A friend of mine Stefan, decided to wrap his 1er. He did it one panel at a time. Panel by panel, it took him over 32 hours to finish the entire car. I thought you guys would enjoy this "build". I think it turned out very cool!


What do you guys think?

It is individual, but what I don't understand why he bought the Estoril Blue at extra cost and then wrapped it.

^ I guess the wrap may be seasonal/intermittent plus will protect the paint for a while, and then you still have that sweet blue underneath down the track. Always fun to change it up

It's a sweet colour and a fine job. 'Incredible Hulk' green maybe? Looks great!

Will look even better with the 405 wheels back on?

Nice work, but I think the car looks better in blue than green. Maybe the new colour is simply too flat? I do however like the black roof.

He's done a very good job. I can also understand why as the Estoril Blue has become so popular I can imagine it's nice to have something different.

10 points for the effort and craftsmanship! I have a white F20 and see more and more on the streets so I am also thinking of a color change.

So what to go for? This Ferrari baby blue...? Its does look good in white too though!

Someone please enlighten me... how is this at all special?

Of course wrapping a car is done one panel at a time. This color is hideous

Not keen on the colour, but I'd love to watch someone applying the vinyl wrap, looks fascinating.

I have trouble putting a screen protector on my phone so it's not a job I would want to do!
