    Context of poll?

    Black saves you a grand to help pay for the wrap.

    Trying to decide which one looks better with the stealth. Ordering my M3 this week and I like the MSM more unwrapped but like you said, I could get the black and have $1k to put towards the wrap.

    If you're gonna wrap no reason to waste money on paint imo

    It's a clear wrap so you'll see the paint underneath

    I went through this agonizing decision process almost a year ago as well. :)

    This was my choice:

    Three factors:

    1.) Stealth fighter look is black.
    2.) Save 1K.
    3.) More predictable overall look when combining chrome delete and black wheels.

    Thanks, I hope I was helpful and you will be happy with the results of your choice.

    I made 3 decisions in addition that were not recommended by the PPF installer but I did anyway. You might change it or do the same depending on your tastes.

    1.) Matte for chrome delete versus satin. I wanted contrast versus "body match".
    2.) Matte for wheels versus satin. Same as above, I wanted some color contrasts.
    3.) I kept the Tesla badges as Chrome. Most "delete it" along with the rest of the car but I think the "Chrome T" is Tesla "iconic". Some go red which matches the calipers but I was satisfied with matching the head/taillights by going silver.

    Looks fantastic. I personally like the body matched handles but like the rest of the contrast. How much did just the full stealth wrap cost you?
