If you want it to look OEM then you will have to bite the bullet and go with factory side blades. If you can live with aftermarket quality then there are several options. From my experience, it’s possible to find used Audi pieces for just a little more than new aftermarket ones so I opted for OEM every time. Now, if you’re looking to wrap it in carbon fiber vinyl then you will not be able to get a close match to real carbon fiber (OEM or aftermarket), regardless of the quality of the film. You simply can’t replicate the luster and depth of real carbon with a vinyl wrap.

Are you talking about wrapping with vinyl or real CF wrap? My advice is not to use vinyl. I have not see one that looks like real CF.

If you want to wrap your part with real FC fabric, the process is fairly simple but very time consuming. Attaching the CF to the part is simple and quick. After that, however, you'll have to apply a coat of raisin, wait for it to dry (could be as long as a day), and sand. Then repeat the whole process 4-6 times until all gaps are filled.

I like doing handy-work, but even for me, it is a boring thing to do...

Laying the weave perfectly requires some skill as well.
