Main advantages of vinyl over paint.

you can have a perfect finish in gloss /matt , chrome, textured, candy colours, pearlescents, irridecents and sparkle

which otherwise would take a lifetime of spraying and weeks of coats of paint to achieve in just 2 days

it protects the paintwork underneath,

doesn't get stone chips,

but most of all i can change the colour of my car every year

main disadvantages are:

limited life (normally 5-7 years)

lots of cowboys out there not prepping vehicles properly or not sealing edges resulting in poor life of the vinyl!

if i paid 2K for a wrap i would be back as soon as vinyl started peeling and be getting all affected panels rewrapped for free!
