I've used Plastidip in the past, wrapping is definitely better. It lasts longer and looks better imo.

I was looking at changing the chrome lettering on my Macan for black but after being quoted £450 by my local OPC I looked for another option.

I ended up using PlastiDip and it worked really well.

Watch the following video to see the process

I'm going to use this method to change the roof rails from aluminium to black. Good Call!

Hi Cinders, This is one I made earlier!........... just gives you an idea what your Macan will look like with black trim rather than chrome. Mine already had the black window trim/roof rails I just had the wheels resprayed Satin Black

I'm on my third (or is it fourth) set of chrome black tail pipes as they keep corroding.

Had a similar problem on my previous RS4 and when it was out of warranty I bought high-temp gloss black aerosol from Halfords and the job was as good as the OEM exhaust.

Tempted to do the same on my GTS as the pipes have gone again and the dealer said they won't do any more under warranty
