So do I. It'll match the front CF Splitters and Vorstiner Rear Diffusor perfectly. Can't wait for all of them to come in.

Raja, it was great meeting you and you are an awesome man, my brother. I hope to be able to sit down and talk with you some more because I enjoyed the time we were talking outside.

Update for everyone else: I picked up the wrap.

3m 1080p Scotchprint film. It's nice and texturized.

any questions ask away, that's why the forum is here for.

you may want to see each type of material and pattern with your own two eyes instead of over a photo on the web.

I've seen some pretty good ones and some pretty tacky patterns, b/c you're spending a good sum of money getting it done, I would be very careful in your pattern selection.

You should consider pattern's thickness appearance, weave, glossiness, color (believe it or not, black is not black, and gray is not gray, there are so many shades your head would spin).

If you find a paint swab card at Home Depot bring it in to Raja and see if he can match a certain gloss and color shade.

personally, i would choose a deep gloss black with a 2x2 weave. But the "deepness" of the black and gloss is subjective. Also not sure what color your Z4M is lol
