    What it look like in person? Is it what you expected?
    Its better than I expected, it looks ace, really does look good. The vinyl finish looks like paint even close up, just not to the touch ofc.

    I will clean it and take some better pics over the weekend to try and show it off....

    I bought the black optic grill when I bought the car, avatar pic is out of date... I think the previous owner blacked the chrome window surrounds

    Do they have to remove any parts to cover them i.e the bumpers - is the vinyl folded around the edges? or is it done whilst everything is fitted to the car?
    they take the badges and number plates off, the rest is done while on the car I beleive. It is round the edges, comes with a 3 year warranty, provided you follow the care guide

    I honestly can't recommend totally dynamics enough, Lee is a top bloke, and you honestly get the impression they know what you are looking to achieve

    One thing I have noticed, apart from how awesome it looks, is that the wheels look smaller than they did - I had the same with my S3 in white, it had the effect of making the wheels look smaller - Must be a white thing!

    Damn! That came out beautifully!!! Your results have pretty much done it for me.... Roll on summer

    Maybe you missed my question in all the excitement... but do you know if they have any vinyl that would match your mirrors, with the alu/metal effect? Would like to give that outfit a couple small jobs (roof rails, grill surround).

    Enjoy mate.... I take it you are driving that beast around town right now

    Got to say I was not sure about this when I first read this thread, thought maybe you had gone nuts Klauster, but got to say it looks superb. If you where to want to take the vinyl off would it leave any residue etc??

    Good Work !!

    im sure they could, they are able to replicate most colours, while I was picking my car up, someone was getting a carbon effect roof done on a BMW.

    when I'm fed up of the white thing, I can have it all removed in 2 hours, only issues are if the car had bad stone chips or rust (which it didnt) as the paint can come off when removing. Other than that, it actually protects my original bodywork, and won't leave any marks if i get it removed before 5 years

    my advice would be, stay clear of racoon, have heard a few horror stories, I used totally dynamic, its franchised so i can only speak for the Leeds/Bradford guys, but they are excellent

    Looks really good Nick! How far do they go with the vinyl, can you still see that it's a black car when you open the door and see the surrounds?

    For an additional charge they can do all the door surrounds etc.. but I wasn't fussed. You can tell its a black car underneath when u open the door, but thats about it.

    It deffo works, have had comments at the supermarket and filling up with fuel about how good it looks and how no one seen a white one before

    Has made it feel completely new and special all over again... i know that sounds daft but I really like it

    The only thing that's been putting me off that matt black is the sprint blue surrounds. Might be time for a change too :D

    White with black optics is sweet. How long till the wheels and mirrors are a little darker? (It's a slippery slope once you start...)

    Well i haven't been online for a little while so i've missed the progress in this thread since i first posted.... Looks brilliant, you must be very happy mate.

    I honestly think this could be the way forward. For instance i would love a white M3 but in a few years time depreciation will suffer if the white car thing dies.
    Instead i'm seriously thinking going for safe old black or grey and having it vinyl wrapped matt white. It's only 800 and just peels right off if the colour goes out of fashion.

    Awesome product!

    I have one question actually.... How does the vinyl stand up to scratching??
    Do you get surface swirls or tears easily??

    Because if you do i'm guessing you're fooked. There's no t-cutting there!

    you get a care guide, I can't comment on its wear but the warranty is 3 years, and if u do get an issue, each panel can be re-done, as its not just one piece.

    Wow! It looks super in white klauster. Really accentuates the lines and detail in the bodywork!

    I look forward to seeing the dark alloys/mirrors.
