That's odd. It doesn't look green at all!

any rear shots of it? looks great. When my 35iS starts to chip will have to swap out the white and get it wrapped. This color is very very nice indeed.

How much would something like this cost? Just curious. I like the matte/frost blue. Could be an interesting way of getting a "new" car. I'm growing a bit tired of the space grey.

Well it's not my car, just another forum member in the UK. It was about $2500 dollars....but that didn't include the door shuts,which is pretty stupid as you don't really want to be seeing yellow when you open and close the doors.

I agree it looks great!!

How long does a wrap like that last before you have to replace it?

In Germany or Greece that I know for certain 3M wrapping costs around 900-1300Euro (Depending of course on the size of the vehicle, on installers rates and 3M type, matte metalic like this one is more expensive).
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:

This whole world of wrapping is still confusing the hell out of me. First off, that blue looks incredible.

How would one clean the car? Can you / should you wax it after getting it "wrapped"? I cant imagine great things when trying to wax a sticker.
