Hello there XPEL Stealth on Marina Bay Blue LCI X3MC

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just got my wife's 2022 x3mc back fully wrapped in Xpel Stealth and went a step farther and had the roof, mirror caps, and all black accent pieces all wrapped in semi gloss Carbon Fiber PPF. It's amazing how MBB is so bright and reflective it actually hides the body lines.

Looks good! I was going to get my roof wrapped in black semi gloss PPF ( I don't have the pano roof), thanks for sharing.

Okay, now I want to do this. Do you know what brand PPF that was? Xpel? 3M? I was going to PPF parts of the car but carbon seems like a cooler idea if I'm going to do it.

Lol. It's the look that counts. My wife wanted accents like what's on my M8GC... and she love it and that's what matters!


And her car finished getting wrapped in time since this happened 2 days to her X7 M50i...

I'll find out.

It honestly looks better than the OEM CF.

I'm really impressed by the CF wrap. I would have assumed it'd clearly look like a film, but the gloss really makes it. Nice!

It's ok if you'd rather not say... what did this run you?

Wow, that's stunning!! MBB really goes well with the carbon fiber. You just inspired me. Could they do the carbon fiber wrap on the grill and side vent too? I would have thought that will give you the complete set.

Yeah it has the grain shimmer Iike real CF.

Entire job was $6400. The majority of that price was the Xpel of course.

For sure they could. I just wanted a bit of contrast.

Looks great !

Does that CF film match the interior CF trim?
Maybe someone can experiment wrapping the center console piece

Looks fantastic with Stealth. I'm considering Stealth on my incoming Dark Graphite too... Haven't been able to find any pictures of what that would look like.

Looks fantastic! Had no idea you could get wrap of carbon fiber that looks that real. A lot of fake carbon fiber I've seen looks so obviously fake. I really didn't know it was fake until someone in this thread brought it up!

Absolutely beautiful! Congrats!

Lovely spec - love the MBB and new LCI wheels. The carbon wrapped bits looks good too, I would have thought the mirrors were real CF if you hadn't mentioned it.

In doing research on wraps, Stek got very good reviews along with XPEL.

Car looks great!
