I want to get my white 2013 Pure wrapped instead of painted. Has anyone out there done this? If so, how did it go? How much is a decent price?
Back in 2011 & 2012 when I had my 08 smart cabrio.
I belonged to the now defunct Sin City smarts here in Las Vegas. A few of the members had wraps on their cars. Back then the cost was around $1500 or about the same cost as a full panel change.
One problem that happens is that, if you have a very personalized wrap, (think hello kitty, Betty boop and any sports team) selling that car without removing the wrap is almost impossible.
I saw it happen within our group. The owners couldn't understand why their wrapped cars weren't selling. They thought their cars were sooooo cute.
1. Selling a used smart is hard enough. The potential buyer base is very small.
2. Limiting a miniscule buyer base with a personalized wrap shrinks the potential buyer base even more to almost non existent.
3. The plus of a wrap over paint is that it can be removed and the paint underneath is protected.
Good Luck and don't forget to post before and after pictures.
Three examples: 2 wraps and one standard color. Guess which ones will sell first.
