Paint is permanent,,, wrap isn't. So come time to sell you've a bigger market if its all one colour as sprayed bonnets and roofs ain't everyone's cup of tea. That's my opinion anyway lol.

Definitely wrapped, can take it off and can even protect the paint.

How durable is the wrap though the only worry I have is that when I'm washing it will it peel off

I wouldn't do either. 

 

I think it looks good plain personally.

Done properly a good quality wrap will last years.

As for the mirrors, I bought an unprimed set from ebay at around £16 and bought some paint from ford to respray. That way I can always put my originals back when I come to get rid of the car. I've considered the roof but they I may as well have bought a corsh1te white car, black mirrors, black roof, black wheels....

I think wrapping is the way forward as others have said it can be removed if you change your mind and can protect the paint. It's also a fair amount cheaper than painting so a win win all round as far as I can tell!  :D

How much is a full wrap? I know prices will fluctuate from company to company though. I'd love to wrap my zetec s in Matt black..

They do seem to vary quite a lot. Probably worth having a look at an individual company's work before making a decision but in my experience you buy cheap, you buy twice!!  :D

I got my wheels done the other day and was going to get it the mirrors and roof wrapped but I left it as I think the mirrors wrapped just look like cheap black plastic ones.

Some places do a really nice carbon effect film that looks really good!
