Wow. This is really good
Thanks, I’m really impressed too - especially as the whole job was circa £650 inc VAT.

I am still contemplating having the roof panel done in CF and the chrome window surrounds done in black - but I really like as is. Although I will probably get it done to see how good it looks - can always take off again :)

The inset “blades” were body colour to begin with and didn’t look great to me - think they look good now with the glossy carbon which nicely contrasts to the more matte black plastic bumper. Too much would be overkill in my mind.
Honestly, you've just sold me on wrapping mine with those pics! 😍

I did notice you're rocking a Turbo and mine is a 4S, hence my original question. I think with my 4S, I'd have to wrap the entire lower bumper as they differ slightly.

Think I'll wrap my wing mirrors and lower bumper only. I did get the sports package, so might end up wrapping the rear wings at the lower back.

P.s. On the Porsche configurator, they only wrap the top half of the wing mirror in carbon, so what you have done looks right - see example

I don't suppose you know what carbon wrap they used on yours, so I can ask for the same?
Also, how long did the job take?

Have you thought about wrapping any of the interior?

I notice on the configurator you can do the doorsills, inner door panels and along side of the centre console

Agree 100% on the body color blades, not a big fan of that
The CF looks perfect, they did an amazing job
The CF wrap itself is a custom printed CF design by the installer correct?

That’s what I thought they told me. But I started searching online for “glossy 3D carbon fibre wrap” and was amazed at what I found - then the wrapping company website showed something of the same quality, so went with them

Thanks
Would you mind asking them if it was a branded wrap and if so which it was for us USA folks ?

Whilst I patiently await your input from above, I asked my local dealer at Bolton whether he could recommend a wrapper and he informs me that they've had their showroom Taycan customised 'for no other reason than to stand out'. Thought I'd share the pics with you!

Not sure about the blue, personally!
