Alpine white to matte black?

As the title states, I have an e92 AW m3 and was thinking about wrapping it matte black. Has anyone done this before? Any opinions appreciated. Thanks.

The color change is excellent. I have a Special Edition Frozen Blue M3 with the entire front end wrapped in clear matte

Kind of disappointed in the wear it seems to mark up easily. I've hand washed the M3, so. Can't blame a car wash.

In its defense, I haven't attempted to use either BMW or Swissvax matte wax to remove. I had another car with clear XPEL wrap and it looked and remained shiny with no marks, even using a soft brush car wash.

Frozen blue is so hot! I chose to do satin black. I want some shine on the car lol
