Wow the 2017 is QUITE different. BMW always changing silly things in LCI.

Last night I decided to try my hand wrapping my whiskers in 3M matte black from a previous project. It went fine though it took me about 12" of vinyl wasted because of initial failure doing the wrap job. The angles are quite intense and since you need to wrap 3 sides (face, top, bottom) it gets a little... challenging.

I focused on the "top" of the whisker and face. Bottom is acceptable but not as good as face/top, which is more important. The matte vinyl I used is not a very deep black considering it's matte, so it has a very very dark grey appearance. Not sure if I like it enough yet or not.
