Wrapping or Painting my car...

Any ever wrapped their car? I noticed its becoming popular and wondered if it's a better option over painting. Forget plasti dip. What's your opinion?

Define 'better'. It's a little cheaper and is temporary. And as soon as you open the doors you can see what it is. Most budget approaches give a good 20/20 result. It looks good at 20 feet or at 20mph.

Anything good will be $2k or more. Granted a solid paint job will cost more than that.

If your car "needs" a paint job get a paint job. Truly the wraps nowadays look awesome and I have seen some ones it is hard to tell door open. That said they are usually done on newer cars with good paint by guys who want a specific or different look. You will spend about 1/2 as much on wrap as paint (comparing same quality levels) but it wont last 1/2 as long. Esepecially if you have paint issues.

Basically if you need a paint job get one. If you are all good and want a different look a wrap is a good way to do it.

And I don't think striping etc is really an option. I think layering vinyl on vinyl isn't very feasible, but I could be wrong. If you want any custom areas, you need something done with a gun, not a squeegee.
