Wrap it, I love flat black. And if you don't like it then hell, drive the Scud.

A word of caution though, the process will probably only come out right if you make sure to have sweet background music like in that video.

My Alpine White M3 is headed to me now. I say DO IT !!! ive heard nothing great about wraping AW in protective film because of it yellowing. Sooo worst case scenario you have a bad ass looking car with paint protection.

On a side note that Merc SLR in matte is one sick machiene!

The problem with the one in the link is they didn't do the door jams, or around inner hood or trunk which made it look incomplete
And on the E92 or E46 even the only way it looks good is to complete the look

The gilles/grilles need to be not chrome and black as well and wheels make it look 100x better if black too

I think it looks great. Thats what is great about freedom of choice. Everyone has different tastes... so we arent all driving the same color of the same car.

The other advantage is if/when you get tired of it, you just peel it right off.
