Great choice in color OP... you'll see how much more attention you'll get now (if you haven't already started)... I can't keep people off my car out here... it almost gets annoying at times cuz everyone wants to touch it and leave finger prints

P.S. bet you almost cried wrapping the bumpers. Most frustrating part of the process! (considering you did this on your own)

P.P.S.... how much did you spend? if you DIY... should have been under a grand...
LOL yes I meant yours. BTW How hard is the front bumper to do?

On a scale of 1 to becoming a certified astronaut.... i'd say definitely landing on the moon, give or take...

Each bumper took about 4-5 hours... 2 people working on it about 75% of the time... Areas of the front bumper's bottom grill/air duct holes had to be patched because the vinyl gave up around the corners and going towards the inside. I spent about an hour and a half just cleaning up the work in these areas after we had the main wrap applied. It was def. challenging. Thought we'd be giving up a few times, especially the back bumper. But with patience you'll get through it...

Update: bad photo of my car so far (I didn't purposefully take it like this. The sun was setting). Car still not done yet. Some stuff on backorder and wife is getting angry.

That looks so good! The only wrap I'd even consider doing, unless they had Matte Techno Violet

I think if I ever did go through with it (not any time soon), I'd take off the bumpers and let someone else take care of it.

What do you have left to do?

What do you have left to do?
Cosmetics: Diffuser, BMW Performance CF Spoiler and CF Mirror Caps, lowering springs/coilovers (trying to see how much of a drop I want and if coilovers would be a better route), and Lux AE becase my car is too Superman-esque at the moment with the yellow rings and red tails.

Performance: If I can convince my wife that I "need" a supercharger, an ESS-625/Akra full. We just bought a new suv and thinking about buying a house so I don't think she'll budge, but that won't stop me from begging...I mean convincing.
