Matte White vinyl wrap on a civic. Rice or nice?

I've been looking into an EK for ages, I want white more than anything, but if I can't find a decent condition white one, I was hoping to wrap it with matte white vinyl. I get it/the labour for dirt cheap, maybe 1/4 the price of actually painting the car. But wanted to know how the general revscene population felt about a wrapped, lightly modded civic hatch....

If you want it white just paint it, it'll last longer.

But you should get it yellow with blk and yellow rims hahahaha

lol no moar yellow. I don't wanna spend as much money just to paint it as the car is actually worth, can't justify that. However since wrapping is dirt cheap thats why I'm considering it.

I'm gonna wait and see the results of how it looks (quality). My GF's dad works for them, and they are doing his wifes car in Pink. I wanna see how it turns out before even asking if he can do friends cars.
