My E93 Black Matte Trim install experience

Hey All...

Even before I took delivery on my E93 M3 back in Sept I knew i'd have to do something about the stock aluminum trim eventually. My options were paint it (and risk easy scratching or flaking), somehow order matte trim from BMW in Europe (cause they don't offer it as an option here and big $$$$$) or get it vinyl'd in black like so many we've seen on the forum. Like a lot of you I'd seen Brandon@EAS's posts on before and after shots of his Vinyl work to fix my very problem. My issue was.......he's in CA and I was in TX.

So not really thinking he would agree......I PM'd Brandon and asked if he'd mind flying out to TX to vinyl my trim. To my surprise he agreed and the journey began.....

Check out the video below to see how it went down in glorious HD :-)



I would like to thank Brandon Smith once again for blowin his Saturday to do this for me. He only had a 5 hour window in Dallas to install the trim and put in my ibrights and about 2 hours and 15 mins after he got started he was done and we were eating burritos :-). Awesome job my man!

Another BIG UPS goes to Nerces @ Autoscope for kindly allowing Brandon and I to use his SICK shop here in Dallas. My loyalty to them now will know no bounds :-)

Lastly, thanks to Tony Stark for loaning the briefcase ;-)

EAS has gained some stars in my book! Someone needs to post a video of Tom so we can all see him! Someone from EAS needs to come out to Hawaii and help me out with my interior bad! It needs an overhaul!

you just gave me a new idea for my Jet Black E93. Yours looks great.

EAS rocks, they did my TVin Motion and even gave me a great deal on black side markers and black front grills. My pictures will be up as soon as my HRE's get put on.
