This "paint" you speak of, is it some sort of shiny liquid matte wrap that can be sprayed on? Please aware me on this "paint"

Lol sorry dude. You know I dig your car though. The thing is though, I'd be more inclined to wrap a daily driver like yours than a 400k car that sees 600kms a year. Supercars paint jobs are part of a complete work of rolling art. I just don't think you can improve on that. Either way I digress, this isn't the "cars westopher likes" thread so I'm not looking to insult anyones tastes. Just throw my 2 cents in here and there.

Haha, I'm just trolling you. Just thought it was funny.

I wrapped my car cause there was two scratches in particular that absolutely drove me up the wall.

I completely get where you are coming from and I agree, but then I look at it from the perspective of the owners and I understand why they don't want their 400k car to get destroyed by some dumbass dump truck driver who overfilled his load barreling down the highway spilling gravel all over the place.

Lots of things are the same, running a case on your cell phone vs not, screen protectors, etc.

Isn't it cheaper to fix 2 scratches instead of wrapping the entire car?

My friend, a RS member here, regretted every moment of having his g35 wrapped. The day he saw his car after it was wrapped, he didn't even want it anymore because of how ugly it became. Yeah it is reversable, but would you really take off a $3000 vinyl wrap? No you wouldn't unless you have a huge fat wallet, might as well sell the car and make it look like a bonus.

It was the wrap that made him sell the car and I noticed that there are a shit load of people who tries to sell their car about half a year after they get the car wrapped.

Maintenance and frustration from edges wrinkling and etc. is what pisses most wrapped car owners off.

^If the scratches are that deep, wrapping over it will show... I can't imagine any scratches being so deep that it is worth $3000 or $800 DIY.

This is the wrong thread so sorry about the OT guys, but ill answer anyways.

One scratch was a rather deep one took all the paint off and gouged the aluminum underneath slightly. I thought this would show up under the wrap, but it was covered and I cannot even tell where it was anymore.

The other scratch was minor, surface paint only, but it was on my a-pillar and was actually from a bicycle tire (taking my bike off my roof racks). So it was a lot of little tiny scratches.

Getting both scratches fixed would mean painting and blending the a-pillar and an entire door.

Then because of the condition of the rest of the paint I would have to get a full polish (like it would have had to have been the most extreme polish ever) more than even I with my like 3 years of experience polishing and detailing cars would not want to try and tackle. So I would have had to farm that out, and my guess would have been about 600 to 1000 bucks for someone like terrence to go over the entire car.

So now we are up to about $2000 alone just getting those items fixed, and then I would have had to deal with the front bumper which had plenty of rock chips, and other various marks and small door dings.

Instead I chose to just wrap the car. The entire car looks BRAND new, and I don't know about your friend and where he got his G35 wrapped, but if mine starts to peel wrap-workz has a warranty on the installation.

I guess you can come back and ask me in a year, but so far after a month of having the car wrapped I am still genuinely pleased with the results and would re-do again.

Also when you say "maintenance" I have no idea what you are talking about, my wrap is far less maintenance than the paint job. All I do is wipe it down with alcohol every few days. Takes like 30 minutes. Washing my car, then drying it, then wax, and clay barring, etc could take upwards of 6 hours about twice a year, then just a regular wash would take about 1 to 2 hours.

I saw a RPI equipped Q5 at the northshore auto mall yesterday it looked crazy. Is RPI just a vdub tuner company? Is it strictly looks or do they do tamper with performance as well?
