plasti dip? or matte paint?

as you can see I need a paint job badly and for the time being i'm going flat black
now i got an offer for someone to dip my car but maaco is also running like a 250 special i was just wondering if anyone has experience with dipping and if any one has experience with matte paint and which one looks better? and what is the life time of them?

I've never dipped a car myself, but I've heard from many that it'd last anywhere from 6months to a year. Touch ups may be necessary. Maaco, IMO isn't very credible because of the type of paint they use. Something that is supposed to last a good 3 to 4 years they make last one year.

I plasti dipped my rims, emblems, hood scoop and mirrors. Everything turned out smooth and really clean except for the hood scoop. I don't know what I did differently but it is rough and covered in bumps. I would do plasti dip because of my good experience with it. I am going to redo it eventually but I haven't had any other problems with it.

I really don't think you can go wrong with any matte color. It'd look pretty sick either way! That'd probably be a personal preference thing to choose a color.

Look at YouTube videos by dipyourcar.com they have videos showing a bunch of colors and techniques for dipping your car.

Unless you have a good hook up at maaco don't fo there, I had the hook up thru my moms company and they take care of all her fleet cars, and I made sure they didn't go cheap on me.
Paid 2,000 and the paint was really really good.
Only ended up with one chip in a year and a half cuz of a rock.
