Hi guys, I have just received my 3M 1080 Carbon Fiver vinyl to wrap my F34 interior trim. By mistake I think I order a little bit smaller than I should, I bough 1520mm x 500mm .. and I have a question in regards to the weave pattern:

- I can see in forums most of the people wrap putting the vinyl with the weave pattern to the right direction.
- My issue is .. as the vinyl has 50cm width it doesn't cover the big central trim to put the weave pattern on that direction.
- I can wrap all pieces with this vinyl if I wrap them with the weave pattern to the left (the picture of vinyl roll)

My question is: Should be the pattern go to the right direction, like the picture attached from the shift gear? or as far I can wrap all pieces to match the pattern is fine?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance

It's your car, totally up to you. The weave going to the right is OEM style however, so if you prefer that then you should go to the right.
