this one has been going on for an awful long time

bought to us initially around october last year the owner just wasn't a happy man

the car is number 1 of 30 performance editions which where factory wrapped by 3m in collaboration with BMW

the original wrap he just wasn't happy with so after some discussion they agreed to completely replace with new

this you would have thought to be an end to it

sadly not - the second wrap which you are about to see fell a long way short of the mark too

dodgy cuts and some areas just not wrapped at all it soon started to peel and pucker up

other cute tricks like selotaping down the edges even made me giggle !!

on arrival





ridiculous place to have a join instead of just removing the spoiler





other areas with issues





































obviously this wasn't salvageable so off it came



areas like this showed how little was removed from the car



once removed a number of areas where unfortunately cut through and into the metal

this was reported to the owner and the car returned to BMW to rectify​

You are really in a different league when it comes to rapping. Looks great. Could you take some close ups like you did before of the areas that were botched so we can see the difference please.

managed to grab these on the way out for you buddy

petrol flap under rubber before it fell short



no paint now showing with the door shut



roof corners fully covered and super smooth



door handles fully wrapped rather than just the front



front bumper fillets neat and not bridged



nice even insertion into doors depth



side skirt neatly into a swage rather than wobbly in the middle of nowhere



number plate reveal fully covered



parks sensors actually wrapped



same around the reflectors - this wasn't covered at all previously



now runs straight under the spoiler



lots of small details that really add to the overall finished standard

Loving that colour on an M5. Excellent work.

Never thought about wrapping any car of mine but the more i see these perfect results the more i think perhaps one day:)

Mine is getting stickered up for Le Mans this week but that's the closest i've ever got:)

Amazing that the original job they seemed to want to only use the bare minimum of material!
Shocking considering the cost from new of that car.
As always, a top job from Paul showing us all how it should be done.

Looks like quality work as usual Paul :cool:

Out of interest did BMW stump us the cash for it to be rewrapped by yourself as it was such a **** up in the first place or did the customer have to foot the bill?
