Question Neffy wrap vs 3M Di-Noc for interior wrap ?

I'm looking to wrap my aluminium interior to recreate the look of CF. Couple of years ago Neffy Wrap was the bomb but now people seem to use more and more Di-Noc for the same application. Wich one would you recommend.

I'm leaning more toward Neffy Wrap because it recreate more accurately the DRY carbon fiber looks. Anyone have recommendation. Basically Carbon Fiber Fabric or Carbon Fiber Vynil ?

Neffywrap.com (Carbon Fiber Fabric)

Pros :
Recreate more accurately DRY carbon fiber look
Look a lot more easy to work with
Less expensive (2 yard + cutter + adhesive + shipping to canada : 85$)

Cons :
Must use separate adhesive
Removing will leave a residue that will have to be washed off

3M Di-NOC (Carbon FIber Vynil)

Pros :
Won't leave any residue when removed
Adhesive Backing

Cons :
Harder to work with
More expensive

Any help ?

Di-Noc is the old 3m stuff. Look into 3m 1080 Scotchprint. That's what everyone is using now a days. Never heard of Neffy.

Just get the 3M 1080 Scotchprint. It's the automotive version of DiNoc. DiNoc was never meant for automotive applications, it was for architectural. That's why it was hard to stretch, it was designed for flat surfaces. The 1080 is incredibly easy to use and it conforms very easily.

The Neffy stuff is the exact same thing as posted by Sheedi but I think they have been arround longer (in 2k9 when I had my civic they were the bomb)

The fabric is not self adhesive. You need a spraycan of glue as well. Only the vinyl is self-adhesive but people say fabric looks better.

I'd go with 1080. That's what most of the guys here use for its ease of use and look.
