159 carbon fibre wrap

I've got a black 159 and I'm considering having the wing mirrors wrapped in a carbon fibre wrap. I've got the anthracite Ti wheels and I think the grey of the carbon fibre would look good with these. Also, I'm considering having the door handles done the same. I've never liked how they're silver and the wheels are anth, they just don't match. The silver handles look great with wheels of the same or similar colour, but with anth wheels they don't look right in my opinion.

What are people's thoughts? Also can anyone recommend a place that does wrapping near Crawley, W.Sussex.

Any pics of similar mods would be much appreciated so I can have an idea what it'd look like.

Personally I don't think the mirrors will look too bad, but I'm not sure about the door handles... I like how they look standard.
Post some pics if and when you get it done...

hear a lot of stories of the wraps not lasting very long, as mentioned in other threads the dipping method that was on wheeler dealers looked much better:

I had a full wrap done on my 159 last year

Although I had no major problems, I didnt like the unsightly holes from stone chips, nor did I like the arches continuously peeling.

However, small bits like door handles and mirrors should look good
