So I have a lovely black 2011 Cayenne, with all the toys on the inside. Having bought it second hand, it doesn't have the body coloured wheel arches/ skirts etc..

I'm wondering if I can have the plastic trims on the wheel arches / lower side skirts and bumpers painted to body colour or "wrapped" to match body colour.

Any idea which is the best solution and any reservations on doing so?

Thanks! thumbsup

There is no way that you will get a colour match if you wrap a bodykit, the only way is to paint the additional parts Hand

Yes get them all painted it will look much better, make sure you use a good bodyshop avoid the back street places they are cheap for a reason Thumb Grin
