I have a friend who owns a sign shop that also does vinyl vehicle graphics and wraps. They have some stock that is a pretty good rendition of laid up carbon fiber. I've seen several posts where people have painted their bumpers black and I like the look over the stock grey color. I'm considering doing the bumpers and the upper grille surround with the carbon fiber wrap instead of paint. It's a freebe, so that isn't an issue. I'm just wondering if it's going to look OK... What do you think? I stole a photo from a post and shopped the front to get an idea of what it might look like:

+++ for trying something new. Keep it clean and it should last. As for road rash, don't follow so close.

you will probably need to have the bumpers painted first. the wrap likely wont stick to the factory gray textured panels well. unless they have some magic solution for it, i dont think it will hold up. just what i have heard from tinter/wrappers that i know.
