Dakar Yellow, Laguna Seca Blue, or Matte Red M3 wrap?

Hey guys. So I sold my 2011 e90 IB M3 a little over 6 months ago(one of the worst decisions that I have made so far in my near 25 years on this earth) and will be selling my Evo X to get an 08 or 09 e92 M3 within the next 2-3 months. I am planning on getting the vehicle wrapped as I want something a little more wild than the standard white, silver, or black M3 and wanted to know if you think I should go with Dakar Yellow, Laguna Seca Blue, or Matte Red?

Wouldn't go matte red, IMO that colour doesn't do justice to the lines of the car.
A buddy is wrapping a car in Fire Orange ... looks pretty good and screams for attention. I'm sure he'll post some pics in a few days.

The fire orange wrap sounds awesome! I am not a big orange guy so I don't think I would do that but it does look great and really jumps out.

I've always loved Laguna Seca Blue. I've been considering that wrap myself.

Do wrapped cars look like real paint or like it's paper?

Either color choice works for me.

Personally, not a big fan of wraps.

I vote for speed yellow. A little darker yellow than Dakar Yellow.

There is a fully loaded MPE Dakar Yellow M3 that also has deviating stich (sticker is $87k) that was just marked down to move at nearly $10k off at my local dealer (BMW Encinitas). They also have that crazy looking Lime Green in stock.

Where are you planning on getting the vehicle wrapped? I have thought about getting my roof wrapped and was looking for someone in the Pittsburgh area.

By the way, I had a Gallardo wrapped Matte grey for a client. Looks great. I'm sure the outcome is based on the installer and how experienced they are at it, much like window tinting. Ask to see some of the work they have done.

I'm still getting price quotes from people plus I have to sell my Evo X first before I buy the M3 and get it wrapped. Have you heard good things about anyone who does wraps in Pittsburgh?

Fire Orange is sweet.

I would have it done but I got quoted a little over $3k which is ridiculous.

I may just do it myself.
