You can use wax on it I have a Ducati 1198 wrapped in white pearl satin and wax it all the time with no problem so far.
This M3 is wrapped with the same 3M i have on the Ducati: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=798956

The wrap is UV protected and has warranty for over 5 years. One of the benefits is that it actually protects your original paint and clear coat so when you want to change it back it will be preserved like new.
If you are a DIY type of person and feel adventurous, you can get the 3M roll and install it your self with a cost of under 1000USD.

For anyone interested in the process here's a video of car wrapping installation:
The blue Z4 looks awesome, but DIY ..

Well the car doesn't need to be perfect to wrap it, unless you expect it to look perfect after wraping. Film is 0.003" thick, in general, so it is going to conform and show any imperfections it is put over. You can do it to any car you want - you just have to do proper preparation.
