It got a lot of pictures and laughs. I was just lazy and didn't feel like washing it.

I made to sure to park it between 2 guys wiping their cars down with quick detailer.
Did they atleast offer to quick detail yours?

OY GEVALT is what I would say if I did not know better.

But that has to be the most Bitchin Wraps I've ever seen.

How do they do custom work like that? Do they have just these huge ink plot printers specifically made for the M3 wrapping material with special inks and such?

Get your car to look like that would be the Antithesis of Constant and Epic Competitive racing over several years on a per each weekend basis. And sadly I don't believe there is "Racing" insurance for actual Racing. And never wash it and only replace items that are needed to get the car drivable and raceable.

EDIT: Apparently there is Insurance for EVERYTHING Racing. From racing events, racing cars, racing venues, racing teams which include all people going over the wall for adding race fuel and replacing tires to covering huge crowds that showup at NASCAR events. It's extremely rare now but Ticket Holding Fans have an extremely low Mortality or Injury Rates during a Racing event. I wonder how much money the Insurance Broker makes off of one time racing events where each time there is not a claim? Crap happens at every race but the Broker and Salesman must still get a good payout. Think I should switch from going up the ITIL ladder where I can make Lidigation lawyer money and work only six months out of the year! Or sell specialty racing insurance?

I just see an owner with a sharp sense of humor and willing to spend money chasing a reaction, thumbing his nose at how precious this car has become while having his cake too. I bet he chose the now cliche Martini scheme as a wink inside the joke.

...or it's just a goofy wrap.

^^ I was referring to Trakcars old RS with all it's battle scars and how many smiles it must have give him to accomplish that look , as for the Rat tini very artistic and saves the hassle of washing and waxing and all the **** fuss that I bother with to keep my car looking "right"
no doubt be fun to be such a free spirit with a check book too!!

Of course I was just trying to deduce how long it would take a car in Number #1 condition to gather the racing scars and bruises while (RACING). Not talking about Track Days/Track Event's either too. A full on racing nut.

LOL for sure the more economical path is the wrap for sure, that look would
have to take who knows how many sets of tires just for starters and brake pads and and and, plane fares and hotels and 4 motors later , and so on

the body style is too new for this wrap.
Would look better on a 84-89 carrera.

I thought about doing this to my shelby cobra replica, only i considered rubbing the decals with gasoline to get a faded, yellowed, cracked look.
Instant Patina LOL.
