I talked to him. And actually it's pretty reasonable all things considered.

It is covered in clear coat so it can be clay barred, ceramic coated, waxed etc. But it can easily be peeled off with zero damage to the paint. Very intriguing.

Yep. This car was Black before, believe it or not.
No paint sanding whatsoever.
Here's additional photos during process...

Just some info on my X5’s Autoflex incase anyone is curious on the details behind liquid spray wraps (not plastidip).
Its relatively inexpensive, compared to a good vinyl wrap. I was quoted between $5k and $6k for a comparable orange, with Autoflex I was able to color match BMW’s Fire Orange color and it ran me $3500 and only 2 days to do. While the concept of liquid application is the same as Plastidip, its not the same product at all. Its a 4 stage process, tack coat, 2 base coat (in my case it was avalanche grey) because I was going over black factory color - then the 2 color coats, followed by Autoflex 2k OEM style clear coat. And yes it can be cut/buffed/polished/waxed/ceramic coated and its gas spill safe. You can also use a car wash as it self heals minor swirls in the sun. Lasts 6+ years and is 100% peel-able. Even feels like real paint. Its basically removable paint instead of a vinyl wrap. Most people cant tell its not factory. Installation requires no removing of any trim, bumpers, panels, lights etc like you have to do on vinyl. I’m an orange fanatic so all my cars have been orange and it may not be everyones cup of tea but with Autoflex you can literally make any color you can think of from solids, metallics and “frozen” mattes. Its truly the next level of wrapping and after 4 cars I’m still impressed every time I pick up my car from being done. I also did my wheels and calipers in Autoflex as well since its extremely durable and heat resistant.

Thanks for the shout out Marcus!!

Absolutely! Your ride is unique and gorgeous IMO.
Were the wheels and calipers also done in this method?

Amazing "paint" job! Congrats. Can this be done with frozen/matte colors? I have BSM on my X6m and wanna convert to frozen mbb.

how durable is this? Better than typical wrap and perhaps someplace in between the wrap and ppf?

It works on M2s too!

It's Autoflex in the U.S., Ngenco in Europe.
