Next month my car will be satin black, for a cost of $200. That will be THREE times I've changed the color of my car for still cheaper than wrapping it once.

Haha, yeah it looked strange to me at first having it all solid. I peeled the side badges and dipped the grills black, looks much better now.

To the OP, as you can see vinyl wrapping has a strong fan base, and some haters. Plasti dip also has a strong fan base, and some haters. In the end its your can and your money. You are not going to ruin your paint or anything but since you have such a nice new factory finish why not invest in some really good polishes and a DA and keep it clean and shinny for a few months before you cover it up?

I only got into wrap and dip because of my destroyed front bumper; if I had a choice I would have preferred to not go dirt farming/replace my front bumper and keep my factory Lightning Red for just a tad bit longer (hell I only got to use my new Porter Cable on it like twice!).

Here is a dip that I'm pretty sure has not been edited:

Looks like vinyl to me.
