Is anyone vinyl wrapping their MK7 trim?

Thinking about going matte blue on my GTI, but will probably wait until I get tired of pure white first

Happened to stumble across this. I'd probably go a couple shades lighter, but definitely the look I've been wanting

Interior trim is what I mean.

The amount of vinyl used to wrap a car costs more than one thinks, even more so if you go with a unique color or finish. If you want a good wrap job done including door jams and other areas to make it look complete like a paint job it's easy to see how it can costs 3k. The time involved in wrapping a car is high too. My friend owns a shop that does this a the margins for profit are actually pretty small even after charging 2-3k for a wrap.

God people go way off topic in here... I was curious about doing an interior wrap as well.
It seems to be quiet difficult especially with the side door lighting.
I don't really want to do carbon fiber because everyone does that, yet I did find a nice dark wood one I loved

I did a gold wrap. I ended up running out of wrap before i could finish the trim above the glove box and the trim on the doors. If you do end up doing a wrap be careful with the trim on the door cards i do believe not 100% sure they are plastic welded in place. You have to access them from the back of the door card, i pried part of mine back with a trim tool and broke the clips after that i was too scared to try prying the rest and see what would happen. However all the other trim is really easy to get off. Also imo don't buy cheap wrap i did and noticed it really doesn't want to "work" with you, if you can see there are a few areas that bubbled up and just wouldn't lay flat no matter what i tried.
