Talking Decided to get the AMG wrapped

Ok after looking for a different colour one and failing it has been easier to get one more of the colour I wanted after finding the car of the right spec car. I know it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea, by a long way, but it has a lot more presence now. It's tough to know how much orange to include and everything else has had to be tinted, lights, glass, de-chromed badges and wing mirrors changed to gloss black to give it the correct 'stance'. Pics don't do it justice but moving on to the interior now with a flat bottomed steering wheel etc so it's an on-going project. I'll post more pics when it's done but I've never seen a Nardo Grey one yet.

The Orange calipers look stunning against the color of the car.

In need of a bigger car otherwise I would love to do a wrap and color combo similar to this.

The result looks great. Would love to see some more pictures and see it in the flesh. Maybe get to see it at one of the SLKWorld meets.

Excellent, looks the business - how will the wrap stand up to wear and tear compared to the paint I wonder - just don't know too much about wrap.

That looks really great!

Was thinking about wrapping the next car I get as I'm most unlikely to get the colour I want with all the other things on my tick list!

A few more images. The car is totally transformed. I was nervous wondering how it was going to come out but now it looks like if you bought it today, it's the spec you'd want. I'll come along to a few meets this year so people can have a look. Totally worth every penny. My neighbour said Jeez, looks like a stealth bomber. He's right.

Makes a huge difference when you get the colour you want.
I decided against wrapping as it was just a bit more expensive to get the paint job and I knew I’d be more likely to destroy it than paint.
It looks fab esp with the orange accents
I love when people personalise the colour.

Not really sure. I like Silkie's colour, but that's non-standard on the R171 or R172 and I don't know how it would look. I don't want silver or black, but that's where I'm most likely to find a car-with-all-the-toys. At least a wrap would let me buy the car with the gizmos and then I colour it exactly what I want - even down to accents and tints.
