinyl wrap. It's an 8-10yr. vinyl that is washed/taken care of by using a mixture of water & baby shampoo & a micro fiber because there is no ammonia in baby shampoo.

They are located in the Bay area & are amazing! These guys are a pleasure to deal with & I would recommend them to anybody looking to to do any amount of vinyl work on their car!

If you use him for ANY vinyl wrapping, I guarantee happiness. The work is superb & he won't let you leave until your car is perfect..This past weekend I went to MFest, my car was put up next to some of the most beautiful M cars around & EVERYBODY gathered around my car no matter where it was..Nobody believed it was a wrap, they all thought it was painted.


Cost: $3,500. I know this seems steep to many ppl but think about it like this:

-It's cheaper than a paint job
-It doesn't depreciate the value of the car (as a paint job would)
-It protects your paint
-Your paint is just as good as the day the vinyl went on.
-A clear bra for the front end can easily run $1,000
