So why wrap something so that it's actually heavier (OK maybe only by a few grams but heavier nonetheless) and usually (not always, but more often than no) looks a bit shabby.
Maybe it's just me but my idea of modding is to improve performance/handling and aesthetics are a by-product. I, personally - and I expect to be shot down in flames for this - think that cosmetic mods (Carbon wrap, bodykits, etc) are something of a waste as they make the car into a sheep in wolf's clothing, often just adding weight and hindering performance.
