Default Pics of my new Roof Vinyl Wrap Black Gloss IS250 F Sport

Now I'm thinking of black carbon fiber wrapping on the front bumper lip. What do you guys think?

Carbon fiber wrap is beyond tacky, so I would leave it alone.

Looks great! How much did this cost? Did they remove the shark fin? And no to the CF lip...

Sounds like a good price, I'm getting mine done soon too. It's probably just me, but I hate carbon fiber. It just looks weird. That's why I'm still waiting for non-CF rear diffuser and lip...

Thanks. The Carbon Fiber's grooves matches the f sport's grill that's why I think it would look good. Like the black gloss vinyl I got done, it matches the moon roof and the tints that I have. But I'm basing it on my so called "creative imagination" Lol!

I'd probably save the CF look on an actual lip addition. I think it's weird wrapping part of the bumper.

FYI - That black gloss CF wrap will not do well on the outside of the car, it will take on water vapor. It's great for interior wrapping though. roof wrap looks great!

Carbon fiber is a material used in specific areas because of its rigidity and its light weight. When used on a regular car, like sticking a carbon fiber hood on a civic, it looks tacky. But in the instance of the hood, at least it is doing something. Sticking fake carbon fiber on your car is even worse, because it isn't even carbon fiber.
If you want carbon fiber on the car, buy carbon fiber.

That looks nice! Is that a gloss cf or just the regular one? I contacted the shop and said they can't put the gloss cf but just the regular cf or the gloss black vinyl. The shop said it will look great on gloss black vinyl. So I'm confused. Lol!

Impressive Wrap of El Monte. They do a good job, it was fast and a lot cheaper than the other shops. The first shop I contacted was in Cerritos and quoted me for $295 while Impressive Wrap quoted me for only $220. I saved a lot!
