What size wheels do you have on your car? Hard to see on your pics. Looking at a pre-facelift JCW same colour as yours (Apr 18 reg) that has 18" wheels and wondering what the ride is like?
Shame its proved a problem for you as the colour match does look good. I've never tried adding vinyl myself either but might get some of these and give it a go. Might not be until the autumn though as I've got my de-chroming and UJ tail lights to fit first.Right! I made a pigs ear of putting the stripes on There were no instructions with the product so I went for a 'dry' application, that turned out to be full of trapped air, small 'bubbles' which I tried to repair by pricking them with a pin.
So for the larger piece I decided to go wet, absolute disaster it was, in the bin it went. I wasted my money again! I'm hopeless at putting vinyl on a car, totally hopeless, never again.
Anyway I've taken a pic of the one wee little bit I managed with 'pierced bubbles' the JCW red looks good right enough, but that'll be ripped off as it looks awful. The car won't ever have stripes now, I move on.

If my missus got wind of my stupidity regards this car and bonnet stripes she'd kill me.
