Thank you. I really don't know what to charge but I know I would beat nearly every vinyl wrapping company prices. I would just want a good reputation

I would like to thank you all very much for the lovely comments, it means a lot to me

I will upload some close up pictures of the vinyl on the car. It looks better in person then the pictures.

The wrap also has Metallic flakes I will upload close up pictures of that so you guys can see.

When I wrapped my car I took the bumpers off and side skirts. Basically I strip the car so I could wrap the car perfect and I know most companies don't do that.

But I did all this because I know I have done it the right way

Thanks to every one
Ash

I've never been into wrapping. I prefer the finish of shiny paint.

Looking at the pictures on my phone, why are some bits glossy?

There seems like possible finger marks on the wing and then parts of the door look shinier.

Do marks come off ok?

Is there a couple of shades of colour difference between panels? At various angles the doors look different.

Is that my phone, or does how much you heat and shrink affect the shade of the wrap?

That looks awsome! What is the colour called?

Does it cause issues for cleaning? I get the feeling if you took it to the 'hand car wash' down the road and let the guy loose with his pressure washer it would end in tears very quickly.

Yeah that's what my dad said he doesn't like much likes glossy more. But he also said its your car lol. Am not calling you old or any thing he just said the same thing.

The vinyl it's self has got different shades in dark and uh the light. I took the pictures from angels like that so you guys can see the different shades.

Other then car being dirty a little I haven't clean it as your meant to leave in the sun for a week or so so you might see dirt marks.

That's great thing about the vinyl it don't shirk. I know other vinyl I have used soon as you put heat on it burns the colour away not this one

Matte grey.

That's what am scared too do but the vinyl is strong. Am going to leave the car for a week in the sun then go for a wash see what happens

cheers mate, yeah it does, that's what most of my mates have said.

I paid 100 and 110 and it came from Germany special order.
I got it really cheap and on trade as I know the parts manager at bmw

normal price is 140 I think not sure mate.

am looking to get a f31 330d m sport very soon so I might leave the wheels

but I wouldn't mind changing the wheels
