I would like to do my Brake Duct Vent Covers in body color, or one of the accent colors I will be using on my roof graphic. (red for example). The one vinyl guy I spoke with said those would have to be painted. But I see that you can buy replacement pieces in chrome for about $80. I'm guessing they just snap out/in. So has anyone bought the chrome covers and had them wrapped? I'd prefer that as I think it will be hard to match the vinyl colors I'm using with paint so would prefer to stick with the same thing all around to avoid color mismatches.

Or, does anyone know if MINI is selling replacement covers that I could have done and then snap in? I see sets online but they don't specify what year they are for. I'm guessing the F series vents are different than the R series.

Vinyl wrapping is not difficult, but does require a bit of time to do it right. If you have a heat gun any curvature or edging can be wrapped. Just YouTube it and you should find pointers and tips.

Any real competent vinyl wrapping expert should be able to do it

What kind of vinyl "guy" did you speak to? Was he a moonlighter?
Check with a professional shop who specializes in that sort of thing
