My Custom Coutryman :D

Got my countryman back on Friday and its looking sweeeeet

I got it wrapped from a company in Shipley called ReformaUk check them out when you can Car Wrapping, Car Vinyl Wraps | Reforma UK. Never really heard of them before but they've got some interesting projects going on in there. I was looking around for companies that did wrapping and most of them only wrap the car as it is. These boys take off most of the body parts off and wrap behind them so there no chance of it peeling from the corners, which is a good thing considering I'll be going through some moderate terrain quite often .

Anyways heres the what the beast looks like now, I wanted a contrast with Matte and gloss so I went for a matte grey with metallic grey detailing and roof... hope its a thumbs up from you all

I usually hate the look of the countryman but I have to admit yours looks decent :-) . But you don't have to take off bumpers and other panels to wrap a car to prevent it peeling ,I'm a car painter and wrapper . Just saying .
Deffo a good choice choosing the matte and the gloss , very nice contrast

So, as someone who until now didn't even know of the existence of wrapping, what are the pros and cons of doing this?
I take it that the majority of the car is wrapped in the matt vinyl?
How about any dings acquired? Surely a risk of peeling / tearing?
Is it removable ever?
Easy to clean?

Lots of vans are done this way to show the clients logo and advertising, its normally done to basic white vans and the its removed by heating it with a heat gun/hair drier tool to return it back to original before its returned to the leasing company.
The stuffs fairly resilient.
