canawrap is good.

mm design will end up putting matte black everything with matte red mirrors and accents b/c it seems like that's all they do. At least on bmws.

I've got a friend that does it at his home as a hobby. if you like i can give you his number. if you're around richmond or vancouver he can go to you for a price quote on what you want done.

Anyone have a ballpark figure as to how much it would run to wrap a car? Not looking for quotes just a general idea.

Talked to the Canawrap guys at the autoshow and it costs between 3k to 4k depending on the difficulty the wrap your car. I was told that the material cost is the same no matter the color.

I'm thinking of either matte white or matte black on a 2008 Mercedes C230 what do you guys think?

I just got a van done for a customer and he paid about $4300 for a very in depth wrap. It was wrapped with a Canuck theme. Speedpro signs did it. Turned out great.

i thought it would be cheaper than getting your car repainted.. guess not... unless they wrap the door jams and under the trunk lid etc.. then i would consider doing it... but ya ... 4000 is pretty steep..
