I've been living in my new apartment for a week now and recently noticed a conspicuous car hiding under a cover across the way. Peeking out from underneath the gray shroud was a matte pink BMW E90 335i. As I've stated before, pink cars generally disgust me, but for some reason, I adore this one.
After my discovery, I had been itching to get a better look at it, and tonight, I got the opportunity when the owner parked it in the lot outside my building. Unfortunately, all I had was my phone and I doubted I'd have time to run back up to my room to get my camera, so a few grainy photos will have to suffice for now.
Originally, I thought the car was actually painted this color. Closer inspection revealed this is just a wrap.
For those who don't know, a wrap is a type of vinyl that may be fitted over the entirety of a car's body. The wrapping process requires three steps: measuring the dimensions, creating the wrap, and applying it to the vehicle. This can be done is a little as one day and the wrap can last for up to five years. No damage is done the paint, and the wrap will stay in place until it is removed.
This particular job was done by Impressive Wrap in El Monte, CA. A bit of searching online brought me to their Facebook fan page and an entire album documenting the process of wrapping this 335i, which is white underneath. My photos really don't do it justice so I recommend perusing through them, but perhaps with a bit of luck I'll get another chance to see it out in the open and I'll have my camera on hand next time.Job well done for Impressive Wrap, I am in fact impressed lol. I look forward to seeing this car around, it's quite the head turner. -Etoria ❤
