Not sure, wrap I would expect.. No more difficult to clean than a shiney one I guess?

I like it!

Matt is a pain though, you can't use polish on it, or some shampoos

Looks good to me but why's the belt line, door handles, filler cap & light surrounds not black ? That'll look even better

I saw one of these the other week near the river at Twickenham.

I think it looks ok, a bit odd though, at least you wont see swirls in the paint!

Definately a Matt black wrap, the handles and the filler cap would have been a complete git which is probably why they aren't wrapped... I guess the belt line was just left to tie in with the other chrome bits? I've just wrapped a range rover sport in Matt black it's a very popular look at the moment!

How much would a full wrap like this cost?

About £950, its quite an expensive luxury, due to the price of the material and the time but cheaper than a blowover respray and the
advantage is it actually protects the original paintwork so the car can be returned to factory paintwork!
