Satin White Wrap E93

I always wanted a white car but when I received almost 9k off the black one, I found it too good to pass up. So I purchased it, with every intention to one day paint or wrap it white. I looked at a lot of white options, Satin Pearl White was the one I wanted to get, but after speaking to a lot of owners of the Satin White Pearl and seeing it in person, and hearing them complain about a yellowish tint to the wrap (3M and Avery) I decided to just go with Satin White. Now I know it won't have as much of that color changing effect, but I am very happy with the look

I am not a very good photographer but I am getting better so please excuse any over saturation issues or clarity issues or too much vibrance, colors not being correct etc etc lol. I am learning.

For the "now" shots it was raining and the car was dirty but I tried to do the best I could. I will try and take better ones as the weather gets better. And obviously actually clean the car haha

Here is how my car used to look:






Here is how the car looks now:

















This is the only picture I didn't edit. This is obviously on a cloudy day. The trunk is a Vorsteiner VRS Aero trunk with 1x1 Carbon Fiber weave, which I left exposed for the spoiler look, it's my own design, I saw people doing the blend look and everyone did it, so I wanted to do something different and it lines up with the lights lines.

Mac, it is beautiful and the wrap is obviously really well done! It is unique too, but as I predicted, I liked the black better. I'm happy for you though that it's now how you wanted it.

Not sure why, but I prefer the black. Maybe because i'm not a fan of matte paint

To each their own. I like it myself, oh its actually Satin, not matte, there is a very visual distinction between the two that you only really get to appreciate in person.

Thanks!

Wow, that's a very good looking car. Much better than black, all the little detail of the car pops out.

The murdered look was better IMO.

But we always need to keep things fresh! Enjoy the "new" car!

It's still a gorgeous machine. Just not quite as "sinister" I'd say.
