Teaser: Key ID

Share:

So now that we have our Bimmian E92 M3 showcar, we have two cars with the same style of key.  I got wondering if we can come up with a good way of marking they keys with identifying colors to be able to tell them apart more easily.

So… being bimmian: we got creative with a design that we already engineered: our carbon key covers (http://www.bimmian.com/CKC).  We had some cut in both grey and brown.  (In hindsight, not the nicest colors, but they matched the interior colors of the M3 (grey) and my X5 (tobacco brown). I used the interior colors because the M3 is Jerez black, which isnt much different from the key already, and the X5 is Monaco blue, which is really dark blue, and wouldn’t be visible on the key either.

I tried to apply these to the keys in various ways…. review the below and give me your feedback?

Is this horribly ugly?

Which accent looks best?  Centers? full coverage? Stripes?

Do you have a need for this?

Would you buy this if offered?

Let us know what you think!

Teaser: Matte Carbon Overlay Door Sils Using DecalWerks Carbo-noc

Share:

Loving the look of the DecalWerks Carbo-noc overlay film on the dash ( http://www.bimmian.com/CFF ) applied in a previous blog post, we got wondering where else we could use this fantastic material.

We noticed the door sills were looking a little dull, so …. why not….

So, after some mocking-up and careful application, here it is: Matte Carbon Overlay Door Sils Using DecalWerks Carbo-noc

I think it looks fantastic!!

What do you think?

Should we carry this on the site?

Would you buy one?

What cars should we make this for?

Share your ideas!

Teaser: Carbon Engine Bay Accents

Hey everyone, we got experimental the other day with our new DecalWerks Carbo-noc product.  We were able to hand-fabricate these engine component overlays.  What do you think?

If we made these how do you think they would sell?

Would you buy a set?  For which car?

Thanks for your feedback guys!!!
