    Looks incredible. Were there any issues or delays related to the carbon wheels?

    Yes, the car would have been 2 or 3 months earlier without them. It doesn't matter, she's here now!

    On the Speciale, 5 years ago, I only did the front and she looks it now. The Pista will be done fully, top to bottom, bumper to diffuser, with Xpel and ceramic coating.

    Not sure if it's applied at the factory, normally a kit is provided with the car which is fitted locally by the dealer........anyways that's how it used to be unless it's changed. Plus factory PPF is no where near as comprehensive as a full wrap. I would investigate that further before jumping in.

    If you use a proper installer with the right (sheet cutting equipment), they don't remove a single panel anymore. All sheets are pre-cut based on information provided by the manufacturers. The result thereof will probably be better (because it covers the entire car) than the one straight from the factory and a lot cheaper as well.

    I had all my cars wrapt entirely without having one single part removed. You just need a pro who doesn't use pre cut wraps so even the edges of the parts on the car will be protected. If you order the factory kit, your dealer will receive a little package with a not-that-high quality pre cut foil inside. The dealer then has to call any wrapper to do the work on your car locally.

    Also should have mine in a few weeks provided there are no issues at the ports due to govt shutdown (US). Fingers, toes, eyeballs crossed.

    Can't go wrong with the launch spec (I was also very tempted). Nice to see another car roll off with carbon wheels.
