Opinions Needed: Matte Black

Hey guys,
328i Finally delivered. I originally didn't like the color but is slowly growing on me and I like it more and more as time progresses. Question is, would you Vinyl Wrap your car?

Picture related. Just how my car looks.

I would be I fear I would get sick of it pretty quickly because I love that gloss after a good wash and wax

I painted my previous bimmer matte black and it was a nightmare. I used to detail cars when I was younger, but I still hated it. Waters spots and bird crap would ruin a paint job. I would only wrap it if your car was fully modded with a bitchen body kit, otherwise your gonna look like a fool. I see kids driving around with their BMW's matted out and say to myself " what the fu** was I thinking. Not a big fan of the color you have, but some black or gun metal rims would make it look alot better and a drop of course. Black your windows out, grill, etc. Some linea corse LC818 would do the trick 8.5 / 10.0. These are just the opinions of weddo from S.D!

Why ruin such a classy looking vehicle? The color is elegant, and goes well with the brightwork.

Unless you want to black out your trim, you are better off saving your money and enjoying your ride...for now...maybe get a lip for later to make it more aggressive, but keep the grilles and wheels the same color.

It really looks sharp to me.

I agree with the posts above. Dont ruin the elegance of your car with matte black. Sometimes not even the cars with heavy mods pull off the look.

I am sure you have seen forum member Hooy's ride. Same color as yours and looks beautiful. If you have'nt, heres the link to his photos.

Aero lip, coilover's, decent rims, and a m3 spoiler are very nice mods that will make you appreciate your color more.

If you still wish to wrap your car, I suggest you take a look at a local shop called Wrap Werks Miami. They do a great jobs at any thing you need vinyl wrapped.

BTW congrats on your new car

Agreed with above and especially on a bone stock model. When it's done it can look amazing but get it wrong and it can look wacked. I'd only consider it if I was a step or two shy of a track-day car
