Personally, I had the whole hood done (Ventureshield) as I didn't want a visible line. The most important parts to cover are: Front bumper, headlights, hood (at least upto the top of the powerdome), front part of fenders, behind the wheels and side skirts.

Also don't forget to clearbra your headlights. Once those get pitted ad yellowed, u can't just replace the lenses. U need to replace the whole thing including hid lamps. That will run a grand per side

My M is Mineral White. My front bumper, headlights, hood, fenders, mirrors, side skirts, CF roof and rear impact area are wrapped in venture shield. You cannot tell it is there, probably the best mod I have. You cannot see it at all, I go to meets on the regular and no one has ever mentioned it and when I tell them they cant believe it and try to touch the car to feel that it is there.

Like mentioned above the installation is the key part.
And OP do your entire hood or you will see the line and IMO that looks terrible.

As others have mentioned, wrap the entire hood. For the past 6 years, over 90% of our installations are full hood coverage points. Doing half or partial defeats the purpose because chipping will occur beyond the partial hood line, which means a respray would be necessary at some point.
