I wonder if someone could tell me if the carbon vylin wrap on roof and back is original. Thanks

Hi. Yes, gloss black roof on the Collection, plus the red instrument cowl , neither of which were ever available on the standard models. Some other models had the door pulls but without the red inserts.

This is a close up of the vynil which is also on the roof. This has to go. Gloss black would be far nicer. Thanks for your replies.

Looks like a wrap I think they are easy to take off but someone with the knowledge will be along soon.

The c/f vinyl isn't standard, but leave it.  It will protect whatever paint is under there.

I like the CF boot lid.  But as Ruyoko says,  a hairdryer, a strong but soft tipped plastic spatchula type instrument and patience will help get it off.  There might be some adhesive residue left, but some elbow grease will get that off.  I've done it for a few work vans.

thanks for that. I am still in two minds as I think it may give the car a bit more of a bat girl looks. Any adive on what products to clean the vynil with?

I think a high quality, non abrasive car shampoo as you use for the rest of the car should be fine if you're leaving it on. Just be careful at the edges when using any tools or pressure washes as you dont want to start lifting the wrap prematurely.

If you're taking it off and want to remove any residue, a gentle application of t-cut should help shift it.
