I originally saw this Coupe in early 2009 on Bimmerforums. Putting together this post, I was surprised to find quite a few pictures of this crazy Coupe. It is a 1999 Estoril Blue over Black M Coupe that the owner had wrapped in this bizarre oriental rug printed vinyl. While you’ll never find my Coupe with anything this wild done to it, I can appreciate a job well done on this Coupe. The pattern lines up along the seems, and doesn’t appear to have been stretched to fit the curves, but designed with them in mind. The first photos of this wrap started to show up in January, 2009, with the most recent photo I found taken in March, 2010. To be honest, I’m surprised the owner has been able to tolerate the wrap for that long.

    Don’t like at all. It confuses the eye’s ability to discern lines and planes in the same way manufacturers use disruption patterns on test cars.
