personally, i'm not a fan of CF wraps (either real CF or none )...But, it's our car and you should do whatever makes you happy.

The only color i'd wrap would be flat white!

The CF vinyl cheapens the look of the car.

You've got to be kidding...nobody in their right mind would do that. Everyone would know it was fake and it would not even come close to looking good. With all the folding roof panels it would be difficult and expensive. Why ruin a perfectly nice-looking car?

All carbon fiber?? That would look ridiculous.
I love carbon fiber, but I like to keep it simple and tasteful. It works best as a compliment to your actual color in my opinion. CF Diffuser, spoiler, splitters, and mirror covers. Nothing too outlandish.. just nice, simple and clean.

How about real carbon fiber? It's your car, but I tend to agree with everyone here, a carbon fiber wrap won't look good IMO.
