Ok I love this color man!! Just a few questions? How much vinyl did you order? Was there enough? Cost? Time? Also in your opinion how would it look on an 05 wrx slammed with white wheels?

Edit - I read your first post haha I got all the questions answered!!

Good job on the wrap! I love Matte Dark Grey because it has somewhat of a metallic look or flake in it. It's great and definitely something I considered before doing mine.
Tip: Use Meguiars Wash and Wax car shampoo followd by Meguiars Quick Spray Wax and it'll get your vinyl to bead water off even better without comprimising the look of the matte nor the longevity of the vinyl. You may also use Meg's Quick detailer between washes to keep it looking good!

Nice job! I was wondering did you take the WRX side badge off to paint them like that? I'm interested in doing it myself but I don't have my car yet so I don't know how to go about doing it. I want to be prepared xD

Thanks for the tip, as of right now, I have yet to wash it and have just detailed it using Turtle's spray wax. Out of the many that I've used so far, I'd say this one gives the car a fresh wax look and feel. That was before the wrap. Since I have a whole bottle left, I've just been using that. I may end up going with the meguiars in the future. I have used those before too.

@luan87us
i actually left them on and covered them with vinyl in matte black prior to wrapping. I actually had them wrapped in carbon fiber vinyl before that, but didn't like the look so I ended up taking them off and going with the matte black

Reason I suggest Meguiar's products is because that is what 3m recommends... Turtle wax may or may not work just as well but IMO I tend to stick with what manufacturers say, to avoid any type of issue down the road.

The vinyl will hold on for a very long time. Mines still going strong except for the places I didn't clean very well such as under the side skirts, and around the wheel well area. Other then that, it's still clean! A lot of people even thought I painted my car.
