VINYL WRAPS V.S. PAINT
You can change the color of your car without messing with the resale value. In fact, it can actually work in your favor. Since you are covering your paint, you are essentially protecting it. This could help protect your resale value. Before selling, peel off the wrap to reveal the paint below which has been protected from UV rays, contamination, scratches and paint chips. Additionally, if you are changing colors, unless you take the car apart and paint the engine bay, door jambs, trunk, etc. (very expensive), you will have a different color in those areas. Wrapping, you have the same situation, BUT it’s NOT PERMANENT. If you want your paint to match your engine bay again, just peel the wrap off.
Furthermore, there are some colors, finishes, and effects that can be done with vinyl, that cannot be easily accomplished with paint. Some of these include chrome, color changing, pearl, and satin finishes. For these options, it would be often better to go with a car wrap instead of paint.
