I reckon this is originally a white 320i with a single digit number. Wrapped?

I find it ridiculous that the owners manage to spend so much on a wrap, that too a flashy colour but don't change the crappy stock rims to something which will suit the car more. Same thing on that earlier matte red 5. Both would look so much better with the right rims.

how much does this wrap around thingy cost? is it costlier than the regular matte painting?

Not sure if its cheaper than painting, but wrapping looks like a better option, as it maybe easier to bring the car back into original condition.

That said, the Orange matte finish looks hideous on the 3. Or maybe there is something wrong with my tastes

The Orange Beemer is begging for Gun Metal Finish rims.
Looks Crappy with the stock tyres and rims.

Heard that the regular wrap thing would cost around 50K, not sure though.

Here's one more pic of the car.

It's a 320i alright, corporate edition. Had caused some ripples when that number was won in an auction for a large amount of money.

Didn't know that it'd been wrapped. Thanks for the share!

Totally agreed ! The orange 3 looks hideous. While the Orange 5 with those alloys looks very good. I guess its subjective. I just dunno why the 3series guy chose this freaky looking color.

Simple. To stand out, of course.

There's a matte black Cruze in the same town, painted and not wrapped, with some of the panels having a glossier shade. The overall effect is totally wierd and pointless.

What orange? It's red, guys. Belongs to the F430/CGT Speed guy from Thrissur.

Also, the rims are stock, just painted in black.

The two matte red F10 5s in the state costed 35k to wrap, don't think the 3 would be 50. Those are spec rims for the 320i, 320d doesn't come with those.

Scorcher, 5er is orange indeed my friend! We took these pics last week. Infact he called the color "Lamborgini Orange"

And yea, it belongs to the same guy you mentioned and has stock rims. If I'm not wrong, the rims are not painted but stickered too..

Alright, but it doesn't one bit look like orange to me. Hope he maintains the wrap properly, for he is not one of the people known for taking good care of their cars.

I believe, the Fezza already has a dent or two.
