Plastidip the car. It will be much cheaper and is completely reversible.

Here is an Audi that did it ...



Personally I don't like the flat black look as the car looks like it only has primer but at last plastidip is reversible.

Only cars what look good in flat black are super baller whips, everything else just looks cheap and bad imo.

I agree with vinyl. If you don't like it, it's easier to remove than plastidip IMO.

wrap it man, especially if it's flat. otherwise you're just going to pay for another paint job if you end up getting tired of it, definitely not worth the hassle. i'm not a big fan of it, at all IMHO.

I wouldn't do it either. The bad thing is, if you get a scratch or anything, you can't buff it out, or you'll have a glossy spot.
