depending on the vehicle i'd say just do it yourself.

My dad did his rocker panels and front bumper of his car himself to drive it up to kelowna, looked perfect in a matte black and he has little to no experiance in doing any sort of automotive painting

how much more work is involved for that kind of finish?

Still cheaper than a vinyl wrap based on the notion there's less time required for labour. There are better polymers out there that can give an even better gloss than painted cars.

It requires a painstaking amount of time to achieve that finish, a lot more than the 3 stages required for the Maserati which is probably the most intensive job I've done so far for a client. Professional equipment is a must as well as experience. It's something that I will be continuing to experiment with before actually offering it.

Saw "V.spec II" on the back as it went past. Not sure if it's legit but it was still pretty cool to see.

i think it was this... it's been on RS here before (was shipped by container). the owner used to have the yellow one that was seen at the thurs meets last year but it's since been sold to someone in alberta:



1999 Vspec R34 For Sale ** White **

A couple of snapshots from the McLaren Vancouver launch of the 570S. It's a stunning car in person...

I really don't like how the 570S looks. The headlights and taillights look like they were drawn on by a kindergartner as an afterthought on an otherwise OK looking car.

Nice flowing organic lines then suddenly scribbled on taillights

Seriously, the more I look at those taillights the more my jimmies are rustled.

Actually it's not just the taillights. I know McLaren was going for the "raw" and "racecar" style but to me it looks so brash and unfinished, especially how the entire rear end is unpainted. From an aesthetics standpoint, definitely not the prettiest car around.

Looking at the 570S after looking at the P1 is like looking at 328i after looking at an M3.

I think you have to look at their target market for this car. It's not going to be found in the garages of middle aged millionaires, but the underground parking lots of high end condos. Driven by the children of new money who are more flash than substance.

Imho, not a good direction for McLaren to go. That particular market is just too fickle, following trends rather than passion.
