Smurf Blue M3

This is a matte baby/sky blue vinyl wrapped done by the Autoworld Design guys in Montreal. The wrap is very well done.

Do you like the smurf or not?
Yay or nay????

Wow, never seen that blue on a car before. I'd sport it for awhile but it would get old.

I've seen a similar blue that I liked a lot but this looks a little too bright or my taste.

I'm just going to say No.

However, I really wanted to make a snide comment.

Looks like a matte version of the Porsche Mexico Blue, if it was not matte and more glossy like the porsche i would rock it.

I think BMW's Individual Santorini Blue is closer to Porsche's Mexico Blue.

This wrap is much lighter and more of a pastel, even as it sits photographed indoors vs the direct sunlight outdoor shots you posted of MB.


FWIW, I like the aforementioned SB and Porsche's MB, as well as Tightie's old E92 wrap, but this one is too pale for me.

I think it's cool but would def. get old quick. Way too light. I've yet to see a matte blue that beats the 3M matte blue metallic color which i chose to wrap mine in. Not just saying it cuz its mine, but The blue is amazing. Can't see myself ever getting tired of it.

If it were a deeper blue, I would like it. Not a fan of this particular shade..
