Wrap mirror caps

I was thinking to do the cheaper alternative to wrap my mirror caps.

In a few Days i am going to the workshop and do this but i have not decided
yet what color.

I would appreciate very much with some suggestions, i Think i have three choices.

1. Gloss black
2. Satin black
3. Carbon fibre

Se Picture how my car look like

In the Picture on the front of my car i have done a red mark and that mean that i also thinking
of wrap this part. But BMW has told me that if you wrap the parking sensors, these will not function any more.
Dont know if that is true or not.


Another crazy thing, maybe to much. Wrap the roof in black. Can that be nice?

Welcome!
Carbon fiber if you plan on adding more carbon fiber elsewhere later on.
If not, satin black is the way to go.

Well done!

I might be looking into carbon fiber layering which will look real for cheap but just simply a thicker layer.

Any other mods planned?
