Default I'm Thinking About A Wrap...

I've owned my '14tt for 2 years and use it as a dd except in the winter. See pic below.
Have always thought this car looks particularly good in Carrara White, especially with black trim. (I also like Mexico Blue but I think it would attract too much attention.)
What do you guys think of a wrap?
Please share all comments, good and bad --flame away if you feel the need.
Also looking for quality installer recommendations. I live in Connecticut.
Thanks.

It's your car. Enjoy it however you want to. I've seen some great wraps, personally.

Plus much easier to maintain. A black car always shows swirls and small scratches unless you hand wash it with the right products and methods. And since few people do that, most black cars look crappy (for someone like me). High quality wrap -with some care - keeps looking good.

Sounds good. I would do blue rather than white for a wrap. More interesting.

One thing to remember is that wraps are thin unlike PPFs so you may need PPF over the wrap.

Wrap it, the shop I use for clear protection and window tinting is color wrapping Lambo's and Bentley's in the strangest colors you have ever seen, you have unlimited color choices

Default 991.1 Wrap Update

My wrap is complete.
Sam form Peak Graphics in Enfield, CT did an outstanding job.
Decided on Avery White Pearl which I think is a very close match to Cararra White.
Went with an Aero Cup look -> black mirror trim, door handles, rear vents, spoiler top and lower fascia.
The car looks like a new car.

What did this cost? Did they have to turn bolts and remove body panels? I ask because in the past when selling a car, people view turned bolts as a sign of bodywork that may have been done on the car. So you never want to turn painted bolts or remove panels.

Thanks for your concern. No panels or wheels were removed for the project; only headlights, taillights, mirrors and emblems.
Wrap does not void or impact vehicle warranty / CPO.
Cost ranges from $2,500-$3,000 for a 911 body style vehicle.
