Looks beautiful! Any pictures of the car with doors open? I'm curious to see what it looks like around the doors with the wrap.

Was thinking of wrapping my car matte white... How hard is it to keep clean?

Thanks.

I have a pic or two somewhere but id have to find them. I will try to post them or pm you. I like the matte white but i guess the question might be would I do it again or do it with a wrap again? And I don't know that I can say yes to it. Its not horrible to clean, but I have dealt with some staining from fingers, tire spray, etc. 90% of it cleans off with care but 10% will not go away. So over time the wrap accumulates a lot more wear than a paint job... But that's also probably stating the obvious. It was good for what I wanted... And that was to change the color for a while. I think I have my next plans in the back of my head though, and it doesn't involve rewrapping it.

I kind of figured it would get dirty... Didn't think it would be this bad... Can you not clean it with denatured alcohol or whatever it's called? Yeah, if you can pm me the pics I'd love to see it.

Thanks.

I guess it just depends how picky you are and how dirty the roads you drive on are. Yes the alcohol helps and also brake cleaner for dire situations. I'm pretty picky, but most people tell me how much they love it. I do end up washing the car twice per week though, normally to avoid excessive stains.

One last question bud, when the rear trunk was wrapped, was it done around the spoiler? I'm asking because it was recommended to remove pretty much everything when wrapping... It doesn't make sense to remove the spoiler though...

Everything was removed or installed after the wrap. Trust me you don't want it any other way or people will be talking about your car as "one of those wraps". You want to minimize seams... Thankfully there are only 12 panels on the e92 and the bumpers are the most difficult. You will want to use 12 panels of vinyl and no more, no less...

But isn't that spoiler glued? How can you glue it to the vinyl? That just doesn't seem like it would hold well...

The vinyl is very sturdy. I know it doesn't seem right but trust me. and if you don't trust me at least trust whoever does your wrap.
