E90 LCI Msport Satin Pearl White Wrap Pics

I know some of you guys were really excited to see some pics out of the garage and with a camera so here goes. Still waiting on the new cf splitters to come and then after a roll racing event i'm attending this weekend i'm going to put the underside splitter on. Also going to send headlights back out to redone and get the blueye changed to redeye since blue is barely visible and possibly do the color changing rings.

Haha I think you and a few others did too but some prefer this. For me I think they both have their benefits but i'm happy. I was ready for a bit of a change and the wheels weren't working with the SG. I owe the wheel company, Avant Garde, a video then after that's done I might sell the wheels and try to get a set of the new MORR flowformed wheels. If I think those work well with SG maybe i'll go back towards the end of summer

i think the color of the wheels blends with the satin pearl too much


i kid! looks great! you did a great job on your own as a DIY. Hopefully no more snow storms for us in the east coast so you can enjoy the new color. Looking forward to pics with the additions you are looking to do.

Hahaha at first I was like this: . Lol anyways thanks as always! The DIY definitely didn't go as smooth as planned but overall i'm happy. I think if I do another the next time it will go much more smooth. The storm today sucked I had to drive around and these summer tires do not like when it snows...

At first in your thread I didn't like the black door handles.....but now that it is complete I think they look sick.

Well done. Bravo!!!

How much $$$ did you invest in this and how many hours would you estimate?

Looks fantastic!

WITHOUT QUESTION a ton better...for me anyway. The wheels pop soooooo much more now. Honestly, I feel like no matter what you do with the wheels they're going to pop because of this color. In fact, how about a dark bronze next?

Great work man. You've got a hell of a setup. I think the only thing I'd like to see is a 20% tint. Keep it up. Love the updates!

Looks killer! You now have that much needed contrast.

My two cents about the lights... I HATE those RGB versions. The beaded look on them really looks cheap to me (atleast on the E92's that have had it on the forum). But then again, I've noticed they aren't nearly as "deep" as the regular Raptor rings. So in your 3/4 shots from the front, the angels look a little odd given how deep they go into the headlight.

I'd only go for the RGB if they can make it as uniform as the lights you already have.

Invested in just the wrap or whole car? Just the wrap I got a great deal on the satin white so even with having to order more and doing the black I probably spent around $500 and a good amount of hours. Idk exactly how many but if I had to guess well over 24

Thanks man glad you like it. I really wish I went 20% in the first place especially since the police where I live don't care that much about laws like that

Hahaha did you see I finally got a diffuser? I know and that's what has kept me from getting them the whole time. The board hasn't been redesigned so they'll still look beaded which I know sucks but I feel like it might be worth it for this:

Haha unfortunately black wheels just aren't my thing. I tried it once during winter and hated them. Dark grey is the darkest I go for wheels

To answer blindside:

Rgb chips are huge. Disgracefully at the current level of tech, Rgb will always be very beaded. Images and real life are 2 different planets though, and cameras will never react the same. They either blow it out and all angels look like perfect lightbeams, Or they dim them and show every segmented led. Real life is somewhere in between. And your distance from the car matters.

But let me tell ya. Theres something amazing about seeing a BMW with Raptors set in red coming fast on your rearview mirror. Oooooffff :-)

I almost bought those wheels. After seeing them I'm glad i didn't, just not the right wheel for me. I went with the M310's, but they do look fantastic!! Love the color of the wrap. Looks great!

Good Job dude
