I get to see this work of art in person on Saturday but have you considered a clear matte finish on the tails? I think it could look great...

You have an e92 m and you dont track? Please correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that like having a smoking hott date and not butt raping her to the fullest extent?

Looks dirty though man good job. I have no opinion on the tails.

lmao! i hear you! but to be honest man... im really trying to conserve this car... It's not under warranty and its just something for me to take out and enjoy on the weekends. I've worked hard to get myself to owning an M3. Tracking takes a beating on these cars... Maybe later on down the line when its fully paid off and im at a different financial bracket then i'll consider it. But for now... i'm good!

And thank you! Glad you can appreciate it...

Appreciate it, I'm already looking into doing that to mine. So it then becomes a tribute haha. I might even have to steal that color cause that blue marvelous.

Lol I think somebody needs to go get laid

Hot car bro, I think you are personally responsible for a lot of good ideas and envy amongst guys looking to wrap/paint

Indeed! some M owners have money to burn and dont really care but i like to conserve the cars i own. You take care of your car and it will take care of you. My 235k mile 01' IS300 is proof of that.

Thank you man i appreciate it. The matte blue metallic is pretty rare... I think i might be the first e92 on this forum to do it this specific color.... i've seen like 2 others pop up after I did mine... and looks like a few more are considering it. This color really does look amazing cuz of the metallic aspect of it. I highly recommend it. Even though my wrap job is maybe like 85-90% IMO, It looks darn good for a DIY job... gotten nothing but positive opinions on it in person thus far. It draws eyeballs and thumbs up like a mofo!

Finally I was able to find an e92 with this wrap! Damn that looks good! My car is LeMans blue and it feels a "waste" to wrap the car in "same color". I was thinking of matte white or orange. But orange is just too much.

It looks awesome!

Thanks man i appreciate it. bling factor goes up like 500% with this wrap so i recommend it either way lol. It's really a head turner. Then again some people dont like the constant attention. I personally dont mind it.

I would prob do this piece by piece. I don't midn the attention sometimes, thats why we buy "nice" cars lol. I can't only image how difficult it is to do the front bumper.

Did you wrap the door sills area?

on a scale from 1 to 10 its like a 58 lol. One of the hardest tasks i've ever endured. I left the door sills unwrapped. Didn't care for it. I just cut along the lines so it looks neat.

Oh WOW! I guess if I ever do this, the front bumper might be the last thing I need to do! lol, I might just leave out the door sills area esp my car is blue lol.

I need to double check since my full front end has the Ventureshield clear PPF. I would like to place it over.

How much roll did you use? 40'x5' or 50'x5' I migh order the 50' just in case lol.

The car looks a million times better with the stock LCI tails on. Car looks awesome now damn.... Have me thinking of saving money and coating my 220s instead of buying another set all together.

Haha..Just get them and your car will look brand new. I've never seen a SG with LCIs and your car is already squeaky clean. Looking at Donnie's splitters this weekend has me shopping for a set as we speak!

70x7 actually... dont go any less! and cut both front and rear bumpers from the same strip! Otherwise even 70 wont be enough.

Yeah the LCI's make a huge difference and 220's look great coated. Highly recommended!
