orange unless your interior is red... then maybe white goes better with red interior... as i have the same thought of wrapping my alphine white car orange but because my interior is red so im still a bit hesitant as to whether they go well toghether. black/grey interior will go well with orange for sure.

That's funny... my interior is Extended Fox Red. HA! I guess we'll see how it looks with orange.

i voted matte white, i love the orange but matte white is classy and i think fits the m3 like a glove (especially now you said you have red interior)

May i ask how much it will be?

Orange looks great at first but I feel like I'd get over it very quickly. But than again to go from white to matte white, you must as well do orange.

I remember seeing a Fire Orange with Red Interior a while back, let me see if I can find the pics... I don't recall spitting my drink out but of course black would have been better. Matte Pearl White is a nice wrap, I guess I've just seen too many white M3s to the point of boredom.



Here is another GTS pic bahahaha

A friend of a friend owns a vinyl shop... Two of his guys will do it for 500 plus the cost of vinyl... Around 1k total.

That was my worry too. I may get bored too quickly and I spent 1k on it. White is classy... No argument there.

Here is an idea of what it would look like:

I had a "murdered out" look and got bored with it... I think vinyl is a cheap alternative to a color change.

As much as I like GTS M3, I think it would be a little weird with fox red... So I went and purchased matte white 3m.

Gloss orange would look super aggressive. Black accents too

If you're going to do white - I would say go satin instead of matte. The pearl satin looks really good too.

Too late now. Matte already ordered. There aren't many m3's around here... Matte white will be unique to me for sure.
