Update: Added an M3 Coupe in matte black from Bimmerfest 2009 event

I’m not sure about you, but as far as myself, I have not seen yet a 3 Series in matte black. Sure, we’ve seen before the Lumma CLR 500 RS(BMW M5) sporting the same “paint”, then a pretty cool X6 sporting the same style and today, we will show you the first BMW 3 Series, most specifically 335i, covered with a matte black vinyl wrap.

The car belongs to nlakind, a member of e90post forum, and the matte black vinyl wrap was created by Vinyl Styles shop in California. It’s an 8-10 year vinyl that is washed by using a mixture of water and baby shampoo because there is no ammonia in baby shampoo.

Despite the total cost of $3,000, there are some great benefits to this, as outlined by the owner as well: more affordable than painting your car, it protects the paint and it doesn’t depreciate the value of your car. Let’s assume that you get bored of it down the line, it can be removed and the original paint remains intact.

Despite the obvious “Wanna be Batman” badge, the 335i looks amazing, unique and it definitely stands out. Sure, $3,000 sounds expensive, but I’ve always said that BMW fans will do anything for and with their cars.

And here is a BMW M3 Coupe in matte black done by Loud Ocean of Santa Ana (Thanks for the photos Khoi)

    Black looks fine, but if you are going to go to the trouble of vinyl wrapping the car why not make it look interesting, like zebra stripes. Of course that would be hell to make sure it looks seamless.
