Matte white X3

Hi,

Thought I'd share a couple of pics of my newly vinyl wrapped matte white F25 X3. Took delivery of it exactly a month ago, but didn't have time to do the vinyl wrapping until today.

The entire body is wrapped in vinyl, including grille and rails which are now matte black. Windows are tinted all around, including a light tint on the front windows.

I'm very pleased with the results. Hope you like the pics.

Karl

That actually looks great IMO! The matte white shows off the body lines and sculpting very well by allowing some deeper shadows and contrast. Very unique.

Thanks!

That was actually exactly the effect I was hoping for, and some contrasting black to top it off. Would've liked to do black wheels as well, to really set it off, but a bit hesitant as it's my company car...

Looks great, very interesting. How long does the wrap last? What type of maintenance is involved with keeping it up?

Very nice! Love the all black trim with it too. Origonally I wanted all black trim with my mineral silver just to be different but the dealer told me no can't do it... roof rails are only for M sport and black grill is for europe diesel models only... looks nice with the wrap though.

Anyway, congrats, looks beautiful and very unique! Me like!

Wrap is the same type a lot of taxis use, and is designed to last for up to five years. My car is a company car on lease, so will go back after three years either way.

No extra maintenance needed, just wash it like a normal car.

Additional benefit is that original paint will look brand spanking new when your remove vinyl.

Wow this is a really great job. Looks great, looks original from factory. I'd not know it was wrap from distance.

Looks amazing!!!

how much does something like this cost to have done?

Also, are there any issues with stone chips with the vinyl wrap?
I'm assuming the bumper and hood across the front would get ripped after time?

Thanks

Karl... This looks great. I am with you 100% on the contrasting black on the trim. One question though....this is a company car? What company gives our BMW's to their employees? Just curious.

I think he means that he leased it under his business, but the OP should correct me if I'm wrong
