How much did you wrap your car in it?

1. Full car (total wrap)
2. Full hood, mirrors, side panels and doors
3. Half hood and mirrors

I am debating between options 1 and 2 understanding that full car wrap is a lot more expensive!:surprise:

Yes, Rick at UCC is waiting for me to bring the QV in, I just need to decide which way to go.....
I might splurge and spend the $6000 for the full wrap since I intend to keep her for a long time.......
Merry Christmas!

If you can afford it go for the whole car, basically also worth it if you plan on keeping it long term with the understanding that after 5 or 6 years everything will need to be replaced.
That is what I was thinking! Thanks!
BTW, where can I find those tow hook license plate holders/Video camera mounting maggiggi you have?:grin2:

The thing with the new windshields is that there's no trim to remove around them anymore...that can be good and / or bad.....good in that there's no trim to damage during the removal of the windshield, bad in that the installer should be neat and not use excessive adhesive because you can't hide it with the trim....But there is so much technology in the windshields, the install is not as straightforward as it used to be...My Volvo V 60 needed a windshield replacement and this car has all the radar stuff in the windshield as well as an electric defroster (as is found in the rear window on every car)...it took two replacements to get everything to work properly....Factory OEM glass each time..

For what its worth...I did what they called a "Track Wrap"
used SunTek....entire front bumper, fascia, hood, front fenders side mirrors, lower CF rocker rear quarters...
roof & rear trunk not done....

personally I'd rather spend the 6k on a set of HRE rims:grin2:
think mine cost me about 2k with taxes and that included a full detail prior to the application...they had the car for 3 days...

Boston - I did a full car XPel Ultimate wrap, done before I picked the car up at the dealer.

I got the NJ shop to go down from 4500 to 4000, but it looks amazing. Only one VERY little bubbly end on a car mirror, otherwise a flawless application. I'll handle that locally in charlotte when it warms up. The stuff is supposed to seal back with a blowdryer the way I understand it.
