Hello M5 friends! It's been awhile since I posted, but thought it would be fun to take a look at the progression of car wraps my E60 M5.

It started out as a black car, but the day it arrived 2 years ago it immediately went to my friend's shop to get wrapped in 3M matte white (photos I've posted before):







Then I decided to do something ridiculous and have an artist friend hand paint 3,000 words (with paint pens) on the car to pay homage to my crazy marketing company and the sponsors that support me. Here are a few photos and a video:








I never planned on having the hand painted car forever and finally found a color I liked to rewrap with. The current wrap is a Hexis material and is a very unique grey that looks like light grey in bright light and gunmetal in the shade/night. Couple photos from this past week:











Hope you enjoy the progression and I'll never paint a car again!

Jason

Thank you much! Yeah, the hand painted look was pretty wild and I was ready to get back to a solid color.

kudos to you for trying all those variations-i won't ask about your hair or if you have any tatts!!
Hahaha, I have a buzzed head and no tatts. I don't have any piercings either ;)

Love the creativity with the matte white wrap and artists. The Miro 111s look awesome too
Thanks man, the Miros are fantastic wheels for the price.

I'm loving the latest color. Very unique!
Thank you!

The green might be camera lighting, as it's very gray in person. The white wrap was 3M and the gray wrap is HEXIS.

I love the evolution of your car! Keep up the good work.
Gracias!

Nice work! :goldcup:
Woooot!

The matte white with 3M was a bit of a ***** to keep clean. Maybe matte white in a different material would be better, but I had to use a special paint cleaner to get rid of grease smudges and pollen marks. Granted, I'm very detailed about my cars and the everyday person probably wouldn't notice, but the 3M matte white is just okay.

We did one just a shade lighter recently.
Love the look! What brand is the material? Have any trouble spots? I know the front bumper (near the ground) and the trunk lid gave my guys some trouble.
