    Thanks mate, the PPF is almost invisible. You would really need to be looking for it up close to see It

    I have seen it, VVS do it all the time, mine has front PPF, its very good, but the draw of something wacky (that adds the same or near as damn protection) is exciting.

    PPF will discolor, despite what they say though and will yellow over time.

    I follow a local detailing company on Facebook, and they are always posting photos of them applying PPF to brand new high end cars.

    Also older stuff like F40’s etc. Looks like a very good product.

    If you like the red chrome then do it.

    Why ask on here?

    Dont be a people pleaser, do it for yourself.

    This is a piss take to remind us you’ve got a lovely new motor right ? ;)

    Personal POV - you have bought a dream car in its classic colour combination.

    Wrapping it will, in my opinion, detract from that. It’s a thing of beauty as it is.

    Wrapping it chrome will make you look like a dick from Instagram who flogs dodgy Forex schemes to deluded teenagers.

    But we’re all different :)

    Congrats on the Fezza - apart from the engine bay pics in the other thread, have you any other pics of the beast in its entirety?

    My 2p - whilst the red chrome wrap looks awesome and I understand your desire to do something protective yet wacky, I would vote against it and do something that allows the original paint to be on display - its a classy and beautiful car which I think should be displayed in it's original state

    But its your money and your choice, so whatever you do, it should make YOU happy!! :)

    Chrome wrap is cheap tacky and chavvy. And every wrap iv ever seen has horrific orange peel.

    No no and thrice no. You’ve got a stunning motor in the proper colour, don’t ruin it with a tacky looking wrap. It’s similar to putting nasty aftermarket wheels on IMHO.

    I think if it makes you happy do it, you can always take it off.

    Wraps are generally awful. I've not seen one yet that looks good. The quality of the vinyl is miles away from paint, and there's no way you could live with the terrible orange peel effect that a wrap would leave you with. Coupled to that, it's a Ferrari. Don't mess with the colour. Just a decent Xpel PPF or similar over the vulnerable bits. Job done.

    I would just get clear PPF if the goal is protection. I understand everyone has their own taste but personally chrome wrap is just a no no. Maybe another colour then sure.

    I wouldn’t go for chrome personally. Satin would be nice though
