▀▄ eas - Carbon Black 7 Series M Sport blackout

Here is Giancarlo's Carbon Black 7-series M Sport. Using matte black vinyl, the following parts were wrapped:

-Front M-sport specific "teeth"
-Rear M-sport specific "teeth"
-Rear trunk handle trim piece
-Door Handles

We decided to leave the front grilles and the side marker surrounds chrome, to tie in the chrome lip on the ISS wheels. The matte black vinyl was also chosen to accent the matte black centers on the wheels.

Thanks for looking!

Brandon

Thats a sweet ride. How would we go about getting some of the vinyl for all the chrome? Do you just apply it on top? Is it precut or do you do it in house??

I just use a large roll of high performance outdoor vinyl and cut it according to what ever piece I am wrapping

Could use a bit of a drop, but otherwise this car looks sinister and great!

Brandon,

Even though your theme was to leave a little chrome up front, I think there's too much chrome.

Just like your wheel rims, try doing the grill nostril vertical fins in your matte black vinyl treatment, and leave the outer "ring" of the grill nostrils in chrome. That will give a finished look to the opening but take away some of the brightness.

This is an excellent idea, and would basically follow the scheme of the wheels perfectly! I may have to go do this

I have to say it, but those wheels look so small.


Please do not go with 40 inch rims though...

Well matched. Like others have said... the wheel gap needs a slight disappearing act

Help?

I would like to have the chrome "wrapped" on my new 2011 750 LI with the M package as depicted in these photos. Does anyone have a source other than EAS to have this done? I contacted them and they were unable to help me.

I contacted my auto body rep and he said he can't paint the chrome and the BMW parts dept. can't order replacement painted parts other than the chrome ones.

Would love anyone's suggestions.

The paint won't adhere to the chrome...even if they strip it down.
