Not bad at all, it's gonna be on a sunny day with a Corona in hand!

thanks!
total: 5-6hours, it's not shooting the car that takes long, it's the prep(wash, dry, tape), once you start shooting you only stop 10-15min between each coat, it took about 5 coat I think for my car!

I'm very much into modern/contemporary designs and decor and you dont find houses like that where I live. If you dont mind me asking, what program did you use to draw the house? I'm love to do the same thing similar to this myself for my next house (hopefully within the next year or so!).

Thanks!

I did'nt use any program, I did all the plans on paper sheets then I brought my drawings to an architect so he could do my plans according to the code! It was a long process to draw exacly what me AND my girfriend wanted but it's the best thing we could've done. We knew exactly what we wanted and no plans were close to it so I starded from scratch and here's the result, a house that we love everything about!!

I gotta say I'm pretty proud of myself , specially since I never thought of drawing my house until I actually search for plans and found nothing we liked!

I'm trying to figure out how that looks better.

What is plastidip? Is it different than wrapping?

Whatever it is I don't like it. Unless it comes in gloss and more life-like colors. This looks like an army jeep color.

Nice color but if you can afford an M3 then why abuse it through winter elements instead of buying a beater ?

Because then you have to drive some POS all winter when you wish you were in your M3?

Honestly, I'm storing my M3 this winter and I'll be daily-driving my 2010 TDI Golf until spring. But my current plan (which changes weekly) is to sell the Golf in the spring and then get winter wheels/tires for the BMW next winter. I like driving the M3, so why not drive it any time I can?

I can afford an M3 and I can also afford to drive it all year long!

I had two A4s, one TT225 and a 09 STI before my M and honesly the M3 is the car I have the most fun with, no matter the season. I pretty sure you don't have half the fun I have with your car, I did'nt buy it to look at it!
