Given that my 1991 325i sedan has some paint issues that are probably best solved with a respray, but a good respray is probably not worthwhile given the value of the car, I am on the lookout for less expensive options.
I was considering rat style (see my other post
) but it is a bit too attention-grabbing for my linking.
So now I am considering painting or wrapping my car in a matte finish.
From what I have read, painting in matte is easier than gloss as poor workmanship or preparation is less likely to stand out.
I also read a forum post
by a guy who had wrapped his car himself very inexpensively.
Because my car is silver I am considering a grey matte colour rather than black.
In some photos I have seen, such as E90 M3s, the colour looks great.
But in some, such as this Lamborghini, I don't think it looks good at all.
And on an E36 sedan like mine, truly awful.
Black is the more popular choice, and I found photos of quite a few E36s which have been painted or wrapped in this colour and finish.
