    Vinyl Wrapped A3 anyone?

    Does anyone on here have an A3 that is vinyl wrapped in matte / satin black.

    Saw an M3 done yesterday and thinking i might get it done.

    Ideally add pictures, price and location.

    Im based in brum so looking for some good quality bargains round here ;]

    Cheers

    If I remember correctly there's a photo of one in the FAQ's section. I'm not sure if it's wrapped or painted though.

    Looks very nice

    How much is it?

    How long does it last?

    Is it easily scratched off?

    I have to say that matte black vinyl wrap looks awesome, but it's notoriously hard to keep looking that way as it picks up scratches very easily. Vinyl wraps are supposed to last at least 7 years, keeping your paint work in perfect condition underneath. It costs around 1500.00 GBP for a full wrap and if you want things like your door shuts done etc. it can cost around an extra 300.00 GBP.

    Its an S3 grill, you would need an S3 bumper to be able to fit it, which means the whole S3 front end!

    Can't believe I never noticed that's a normal s3 grill, especially as I've got an s3 with the same grill..., only difference is my grill is grey behind the number plate

    Looks totally different, has this one been painted / wrapped or is there different s3 grills?

    Think they did a great job on the wrap. I dont know the guy but he lives local and i always see the car driving about.

    If he had gone for MY11 rears....Toned down the tinted windows and went lighter on the lamin x he was onto a winner
