    What do you guys think of this. I personally think it looks great. It gets rid of the plastic look for the nose cone. Looks more sporty too. This is not my car, but a friend's.

    Here is a pic of an S without the matte wrap. See the difference it makes?

    I like it a lot, but the wrinkles in the vinyl along the edge (right side of closeup) would drive me crazy...

    I had mine done recently and they removed the cone before wrapping it. It's perfect - no wrinkles. I used black brushed aluminum. Really better than the stock cheap plastic look IMHO.

    Brushed Aluminum sounds nice. Can you post a pic?

    I talked to the owner about it and he said he is going to get it re-wrapped, this time by removing the nosecone so there will be no wrinkles as the wrap will curl all the way around the back of it.

    I personally like the matte look. If wrapped with a material that was somewhat soft and impact resistant it would probably, or hopefully, no pick up rock chips from the road.
