Some ppl just dun care. The car I always see in the carpark is always not washed. The condition is horrible but the owner dun seem to care. Sometimes I happen to see other cars their condition is also the same, never washed.

Spay paint gives a refreshed look, while wrap is more edgy. Compare price and go for the cheaper option. 2 yrs later, COE is going to drop big time and you will be selling your car.

Under normal wash....is wrapping better vs paint against scratching...any members here can give us a comparison?  I'm referring to gloss color wrap...not matt type.

Hi bro wrap or respray each have their own benefits.

 

The downtime for a wrap is only maybe 2-3days and costs about $2k.   Later on if you wana restore the original car colour u can simply unwrap.

 

But the wraps have more limited colour range, unlike water-based paint, they cant easily mix the colours fer diferent shades.  But they also offer more unique colours e.g matte finishes etc

 

Wraps are also good if you like to achieve detailed colour schemes, eg is the M3 GT Candy Cane job.

 

By comparison respraying can take anything from 8-10 days for a complete respray. 

 

You can try Project De Creation for a good wrap.  They also do CF wraps i think.

 

I m thinking of wrapping my car too.....hmmmmm....now i am darn itchy.  Lol

 

 

I am wondering which way is better, have 3 years left and was thinking either to respray, or car wrap(so can cut the polish).

 

Anyone know where to do good car wrap? 

 


Hi bro wrapping will not solve the dents and dinks on ur door.  Before you wrap, and i empahsise BEFORE, its better to do PDR (Paintless Dent Removal).

 

If u wrap fisrt n do the PDR later i dont know if the finish will be perfect.

 

 

My doors have a lot of dents some are quite deep. Is it possible to be wrapped?

Pleasant experience with the boss (Dexter). Didn't know they have shifted to a few levels up at the same building. Sent my Fiat to do some simple servicing few months back and was also informed by mechanic Shen/Sheng about an oil leak that will have to be rectified soon. No hard selling on their end. Price is also reasonable. » Read More
