I carbon wrapped mine too as the coating was bubbled just like yours.
It's the easiest part of the trim to wrap, half hour job.

Look for bubble free carbon wrap on eBay.
3M wrap is the best.

Yeah all you need is a heat gun or as I used a hairdryer and does the job perfectly.

I would make a claim on the retailer for selling a product that damaged your car rather than doing the job it was sold for. "It didn't do what it said on the tin" :angry:

This has happened on mine too! Was like it when I got it and haven't got round to doing anythin with it yet. I have a blue-ish interior though, so the black carbon wrap won't really work and I'm not keen on the coloured stuff. The best option I thought of was trying to remove the 'skin' the whole way round and leave the glossy plastic finish underneath.

You can get blue carbon wrap too.
