Opinions on the color of my wrap (Finished Pictures)

After having an E92 with a military green wrap for almost 4 years I've been wanting something more special for my F32 and I think I have found it. What does everyone think?
Here are some pictures of the finished product taken with my phone

Nice! What is that red satin?


Wraps are amazing.... had my black NSX wrapped over three years ago in pearl white...still looks brand new with nothing more then a quick wash now and then.

It is Satin super chrome red from Hexis, Once the car is finished I will hopefully be able to capture the color a lot better!

Is that frozen (matte) color? How much did you pay? I bet is more cost effective than BMW Individual. Did they do the door jambs as well?

Its a satin chrome, I paid 3750 for the wrapping of the car. They did not do door jambs(You can but it would just cost extra) They did make sure the original color can't be seen when the doors are closed.

I see you're in Netherlands so I'll have to convert that to USD. Typically here it's around $2500 USD range. I'm curious as to how much a pre-owned wrapped car would sell for, or do folks normally remove the wrap before selling? Does it increase resale value or diminish it, normally aftermarket stuff has no effect or reduces resale value, so whoever buys it gets all the aftermarket goodies for dirt cheap.

For a normal wrap you would pay around 2500 USD but because this is a special color and has a chrome layer it is a bit more expensive and takes longer to apply properly. I sold my previous car with the wrap on it to the dealer I bought this car from, I had pictures of the paint when they started wrapping the car to prove the condition of the paint. In the end, wrapping your car will cost you money but the value of the car will drop less due to the paint being protected in my experience.

Pretty sure if there is a shop around that wraps cars they can get the color!

Looks dope! I'm sure you're much happier with that than the army green huh?

Curious how the paint held up after being wrapped for four years?

I'm going on four years with my wrap on the NSX. I love what the wraps have done for the car industry. Amazing.

Very VERY impressive! I am very interested how the wrap was applied on the edges. Can you see that's it's a wrap?
