BMW owner tapes black car to white

BMW owner tapes black car to white



When a BMW 335i owner in Munich became bored with his black coupe, he hired a team to wrap it in white tape. Two days later, he drove home in his refreshed "Alpine White" coupe (with an M3-appearing black roof). No, it's not normal tape. It's a special 3M wrap, and the process is known as "foiling." Apparently, the German military has been using the process (with an olive drab tape) for some time now. Likewise, the process is popular with race teams and taxi companies. Available in countless colors, the tape itself is thick enough to protect the paint from minor chips and nicks, and it can be left adhered to the surface for 3-4 years without damage (!). Adhesion isn't a problem either, as the tape can even withstand an automatic car wash without peeling off. Thanks for the tip Frank.

Yes there is, some guys in Woodbridge. It's costly... $2295 for a small to mid-size car. to do "most" of the car. You can even get the wrap printed on with patterns, text, etc... www.perfectwraps.com DEFINITELY NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF ANY TYPE.

They have a god awful spam based marketing "tool" that is very poorly implemented. I do not recommend that you fill in your info on their site.

It's called "wrapping". No different than doing an advertisement wrap for a van or a Mini. Costs a mint to do and is stupid hard to do. Especially in one solid colour.

For cost, contact any vinyl sign company.
