    kaching! - very nice!

    It looks like a quality job to be fair.. but like Steve says - WHY tango it?.. not sure it 'works' together - although if it was plain carbon then it might look a lot better..

    just thought I'd through it out there as I'd seen a few carbon wraps before - but never seen a Z3 done..

    I met Bulldogtinting the other day and he has a business that does this sort of thing. I think he said £1600 for my E60 to be done in carbon wrap.

    Tidy work in the wrapping but prefer the real stuff myself. The vinyl never has the "depth" look of even dry carbon when done on a large scale such as even a door. For the most part it just looks matt black paint...of which I do like in certain cars.

    I should not have a say, cause I work with real carbon fibre.
    Why fake carbon fibre ? I think if the car was done in matte black would look just great.

    But great wrapping.

    looks good but that's because from the pics you can't see the detail of the carbon fibre that well. (im not a big fan of carbon fibre) for me matt black with the orange go faster stripes. the grills need to be mat black as well...and no orange rim tape.
