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.

Must be very expensive to install !! Cutting around the edges where you cant take off parts must also be perfect otherwise it'll look cheap. Not bad idea though, can it be done fast enough to do if I wanted to heist a bank and change the color of my getaway car!!! LOL
That is awesome!! Any idea on prices out of total curiosity?
That is a cool idea, but I bet it is expensive. Might be cheaper than a good repaint though?
Cheaper than taking a hit on the trade value too....
