The brakes are purple too. I'll give the guy his props for trying to balance it all out at least.

I saw an actual C63 with a matte purple wrap. I kinda dig it, but would never buy it..

I like it, although I'd never do it myself. Only weird thing is why both the cars kept those nasty orange reflectors.

In general, though, I support unique and bold colors on high-end automobiles.

C63 pulled it off IMO, the OP car, not so much.

The C63 looks sick with the wrap, although, somewhat juvenile. The S-Class doesn't look good with the wrap.


And these wraps nowadays are just getting out of hand.

He drives a C63 AMG coupe with extra $$ spent on matte paint and he attends SMC? I thought maybe it was a UCLA student...

USC always has the nicest cars haha (although I have seen a bunch of BMWs and R8s and stuff at UCLA - I live minutes from Westwood Village).

SMC has a few nice cars too.. and school is very low cost if I'm not mistaken, so instead of tuition his parents bought him an expensive car...?

Poor investment in my opinion. He would have a better chance of getting a job to get an AMG himself if he graduated from a university rather than a community college.

I also live minutes from Westwood Village, corner of Veteran and Levering. I'm graduating UCLA this quarter, are you a student as well?

Very nice! I live in little holmby hills, right off Beverly Glen. But, I'm currently a sophomore at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. I have quite a few friends at UCLA! (although more at USC haha)
