For detailing or clearbra work I'd highly recommend Raja Ventureshield on the forum-just PM him.

I also have an e93 and looking to get the trim vinyl wrapped very soon. I am working out with Raja if he is able to do it. Otherwise there is a shop in sterling, va area called zebra stripes (check out there website) that did for another forum member for ~$200--came out great. Will let you know what I end up doing.

I can help you out when I'm back in town next week. I've wrapped my whole car twice. Raja is too much of a wuss to vinyl wrap. (Sorry Raja, but I don't buy your "I'm too busy" excuse)

So just got phone message from zebra stripes who wanted $300-350 to do trim wrap in gloss black. Yikes! Maybe costs more than matte black? Maybe this is to wrap whole car? Will call them..

Damn that is alot for just the windows. Whole car would be in the thousands. There was no cost difference in the gloss or matte when i got it done.

Maybe he is seeing a pent up demand for this and raised prices?
