my original statement on these films still stands true...and i even called Premier to confirm this. see, the film they offer is satin guard. that would turn your average gloss job to matte. you can use it on a frozen car....but unless you cover your whole car....you'll see a difference, not only in color, but texture as well.

actually, if you decide to cover your whole car, the color would be noticeably different that what you originally had,too.

but, if that's what you wanted to do, the cost?

$7500.00

at that price, i'd just wrap the car a different color for $3500.

so, i'll just have to wait until film comes out for Frozen. but see as how my M3 won't be a DD...i'm not too worried.

I'm familiar with satin guard and the cost associated, and wouldn't recommend the redundancy on a frozen paint. What I was actually suggesting was to just use one of their low-gloss clear films (understanding you would have to wrap the whole car) that will still allow the frozen effect to come through...oh well, if it's not going to be a DD or see track duty? ...as you said, no worries.

well, i feel dumb...i should've asked about other options. low gloss makes sense. even though you'd have to cover your whole car, you may get closer to retaining your original color that way over the satin stuff....and keep a matt look.
