Xpel stealth wrap + drop on Donington Grey X3MC

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I have found some good pictures of an X3MC with an xpel stealth wrap that I would like to share...it's not my car

Some more information about the car:
KW v3
Carbon package
racing stripes

Maybe those pictures can help someone to take the decission to do it or not

The black stripes are really unnecessary, but the Stealth looks ��

The wrap looks superb. Thanks for sharing!

PS. I wonder at what height KW V3 coilovers are set. The suspension appears to be a bit too low.

I thought MSS was the way to go? Wrap looks great!

Test drove a DG F97 this morning. My first thought (as with all my cars), was what would I wrap it in...the stealth would be great choice!

Wrap looks good, not too fond of the stripes. Don't understand why one would lower an SUV, defeats its purpose and looks odd

Agree. I understand reducing the wheel gap to an extent but the car in these pics almost look like their sitting on the wheels, like a fat hatchback, I think it'd look better sitting a bit higher. Other than that great color.

I agree that this car sits a bit too low. And I don't like that the wheels look tucked in.

X3 looks great but I spy an even more scrumptious RS6 back there!

Talking

Love the Drop Look !!

because dropping a SUV is as unnecessary as having a SUV in the first place...

I've heard this a lot about the X3M chassis.. does it really beat the shit out of you as bad as they say it does? How's it compare to a F8x?

As far as the car.. I follow the consensus here. Sick build and love the Xpel stealth but don't like the stripe. If I personally ever got the matte paint itch.. stealth all the way.. adds protection instead of removing it (with a true matte paint) and cheaper.

Looks good.
But now I have to think of other mods.
Was thinking to do stealth wrap this summer.

M2 driver here and have never owned an SUV. I had always understood folks buy SUV's because they "sit up high" and easy to get in and out of. Struggling to understand why to lower it then, although it does look better that way and not like a 4x4. Frozen looks good. Guessing lowering it will not make it handle like an Mcar.
