Thumbs up 335is Roof - Gloss Black Vinyl Wrapped

I just had the roof of my 2012 335is gloss black vinyl wrapped by Tagi (De) Signs, using Oracal 970RA gloss black vinyl. Taylor did a great job and I recommend him if you are in the Boston, MA area. Here are the pictures!

It was used to provide heat and allow the vinyl to conform. Quicker and easier to handle than a heat gun

I really like the way that your car looks and I am seriously considering trying the same thing on my car.

I provided the vinyl to Taylor and paid for his labor. The cost I quoted earlier was my cost for vinyl and labor.

Pricing will depend on whether there is sunroof, antenna, wrap etc. I'd recommend contacting your vinyl wrapper for a quote specific to your vehicle.

$250 just for labor? WTF? This is an hour long job, tops.

This was his first E92 roof wrap and he took his time to make sure it was done correctly, and done well (it took more than an hour). If you can do the roof, side trim and antenna in less than hour, then
