Full car wraps start at $2k, and go up, depending on the car.

Carbon Fiber Roofs:
False and mis-leading ^ those are not carbon fiber roofs - those are vanity stickers. I dig the gloss vinyl though. Have you removed any vinyl roofs after a year or two of being on?? Seriously I'm really interested in this.

I thought restating that it was vinyl again was redundant, considering that this entire thread and those threads, are relating/discussing it(vinyl).

I've removed graphics off of my own car after 3-4 years even, without any problems.

Don, what I'm worried about is there's going to be some kind of residue left over that's going to be a PITA to remove. If you could, sometime in the future, get pictures of vinyl that you have removed - it would be great to see so I could have more confidence in this. Gloss black roof, do want. Yes, I will suspect you of putting it on for a week and then pulling it off - so hopefully you can clear that as well. Anyhow, best of luck - I see business is booming.

That 2nd to last part didn't make sense. Put it on a week and then take it off the following week? I don't pull vinyl off that often. If there is any residue left, 15-30 mins (depending on how much there is) will clean everything off. It's similar to removing laminx, clear bra, or anything else that has a adhesive backing to it.

The 2nd part was in reference to long-term bonding, which is why certain companies invest in machines that accelerate this process in controlled environments (more or so for durability but in this case you're putting an adhesive on top of a soft "protection" compound). Do you have any information behind the adhesive?

It's really a non-issue, and I have not experienced any negative affects from long term use/removal.

Guess I must have missed this thread when I was looking for someone to wrap my interiors and so forth.

PM me price and info for CF vinyl roof wrap for a hardtop M3.

Thanks

I actually wrapped the roof and middle section of the spoiler on a white 997 GT3 that was bought from your dealership just the day before. That was a first for me. I've had week old cars that I've done work/wraps on, but never a car that was bought less than 24hrs ago, haha.
