Nice job, not many dare satin or mat. I had mine done from day one, from the dealer directly to the cosmetic surgeon. Had it wrapped in dragon fire red. Also had two coats of nano-ceramics added to help with cleaning and scratch resistance. And if one day I sell it, the paint will be immaculate under. I also paid 2500 $ for the job, worth every penny.

What is the life span of your wrap? I know what a regular PPF clear is....but I hear that color wraps have shorter life span and also aren't self healing or as tough as PPF like Xpel or SunTek.....but this is second hand info so not sure how accurate it is.

The only thing I would do is take the wrap off the CF side air scoop. Otherwise, it looks amazing!

The wrap is 3M, I was told that in regular use, winter and summer use in southern Canada it should last easily 5 years, but since I do not put the thru car wash machines and it will never see a winter I should be good for 7-8 years, not counting the additional protection that nano ceramic should add. As for the self healing, possibly in southern USA, not in Canada. I've seen them put the blow torch to it to remove small inperfections as a last step, scary process. Lifespan also greatly depends on the applicator's talent and care, the preparation of the car is key. Look for a certified reseller and installer.

A for the side scoop, I personnally find that this after thought oversize scoop is too much carbon fiber for this small car, a matter of personal taste, I had the exterior covered. The beauty of wrap is that I can uncover the scoop in 5 minutes if ever I feel like it.
