F83 BSM w/ Xpel Stealth

I recently had my F83 BSM wrapped in Xpel Stealth.

Thought I would share the pics if anyone was curious what a matte black F83 would look like.

Super happy with the result. Cleaning the car has become extremely easy.

Very nice!

I considered Xpel stealth for my full wrap but the additional costs swayed me away. Install is more ovbviously as everything needs to be wrapped..

Very sharp! Have to say that the black matte seems to be one of the best imo - how is this easier to clean other than any Xpel application - I have front half of my the car with clear Xpel but still requires the usual effort to keep clean I'd say - what am I missing?

Price is >$4k depending on the shop and how you want it done. I went with a high-end local shop I trust.

It took almost two weeks. But I wanted it perfect and the shop I used are perfectionists. There is only one seam on the entire car and it is almost impossible to find.

Looks great. Now you just need to remove those chrome side markers and get some black replacements.

Agreed. I plan on ordering the pieces and having the shop wrap and pop them in.
I just didn't time it right.

Well. I guess for me cleaning is both cleaning and waxing.

Now I just have to clean and most of the time it is just a wipe down with some detailer. The Xpel stealth feels like it is almost nonstick to be honest.

Time will tell of course. It may get harder to clean later.

Ah indeed - no it does clean vey easily and have to say I rarely ever seem to wax now - just a thorough wash followed by a detail wax too!
