Alpine | Vinyl Wrap Matte Black E93 M3



So it hasn't been a week since we got another satisfied customer on the wrapping end of Alpine.

Here we got a 2008 Sparking Graphite E93 M3.

This guy has had his M3 for about 21 months now, and simply wasn't happy with the Sparking Graphite color, and always searched for the perfect solution to matte black his leased M3.

He fell in love with the car, as if it was brand new, and I believe now he's satisfied with his cars paint job!

Enough with the talk, I know you all want pics!

Ahh, so the picture was very deceiving! lol

Looks nice, I like SG as well, but the black is def more unique. Amazing you can wrap the whole car without removing a single part. Crazy!

Best thing about this mod, is when your tired of it. You just pull it off.

Reason we didnt remove any parts on this vehicle is because the owner requested not too.

I believe its better if parts are removed, thats our usual procedure.

The M3 front + rear bumper are easy to work with if you dont want to remove them though.

How do you take care of the car (wash/etc) after something like this? How do you keep it clean?

Just a simple wash & wipe down.

You can not buff or detail any of these materials.


We do carry a material that you can detail and treat just like paint, it's actually metallic & gloss colors.

what's the estimated cost on wrapping an M3? Not that I'd ever be able to do it thru you guys, I'm in FL. But I have given it much thought.

Looks great! Price? And whats the difference between not having parts removed and the normal way? Is there a difference in quality?

Can you PM the cost as well.
Also, do you have the clear vinyl wrap that mattes your original color, I've seen that done and looks pretty cool.
THanks!

PM'd Price.

Difference between removing parts or not is the quality & final look.

Behind door handles it wont look complete, it will look like a "cut & paste" job.

Not the kind of work I like to see, I'm a perfectionist, it's sort of like an OCD, lol.
