Satin blue wrapped E90

Now I'm not sure if doing this is right but after all it is on the web for everyone to view and has been on for ages.

Anyway, I think this looks great and with a set of bigger wheels and some fix on those reversing lights it would look even better.

Looks quite good actually, better than I would of thought. Although I do love the Frozen Edition cars so slightly biased.

Does the new Frozen Edition basically mean it's got satin or whatever paintwork then? I've heard/read of them but wasn't too sure.

Good spot!

It's similar to Estoril Blue in colour and been my favorite colour since it first appeared on the E36 M3....

I seriously want mine done. I think I might even give them a call!!

I love the colour but would only get it for a more aggressive looking car. Stunning though!

Looks bad ass. I wonder if I can get a Monte Carlo Blue wrap? How much is that anyways? I really dig the F10 M5 color and would like it on my E90.

looks fantastic - this e93 looks great as well ... http://www.pwpro.co.uk/cars/?portfolio=bmw-e93-335i-2

I'd love to wrap my e93 in estoril blue - have to do some research to see if there is anywhere in Northern Ireland to get it done...

Oh that's the 3M blue. I have used that. Great colour and the vinyl it's self is great to use

I have just started up my wrapping company. It's called prestige vehicle wrapping

looks ok but i dont like the dull finishes, looks like a primer coat.
I would prefer a gloss finish like paint myself.
How long will it be before those awkward corners start to lift, do they fold it under door rubbers and behind body work seems, like between front wing and front door, how do they bond it behind the wing?
how long will it last before you have to remove it ?

You obviously dont know a lot about decent wrapping companies, the work they do is amazing.

Any member discounts?
Also would it be cheaper if I didn't wrap my E92s roof?

Genuine question.............I also don't know a lot about wrapping....

How easy is it to damage?
Does it fade over time?
What If you catch a corner on the door or else where, does water get in, then does it lift?
Liking the idea and sure there are good fitters but at 1500-upwards its more of a permanent thing??? so there is going to be ware & tear.
A shiny option would be worth a look also.
