    Hi all

    Anyone know a company that sells the kit and more importantly that fits properly

    Looking for gloss black ....
    Grill
    Headlights
    Rear lights

    F54 clubman

    Belt line is easy I have some gloss black vinyl already

    Can it all be done in vinyl?
    Anyone done it?
    Whatís the life span etc or would I be better of just buying abs moulded stuff

    Many thanks

    Using vinyl is no bother at all.
    I had the headlight rings wrapped on GP1499 way back in August 2012 and they still look as good as new.
    Yeah, it would be a tad fiddly to do it yourself but the end result would last for years.
