Some More Sora Blue Dipped E90 335i

Still loving this color it has really grown on me. I added some headlight and foglight tints to really make the blue on the front end pop. I am thinking of blacking out the fins in the front, what do you guys think? And loving the concave of the AG M510s!

I love it, looks extremely clean! It also helps that blue is my favorite color!

What was your original color? Black? Also by saying dipped, I assume you're referring to Plasti-Dip? If so, this is definitely one of the best examples I've seen.

Did you have this done professionally or tried your hand in your garage? Haha

Also, if you don't mind me asking, how much--more or less would something like this cost?

I know wraps are generally in the $2.5k area, but what about this kind of procedure? Also how long is this expected to last?

Great color! And I do think it would look better with the fins blacked out.

I had it done in LA actually! The car was originally black so keeping the mirror housing and roof black worked perfectly. If you go to the same guy as I did you would be saving over 1k. Shoot me a PM and I can put you in touch with him.

car looks great! would love to see it with an msport bumper though. I like the fitment on your wheels too, straight up with no camber. Have you thought about some spacers? still havent taken the dip off the sidemarker?

Agreed. Car and color looks great but an msport bumper would really set it off.

Looks so clean!

If the guy who dipped your car did many layers (i'm sure he did) you should be able to just peal the side marker off without it messing up the paint on the actual car
