I finally bought my first decent car recently - paid $31.5k for a 2014 Tarago Ultima V6 in excellent condition with 43,000km on the odometer. The body and paintwork are pristine. It's white in colour but I've always wanted a black car because they look good. So I'm thinking about spending $4k to get it wrapped in vinyl. I will keep the roof white for heat refelction and get the rest of the panels wrapped in satin black. Apparently matte black shows too many marks like fingerprints etc so satin is a nice compromise if I don't want a gloss finish.
Do people think $4k is too much to spend comparative to the car's value? Or should I go for it (YOLO!) if I can easily afford it? Wraps tend to last 3-4 years depending who you ask. It's a thin vinyl film applied with a heat gun and also needs to be removed by a heat gun. Cost to remove is about $600. I also need to notify Transport Dept about colour change
