Hey, did you use CF vinyl trim, or the fabric type? I have the fabric type over alum trim on my 335, and unfortunately it's bubbled in some spots and started peeling on some edges, so be careful who you get to glue it on if you're going the fabric look. They should go over the edges as much as possible and under with a bit of fabric so it doesn't stretch back over the edge.

Heard the vinyl is easier to work with and easily comes off later, just not as nice to the touch.

PS Are you in the medical / dental industry?

What aren't you pleased with about your wrap?

I'm in the dental industry, that's why I was wondering.

Nothing really special on the interior ... looks like any other E60/61 with sport seats and gray leather.

rear is stock air ride, but the shocks got switched out with the ones that came in the KW kit. The kit also comes with adjustable links to trick the auto level computer into lowering the rear.

Was planning on it, but I might be putting the car up for sale in a month or two as I now have a F250 as well and I dont really need the utility of a wagon any more and am thinking about picking up a sports coupe (M3 or GTR).
