Cool All About Roof WRAPS

I noticed there was a thread called 'all about roof racks', while i was searching for roof wrapped Impreza's. This inspired me to start a thread dedicated to vinyl and dipped roofs.

Not my car:

I debated on gloss or matte black, went with matte as I was told gloss would swirl over time. Mine still looks mint.

How is the 3M holding up? I've heard some cons about 3M vs. other companies.

it's doing pretty good. it was applied in the spring and has only seen summer to this point. currently, I do not have any complaints...only that I installed it myself and would have gone easier with two people. if I were to do it over I would probably go with a gloss black, but I had such a great deal on the 3M carbon through work it was too hard to pass up.
