My god John, as I said in the email, the DPEs look absolutely fantastic. And, I really do think they look better on your car than they did on mine. The wheels just match the color of your car so well. If I were you I'd leave the car as is and not bother with the matte white. I think it just looks perfect right now. I'm really starting to wish I would've kept the wheels now... :( In any case, enjoy them and they look great. Look forward to seeing more pics of the car with the new wheels :cheers:

Wheels look great. The matte white wrap is interesting, love to see it when it's done. How will you do the front lip? Also, since you painted the eyebrows, do they still light up and can you see it through the paint? Is it legal to paint over it? Kind of gives it a menancing look particularly since you blacked out your grilles.

Thank you, I'm probably just going to paint it gloss white, but 3D surfaces aren't too hard, just need heat and time.
Actually the dealer turned the orange beam off for me so just the halos light up, the only thing possibly illegal is me painting over the reflector but cops never care about that.

Wow, looks like u need the patients of a buddist monk to apply it properly.

Can't wait to see the finished result!
Yes, you need to be the zen master :biggrin: haha
John,

Check out Signwarehouse or Beacon Graphics, maybe some of their vinyl application tools might help you out. :)

You gotta get some music going on, so quiet, LOL
Thanks Kreative! Just trying to get the white and black look like SOMEONE on this board :blink:
wow that requires a TON of patients. Props to you when you pull this off :cheers:
Thanks Matt! Wouldn't be as cool if you didn't sell me the DPEs :applause:

I won't ;)

That'll be a finishing touch, but yes I've seen his! It looks great, that along with the other 10+ matte black M5s...

Fyi there are several matte white wrapped cars here , the problem in Sweden is that after winter season you need to rewrapp certain parts since they become slightly brownish , the salt/snow nastiness gets into the pores of the wrapp hence matte black is a better choice at least in scandinavia :)

Pshhh then why have I never seen them! :confused2
I know what you mean though, I had my other car painted in matte white and it's kind of stained, such a shame. Can't go wrong with black though!

At least you could turn all your lights off and people could only hear you in the dark of the night ;) haha
The weather is definitely nice here, hopefully I'll be done in a week!

For what it is worth, I am now officially begging you not to do it. Even if you girl will appear buck nekkid on the white, I would prefer that you kept the grey just as you had it. The car was perfect other than HP tunes. It was both aggressive and stylish - appearing starkly appealing without looking guido. Please keep it an focus on something different like the interior, HP mods, or ANYTHING. Please. I am just asking.

Wow you're REALLY against it! Well worst case scenario is I can just peel it off and the grey will always be there!
