No offense but his location gave him away. Orange matte, lime matte or black matte? Seriously? Since when is Ricky Martin a car designer?

I would suggest buying more aggressive side-skirts and rear-bumper first.

who cares if you want to do something different, that doesn't absolve you of all sin, matte black maybe but if your car is white just leave it like that, it's a nice colour.

if youre gonna leave it like that mod wise, go with regular matte black.
matte orange and green require some aggressive lines to look right.

Haha that facelift coupe is vinyl wrapped on top. Looks terrible, reminds me of a whale. Not my inspiration at all. If I do wrap my car it's only goin to be for a year or so, the materials are free and I will be doing it myself. I figure I might as well take advantage of the free material and change it up for a summer or two.

I think that's awesome. I would absolutely wrap my car if I had a deal like that. How difficult is removal? Just peeling it off sounds too easy. Do you have any experience applying or removing them?
