XPEL Matte PPF results on Portimao Blue G80 M3

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Finally got my baby back after:

-XPEL Ultimate Matte PPF wrap
-Gloss black wrap on door handles
-Gloss black accent below side vents to break up the blue.

Turned out better than what I had imagined.

Nice!
Are you planning on putting on a different spoiler on the trunk, or are you leaving it as-is?

Going with an m4 style spoiler. Open to suggestions though.

Nearly indistinguishable to me. There was actually a frozen blue in the showroom today when I went to drop mine off for break in service. I snapped a pic of it to compare.

The left is factory frozen at the dealer today, the right is mine. Similar overhead lighting, same camera. Let me know what you think.

Gloss black accent below side vents is an interesting idea. I'd love to see that in person.

Overall, looks great.

I think I'd need the same angle photo for a real comparison.

I don't care for matte finishes personally, but that looks like a great job and I do like the black door handles, nice touch!

How much does wrapping an entire car cost?

Nice! I had the same thing done to my AW G80. (STEK Dyno Matte and STEK DynoShield with STEK DynoCarbon on the roof)

I love the accent piece below the side vent. Might have to try that out myself...

Just a heads up, I'm not sure how good your PPF guy (or gal) is but the door handles are probably not going to hold up for very long. Mine are starting to get a bit of lift in the high wear areas and I'm likely going to have them painted in the spring. Not a huge deal but my passengers comment that the handle feels "sharp" when they grab it.

Car looks awesome and I really like the black accent on the fenders.

Only ask is to please clean the lens on your phone. It will get rid of the haze in the pictures and make everything much more defined and vibrant.

I'm gonna say it…. I think yours looks better! More vibrant but still has that beautiful frozen effect

HAWT. That looks so good, well-played.

That was my backup plan in case my Individual request was denied.

Autoshield in San Diego.

There's a 1/4 inch area exposed under a portion of both headlights. I've already notified the installer and it will be addressed during our follow up appointment in case there are any other edges that lift up etc.

Otherwise, everything else is tucked and edges are seamless. They took apart my body panels for a bulk/custom install.

$5900 for bulk full wrap, coating on top of wrap, black door handles and side accent strip.

If I opted for a precut version, it would have been a few hundred dollars less.
