Well, not bad for a first timer. But I wouldn't want to drive around with my car with such a low quality wrap. But A for effort though!

The bumber will be re wrapped if the shinkage in the deep areas is what is disturbing you =)

Yes, and the PDC sensors too...
I don't want to sound like a douchebag, it is WAY better than what I could do myself.

I think it looks pretty good. I'm curious why you wanted to wrap it the same color? Just to give it a bit of a matte look?

Easier to wrap, i dont need to wrap the door sills for exaple. And the gaps between some panels will show the original car colour
I mainly wrapped tha car for paint protection. I really hate driving around with a new car just waiting for scratches made by clumsy peapole at supermarkets =) This will not protect from everyting, but at least some..
And costing me only 500$ exluding a lot of time, i feel that its money well spent .

If you wanted paint protection why not just clear wrap?

Then the car would not be satin pearl white... That was a very nice bonus. I would not have spent the time just on a clear film.
