    CF wrap looks ace but I think it goes better as a kinda stealth edition to a dark coloured car. If I was doing a white car I'd probably go gloss black.

    What sort of white are you going for? Flat colour or pearl?

    Limitless choice of colours and removeable when you sell?

    (Get your Daughter to Google the options!!)

    There's a vinyl vendow on the Forum whose site shows lots of options?
    i never thought of that i will get the little un to have a look for me lol
