I remember a couple of years ago when it was really bad, I had to pressure wash the car 3 days in a row. PITA!

Yeah I know what you mean, It's super stretchy. The 3M stuff is the best, but it's 2 -3 x more expensive than the cheaper ebay stuff. You do have to be careful not to over stretch the vinyl though as it will shrink over time, meaning you'll have to re do it

Workshops will charge you a lot! I enquired about having my wing mirrors done and they wanted anything from £80-£110. So I thought I'll give it a go myself and it's really easy.

Just heat the vinyl and place it where you want. Squeegie the bubbles out and cut with a blade.

 

Here's some pics:

I did also play around with silver, but ultimately preferred the black

That's the joy, you can buy a big roll for <£20 and if you mess it up or don't like it, just peel it off and start again

If you've not told them about the camera and bulbs then why are you worried about the wind deflectors? They're far less of a modification than the other two.
