I don't want to, I think you are over reacting a little.

It will look shiny as shit and the fabric is strong, why would it tear unless you try to scratch it with screwdriver? You can do epoxy, but good luck with applying many coats, trying to polish it out. It's not going to match my matte cloth interior either. And there is like 100 guys on this site who all did the wrap without epoxy. ...

oh, i used the wet carbon look from EAS trim as idea... dunno, I think it's fine the way it is. :P

I think that everyone should just be a bt aware of how it goes and then decide how they like it. I know that Audi does use ///// this pattern non stop on all sides because their CF pieces meet on door-dash (at least on some models I saw). Could be different in BMW.
