    Pretty much anything can be wrapped with a heat gun and a lot of swearing

    Really? I couldn't work out what it was, I thought it was the line that runs under the door handle.

    what about the carbon wrapped kidney grills? rear defusers, many of the members have done that on here and seems to look good! they also carbon wrap the clubsport skirts and lip spoilers, in your honest opionions do you thinks that carbon wrapping exterior bits is chavvy then?
    i thought it may look quite good as its nearly black like the m sport shadow line.

    I think carbon wrapping the shadowline trim would look awful.. very tacky.

    Only exterior things i've ever seen look good carbon wrapped are wing mirrors and diffusers in bumpers.
