    Recommendations to wrap trim and paint alloys (London) 19th Sep 16 at 6:50 PM
    Hi all,

    I'm picking up my "nearly new" Jaguar KF on Friday and, as with all nearly new cars, you need to compromise compared to ideal spec. As a result, I'm looking at ways to customise the car to make it look as I'd want.

    Here it is:





    The main things that I want to get done are:
    1) Wrapping some of the brushed metal trim in gloss black (two "blades" on lower-front air intake, front-grille surround, side power vents and thin trim on boot)
    2) Getting the "19 alloys painted gloss black

    Does anyone have any recommendations for places in London where I could get these works done at a reasonable cost, in London?
    What would be a reasonable estimate to get this work completed?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    R.

    LOL... This has turned into a pretty weird thread.
    People who equate black wheels to being/looking like a Chav... That says more about you, than it does about anyone else.

    You can get a black pack for new XFs. Can you buy the parts separately?

    I'm not sure you can buy them separately , but I'll ask tomorrow, when I speak to the guy from the dealership. If not, I've been quoted £50 to wrap the trim in black, via a reputable workshop who do this kind of stuff. I'd be hard pressed to find it much cheaper imo.

    Maybe they're neither chavs nor lazy. Maybe, like me, they have many things they'd rather do than wash a car.

    And I'd rather have dirty wheels than black ones.
