Saw this on another forum..

BMW owner tapes black car to white




When a BMW 335i owner in Munich became bored with his black coupe, he hired a team to wrap it in white tape. Two days later, he drove home in his refreshed "Alpine White" coupe (with an M3-appearing black roof). No, it's not normal tape. It's a special 3M wrap, and the process is known as "foiling." Apparently, the German military has been using the process (with an olive drab tape) for some time now. Likewise, the process is popular with race teams and taxi companies. Available in countless colors, the tape itself is thick enough to protect the paint from minor chips and nicks, and it can be left adhered to the surface for 3-4 years without damage (!). Adhesion isn't a problem either, as the tape can even withstand an automatic car wash without peeling off. Thanks for the tip Frank.

saw this earlier today on the e90post boards... pretty freaking cool, but I'm not so sure how it would handle extreme temperature changes (i.e. freezing cold, to super humid disgusting heat).

thats how shit like this happens. this hasnt been confirmed but this is either chrome (doubtful), foiling, or this shit called liquid silver paint



either way it is cool but seems to be used more for advertising than changing a car color
