    Liking the tinted lights and bonnet vents. Where did you get them from? I am tempted to get some but not sure whether to colour match or not

    Love the look. I wonder what the roof would look like wrapped in carbon film as an alternative to the edition’s Matt black roof.

    I’m also interested in how it has performed over long-term. Does it scratch easily? Any discolouration? Peeling etc? Personally, I’d be tempted to ceramic coat over the film.

    Love that look too. Sounds like good value for the fit and finish achieved.

    Just an update – the wrap is doing really well…no issues such as peeling. Not done the fog surrounds as been told it wont work. No scratches but then again haven’t bumped into anything (touch wood!)

    Update – its been roughly 1.5 years since the wrap – no issues such as rips etc – however, the colour of the wrap has slightly faded. I think this is normal though as they last about 3 years?

    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Was this a normal carbon finish?  Not gloss matte etc

    Hi norwichrs , can you let me know if the carbon wrap they put on the the black roof strips is ok , did they treat it first or just apply it. I went to a company today and they said it needed to be painted first which I’m not sure about. Also on the front bottom splitter did they remove the textured surface or just cover it. Look forward to your reply and your car looks awesome ,steve
