    I did it once and it was a mistake. For a daily driver it is stupid. Has to be cleaned carefully and has a whole different set of precautions.

    Not a fan of the vinyl wrap, mainly because it's always ricer looking designs. Perhaps with a decent design it'd be ok.

    I have a Friend who, along with a professional wrap installer
    (is that what they are called... or is it wrap artist?!!)
    wrapped a BMW in white carbon fiber look vinyl. It's not the
    first car i have seen up close like this and they are always
    twenty footers!! Any closer and it's grisly. hell of a work up
    too, to get it all around the handles,bumpers, into the window
    aperture edges...etc, etc. It is peeling and showing bubbles
    beneath in numerous areas... yuk.

    I'd say get a good tin of polish if your paint is good!!
