There will be gaps where panels meet obviously, but nothing that you should be able to notice. You can wrap vinyl down into the sides to an extent.

Wowee. That looks amazing. Hope it stays looking good for you.

Well done on doing it yourself. Sounds like a very time consuming difficult job to me.

I wish I could see it in the flesh.

Yeah, and a proper vinyl wrap shouldn't look any different in those areas than it would with a paint job. All I'm saying is that the vinyl won't be continuous over areas where panels meet.

This is a pure white MINI i saw in Paris earlier in the year. Looks fantastic! Also, personally, i think a full respray would be better vinyl does look a bit dull after a period of time and as previous said it doesnt polish up as good as paint does
