I would probably go for a 3M 1080 carbon or even an Avery Supreme although both of these options have the satin finish that many people do not want. There are some really nice gloss versions around somewhere or you can print your own :)

Re: Good Carbon Wrapping Vinyl Needed.

that's not an easy mirror to wrap with "carbon" due to the weave in the carbon.
I actually prefer the satin finish to the gloss as any real carbon i have seen hasn't been gloss, to be honest i kinda think gloss carbon looks cheap, but just a personal preference i guess.

wrap sources...
Europoint or William Smith dependannt on the brand you choose.
Avery, Oracal, 3M, Arlon...

Pane
The 3M carbon-fibre is a joy to wrap with. Pre stretch it and it will virtually wrap itself.
These are parts of a Can-am Spyder I wrapped with it 3 years ago.
Very difficult shapes, but it went on like a dream and there have been no failures.
