My last Dub was JazzBlue and I missed the color terribly... So I wrapped it [drool]

Color Is 3M Blue Raspberry and is amazing! Wrapping it was a challenge but as my day job im used to it by now haha. Great demo for our shop presenting Color Change Wraps

Actually looks really good. Much prefer this over nogaro that you usually see on s4's

Looks good. How do you compare the wrap to actual paint when looking at it? How difficult do you think it would be for a beginner to do this?

^this. I hate nogaro blue. it makes the car look like its made out of plastic, just like the laguna blue e46 m3's.

how much for the wrap and how much did you use?

Stunning! Looks fantastic man.

When you do a wrap like that, do you do the inner panels as well like the door jams and inside trunk edge? Can you take a picture with one of the doors open? Curious to see how it looks.

The finish on Wraps is VERY nice and looks like paint. Anyone who sees it assumes it is. Ive had seasoned Auto painters assume my roof was painted (been wrapped gloss black since I got the car). Best part of doing a good job on the wrap, but if you dont know how to do it right then it can look pretty iffy. Essentially anyone can do it, but the more experience you have the better the finish/outcome is.


oe rs4 bumper? Looks great with the cupra r lip

Yep, luckily it came with the car, Id be hard pressed to spend the $$ on one lol. But the bumper is NOTHING without a cupra lip.


^this. I hate nogaro blue. it makes the car look like its made out of plastic, just like the laguna blue e46 m3's.

how much for the wrap and how much did you use?

Yeah I wanted blue cause I loved my Jazz Blue 20th, but wanted something different from nogaro.

I ordered 20 yds and had a good amount extra if anything needed to be redone, or some spare for the future. Pricing Depends on where you get it, we are dealers so its different pricing.


you wrap the mirrors too?!

can you explain your process?

Wrapping the mirrors is a feat. Especially using One piece!. They say if you can wrap a mirror, you can wrap almost anything...But it takes patience and knowing how to work/stretch/heat the material properly without distorting the color and guaranteeing that it stays down.


Stunning! Looks fantastic man.

When you do a wrap like that, do you do the inner panels as well like the door jams and inside trunk edge? Can you take a picture with one of the doors open? Curious to see how it looks.

Thanks! Wrapping the inner door seams is possible and ill finish that eventually, for now im content and it doesnt bother me, the car is not "top dawg" class or anything haha but its really personal preference and how much you wanna spend. Most people just stick with the shell unless its a 2dr and they REALLY want it.

But There is no visible silver (or original paint color) standing around the car, I make sure of that on EVERY wrap we do. Ill try get some pics of that for you tomorrow

nice job! i love my wrapped car! i wanted to do a gloss wrap but was worried it would show flaws in the body more than the matte

Forgot to add this close up with the RS/bbk and Carbon fiber vinyl I used for the Side "gills" on the bumper

And the prepped trunk lid for wrapping. Curse VW/Audi Clearcoat! This is a junkyard piece (black none the lesS) so it was doomed. I just wend OCD and made sure it was clean hah.

I really like how it turned out.

I do dislike the wheels. They don't seem to match with the sportiness of the car. Not knocking on the RS's though.

BaseDrifter

I'd agree with the wheel comment, I'd love to see some thinnish 5 spoke wheels on there.

Whats more sporty than Beefy Original BBS Racing wheels?1!? [race] The Wheels def pop more then they did with the silver... But I like it

They are different, original, and the wheel specs are exactly what I wanted. I know they are not super stretched and im not on air, bonce I get bigger lips ppl will enjoy them more, but for now, form and function... I do have a set of Miro 112s that were on the car before for any track events.

I think the wheels are more classy than sporty. You can't even show-off the brakes with those.

I would like to see it on some Volks, SSRs, TRM, Enkei RPF-1s, etc.

You can probably afford two or three sets with what those BBS RS are worth.

GrapeBandit

I agree, dont like the wheels on that car. they are too small. either need bigger wheel or more low. not a fan of RS' s to begin with. the centers are too small and make the wheel look small. but to each is own. if you had a set of super RS' s, that would be a different story

I agree that Audi with the two tone is FUGLY. But two tone looks pretty normal on a Rolls Royce.
