I only wrapped a few pieces of my car, such as spoiler, front grille, mirror covers and fee interior bits with carbon wrap. What are you thinking of getting done mate?

Well I was thinking a full body wrap-matt black like the focus RS500. Ive seen another mk 6 fez with it done and it looks well nice. With my body kit on the car, mine would look even better

The proper ones are vinyl mate so the are ok to keep clean but there are some dodgy brands out there that fade and things so make sure to get a goo brand

Guys with vinyl wraps you can't use harsh chemicals or pressure washers as when the vinyl is on its been stretched over all the lumpy bumpy bits to fit onto the panels I would recommend a good old bucket and sponge or a wee spray of Avery graphics surface cleaner
