Jeff, header wrap does just the opposite as the foil wrap. Header wrap is designed to keep heat in. Foil wrap is designed to reflect heat away.

Either way you go, it's all insulation.

You know they make a dinan tube style intake that uses a silicone tube as the inake tube right?

Not too bad.

How much do you think it would be to buy a factory color from Bugatti

Seeing as the list price for the car that has the color is like 2.5mil

Oh it's worth it to me. I don't care if the whole thing would end up to be like 10k and I am being honest. I want something unique, I plan on taking an E46 M to the grave with me.

What about vinyl wrapping? I'm sure you've considered it, but it would be less expensive than painting, and you would be able to switch up colors on a whim.

FWIW.

Depends if you're changing colors because then they have to paint inside the engine bay, door jams, trunk, parts or interior.

I got a quote of 3-4k for Alpine white and 7-8k for GT3RS Orange back when I wanted to do it.

Vinyl wrap is where its at. Wrap Factory quoted me -4k for a full GT3RS flat orage wrap. The good thing about vinyl is if you get a scratch you just replace that section. Plus it keeps the paint underneeth in perfect condition.

+1 to errthing.

If you could teach yourself how to lay the vinyl it would be soooooo easy and cost effective. There are rolls of 3M Di-Noc (supposedly one of the best) on ebay for 350ish. I mean come on! That's insanely cheap if you could do the labor yourself, plus you'd get to switch colors every few months.

I might have to look into a big roll of matte grey/matte red. I did my window trim myself and it was incredibly easy once you get the hang of it.

I did my roof and it was a pain in the arse. There are so many angles and curves on a car. It would be worth trying though, money savings would be huge. I just hate with vinyl when you open the doors you will see the change.
