Re: Paint Back of i3 Black?

I've been doing some searching and found (on this forum) a reference saying that the BMW paint code is "668 Jet Black".

Re: Paint Back of i3 Black?

Nice! Exactly the same color and wheels as mine. I like it! Now to get a quote and see what it will cost. Small area, but as was point out, may need special "flexible" paint so may drive the price up.

Re: Paint Back of i3 Black?

Interesting note about flexibility in the paint. I'll be sure to mention that when I get a quote.

As for color, I'm guessing that a body shop can look that up.

Re: Paint Back of i3 Black?

Yeah, vinyl wrap is definitely an option. Turns out that getting a high gloss shine with Plasti Dip is problematic. But the more I look at the pics the more I am convinced that black is the way to go. Think I will get a quote for having it painted. But now I'm thinking that black wheels would comple...

Re: Paint Back of i3 Black?

Hmmm... I just did a bit of (crude) Photoshop and changed the white to black on a pic of the i3. I think I like it! I was concerned that it might make the back look taller and skinnier but I think it actually has the opposite effect. I would post the pic but I don't see a way to do that on this foru...

Paint Back of i3 Black?

My i3 is white with the black hood, roof, and hatch, with a white section on the back just below the black hatch. Standard i3 2 tone color arrangement. The white beneath the black hatch just looks odd to me and I am wondering it if would look better if I had that section painted black. But then I wo...

Re: How is your battery holding up?

That's quite a step up, from an i3 to a Model S Tesla! I drove a Model S a few months back and have been trying ever since to convince my wife to sell her 535i xDrive and my i3 and buy one (or a Model Y), but so far, no luck. Are you keeping or selling the i3? I'm selling the i3. It's kind of sad i...
