Sparkling Grpahite - Finally!!

So after 2 months of waiting and then another week to get Bra'd and tinted I finally have my completed car.

It's somewhat of a rare color and IMHO it is a really nice color in person.

1st DCT in the Bay Area - or at least one of the first... First from East Bay BMW in Pleasanton.

Let me know what you think. - BTW I am waiting for the pedals (thanks for the info Swamp) and the floor mats (m3) from the dealer!

**Full Wrap Bra & 40% Tint

I don't want to mention his name via the forum. He was not the greatest, IMHO.

As for the tinting and bra, I went with Omega Tintworkz, it is literaly around the corner from the dealer. Vincent is the shop owner and does a great job. My suggestion would be to plan ahead and get an apointment with time. He gets really busy. (do a search on here for Omega and you'll see the work he does.)

Looks good.
I wouldn't call a regular 3-series color "rare".

Looks nice. Congrats

I think the color is rare for the M3 in that not as many people selected it. Definitely looks great.

Wow, full wrap, you're not taking any chances.
It must have cost you a bundle. I did a full front wrap. What material does Omega use for the clear bra?

M

BTW...There was at least one car I know of that was DCT that arrived over 3 weeks ago in Northern CA.

Your car looks outstanding. It is rare in that you have the wood trim. Again, very nice finished product!
