    IIRC you're talking about £300 for the 6 trims, 4 doors, gear surround & ashtray lid if fitted.

    I have some gloss black 3dr trims available if interested.

    Just incase anyone is still interested screw buying new ones just wrap them at a 10th of the cost and it looks amazing look here:

    Is there much difference in appearance from the above carbon compared to 3m?

    Doesn't look like it, but i think 3M is much easier to apply as it doesn't form air bubbles! But then again its much more expensive.
