E92 M3 Satin Pearl Wrap - Finished Pics

After a couple days of waiting the car is back from a fresh wrap. Now that its all said and done I feel I chose the best color for this car. I've personally seen matte orange, matte blue, matte black M3's and IMHO the satin pearl really gives the entire car a very exotic and classy appearance. Matte colors are a bit dull for my taste; satin wraps are a great compromise between matte and the original glossy color.

Notes:
Original Color: Alpine White
Material: 3M™ Wrap Film 1080-SP10 Satin Pearl White
BMW CF Spoiler, BMW CF Mirror Caps, BMW CF Splitters, Black Edition Grills, Black Edition Gills(on order), Satin Black hood vents(on order), CF Hood+Trunk Emblem

More pics will follow tomorrow morning after tonights local BMW meet. Heres a teaser of the final product. Yes, the hood vents were not wrapped as replacement satin black vents should get delivered this week.

I would think it would simply reduce the gloss appearance of your factory paint and 'flatten' out your color.

loving the contrast!
how are the door handles on your car with this wrap? Ive seen some cars wrapped this color, and they have a quite a few dirt marks and smudges.

A friend of mine wrapped his white C7 in the Xpel Stealth wrap and it came out great I think. It looks a lot like the frozen M's IMO.
