Thank you! i felt like matte on matte would look cool as far as the lights. I've never really liked shiny black tail lights. It only looks 'OK' on Lambo's if anything. but even if i had a lambo i'd go matte. When you see it in person it just really looks unique. and it ties in with the matte exhaust tips and tail. When the car is done amma record an HD walk-around with my NIKON DSLR and will post it on here so people can get a real look! Stay posted!

Otherwise, the wrap looks awesome. Like others, not feeling the tails, but to each his own.
Fox red interior lol... no yellow though. But yes indeed!

Good job!
Thank you! wish i could express it in words. Excruciating i would call it... for lack of better words. Lots of sweat and a little bit of blood involved lol. And many hours and much patience. And lots of back and finger pains... i dont think i'd bear with the process twice... but the attention the car gets now vs. stock is like 1000% so its totally worth it IMO.

Thank you! maybe later if i get bored of the current look. I'm actually slowly falling in love with it as is as far as the back is concerned. Everyone that sees it in person goes nuts

Do you guys wrap often? This Sh*t's hard as hell!!!
Nice, in that case, your pictures just do not do the wrap justice This color is amazing. Yes we do, we do 1-2 full wraps a week... and yes! it's not easy, a lot of time and work is needed to do it right.

mad props on your car, fell free to let me know if you need anything, I distribute parts as well

Tails are Horrible IMO - Has anyone said that yet????

Nice work on the wrap. Not something I would consider especially since I like your original color but it appears as if you did a fantastic job. The nice thing is that you can always remove it if/when you tire of the color! Enjoy your M3!

I love the matte blue! I've wanted to wrap mine in matte clear (already blue). I do have to agree that the tails look awful.

Wrap looks great, and I know you've heard it before, but the taillights look horrible. I know you want to match your wheels, etc., but even then I think the tails will look tacky imo. Smoked taillights only look good with a very light smoke imo. Maybe if you get a matte black diffuser, and front lip to match, everything will be tied together a little nicer. As long as you like it though, that's all that matters.

Gotta agree with everyone else the tail lights are no bueno, although the matte looks pretty dope. Looking forward to seeing it with the wheels done.
