I appreciate an advice to remove the wrap, which I won't do for the reasons already explained. I don't appreciate all the following assumptions that the car is damaged, rusty and whatever else because it's just not the case. I posted pics of what the car looked like just two weeks before the wrap.
This comment is almost as funny as "the car has lost some hp as well". It's a 2006, and I believe we're in 2017? The wrap was done when the car was 10 years old, not 12/13. The paintwork was flawless, besides a couple of stone chips, which are absolutely normal and were properly patched by the previous owners. There's no rust anywhere. The car has been - on my request - checked by Dub Customs and Technosport with the order to fix anything that would appear to be wrong with it. I had money to spend when I bought the car, therefore was looking for a good one, which is why I spent 15.5k when there were other cars for sale from 12k. So I was also ready to spend more to make sure it was in proper condition and safeguard it - and as you can imagine, the garages would have been happy to take my money if they could justify it. I also had a full warranty going on from the day I purchased, and still going on now, so if there was anything wrong I would have made a claim and fixed it.Your wrap is on a 12/13 year old car
All these comments are really unnecessary and based on no evidence, and their only result is to create panic and hijack my sale. I don't think it's fair. I don't see people going to other threads assuming that an engine is about to explode, etc.
I have to come here everyday to reply to people sharing horror stories about wraps. I don't think everyone with a sales thread has to do the same about horror stories of bad garages doing poor service etc. I just say that my case doesn't necessarily need to be like that, and then the next day someone else comes to add another horror story. Really? Maybe you guys need a thread for wrap horror stories, it doesn't need to be here, it's seriously off topic.
By the way..
From: http://finelinegraphics.co/vinyl-wraps-myths-debunkedInstalling vinyl on your vehicle, will damage the paint underneath.
False. In fact, it’s the total opposite. Many people wrap their vehicles to preserve the paint underneath. The vinyl acts as a cover for the paint, preventing any adverse weather or sun from beating on the paint. It also acts the same way a clear bra would, protecting the paint from small scratches and dings from rocks or debris. If uninstalled correctly, the vinyl won’t leave any residue, or peel any paint or clear coat with it. That being said, if the paint is already in bad condition when you apply the vinyl, you can expect it to still be the same when you peel it off!
