Can't resist Modding my cars. Here's the winter list;
Xpel stealth wrap, paint calipers red to match interior, diffuser, and a few other small things..

Nice - Are you doing it yourself? Can I ask how much you paid for the material needed to wrap it?

Yea you definitely can but most people will just end up destroying it if they don't know what they're doing.

Nice wrap! Is the pic with the gloss already? It looks pretty matte, no?

The pic is with the xpel stealth wrap which gives it the matte look that I was going for.

I've been contemplating doing xpel stealth since I first got my car. BSM is too hard to keep clean and that satin looks soooo good

If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost?

Haha I've always owned black and when I was looking for My M4 I wanted to stay away from it. I decided to go to black cause I knew this is what had to happen
Immediately. I just don't have the time to keep it clean. So for the xpel and ceramic coat the whole car plus wheels , calipers and all the glass $5500

oh gotcha. Idk where I thought I read you said you were leaving the hood glossy. maybe I'm going crazy.

Anyways looks great man. The matte gray is such a great color. And looks like you got a pretty decent deal which is cool. I'd be pretty excited to get it home

Your not going crazy.. I did say that but then edited it because I decided not to do it. What I meant was I was only going to do the cowl part of the hood glossy .

That's good to know for small replacement pieces. No way in hell would I attempt to wrap the whole car.
