The material is only decently expensive but the vinyl itself is not like normal vinyl, it's ability to stretch and conform is less than traditional vinyl. Then factor in the many curves and whatnot on the trunk lid of a 2009, it adds up pretty fast once you add installation. Meh if I can I would like an actual CF trunk over a covered one for weight and the nice clear coat that goes down on top of the actual CF. I saw the vinyl in person and while cool, it just doesn't have the same look to it. It is close but...

I don't know maybe I am just picky.
