Carbon Fiber or Black Vinyl Wrapped Roof?

Like the title states I am looking to do a vinyl wrap but I don't know which one. I have a local place that does the CF wrap fro $200 out the door. here is their website. . I don't know how much Black vinyl wrap would cost. Also I was wondering if I did choose to do the roof in CF should also do my side mirrors? I have a DG G with satin black grill and diffuser. What are your thoughts?
here are sample pics the guys sent me of stuff they have done:

The CF wrapping looks pretty good. Do you have any CF parts on your DG coupe now? If you do idk if it would look right becuase the CF molded parts are UV coated and are pretty glossy. The wraps dont have that gloss to them so its start to stand out being matte when other CF parts are glossy.

I have a few CF parts now on my G and due to the gloss and my crazyness about making the ride clean, im going with a UV coated roof cap.

Heres a linky:

Don't cf unless you have cf trunk/hood. I did bluebats black vinyl overlay and it look good but now I have strafe cf trunk so I might be redoing mine. But I would def recommend bat's black vinyl, haven't tried his cf. Did the shop tell you what kind of wrap they use?

No I don't know what kind of CF wrap they use. I haven't been by their shop yet. I was looking at bluebats overlay's. I've heard its easy to install but I couldn't find out how to do it.

Carbon fiber and black vinyl look pretty similar from far away but when you get closer you can tell. There area a few diy threads/links to sites for installs floating around, but it is fairly easy although you should have a friend to help.

I say carbon fiber, unless the black vinyl can be had much cheaper.

thats 3m dinoc...good stuff...

Like someone else said though you need to match it to your other parts....imo hood and trunk need to be done.

with the black vinyl you can get away with just a roof wrap...it will give it a clean classy look just make sure its dark blk and not a smoked tint
