no it not, arkym has longer fins plus a middle fin, also the sides don't protrude downward beyond the bumper, that's a 3d design diffuser.

Ok what the hell does "wrap"mean? Did you not aftermarket paint the car but instead apply some sort of colored film to the car?

Please don't tell me to search. I
Use the iPhone app and there is no search feature so you can stop.

Ok I get it now, but don't see the point. Is it a cost saving measure over getting the vehicle repainted? Trying to grasp why someone would do this.

1. much cheaper than painting
2. maintenance free (no swirls, no need to buff)
3. protects your original paint
4. you can remove it if/when you get tired of it

No need to harm OEM paint. And when you get tired, just take it out and enjoy your oem color.

Hey can you post a picture of how the door frame of the car looks. You know the part on top of the side skirt. I've seen wrapped cars but never with the door open to see how it looks.

Very nice blue, is this hexis or 3m? I just had my car wrapped matte blue and have created a couple of threads, mine seems to be a shade darker than yours. Mine is Hexis. Good job!
