How real does the carbon vinyl look... If it looks cheesy then no but if it looks good then go for it by all means

Does wrapping damage the underlying paint at all or is it easy to return to stock?

IMHO you are best off wrapping the car in frozen grey and the roof in matte black.

CF Vinyl is poser-ish and to be honest with you, the contrast of matte black will match tinted windows and other black accents of the car better and will therefore look nicer.

I would frozen grey the entire car and not do a different roof color.. Just keep it consistent.
