I think I paid about €80 which is a steal cause I've heard of others spending a lot more. And the guy who did mine spend 2-3 hours doing it. I was really pleased with the result! I also gave the arches a good clean, polish and sealant before the wrap went on! The only niggle he had was wrapping the mirrors. They were a little tricky and he had to make 3 attempts before he was happy with the end result. I was lucky that this guy was particular about his work and he wouldn't let me leave until he was happy with the transformation.

My wing mirrors cost me around £120. My wrapper dismantled them and wrapped them and then put them all back together again which ensured no seams / tucks. My wrapper also uses a cutting tape which means he doesn't cut on the car / item. The tape cuts from the inside out. It took him 3 hours per wing mirror in total.

When I double checked it was £120 for the roof bars and £40 each for the wing mirrors... Looking to get it done next week, it's a company called wrap monkey in Sunderland.

He won't be taking the mirrors apart then for £40.

It was the time taken to do each mirror which increased the price BUT it ensured a seamless finish.

£40 each so £80 for both wing mirrors, I will ask him how he does them tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up though

Tried to drop car off today but the lad had booked a Range Rover in and said he hadn't seen my email booking, I have to wait a couple of weeks now as I'm going on hols.. He did say that the wing mirrors would have to be done in 3 pieces..
