Because I could!
Given that there was some kind of damage on every panel, Eve was going to need a full respray if I was going to get her looking good again. A wrap was a far cheaper option and even if I end up getting her wrapped again in a few years time, I'm no worse off.
Obviously, going for either a full respray or a wrap gave me the opportunity to change the colour. When I was going through all of the available options I did seriously consider getting her wrapped gloss black. I've had Eve for 7 years and although I'm not desperate to replace her I thought a change would be fun.
I really liked the panther black and thought it looked good on the five door but I feel like I've got a new car now so I think I made the right choice for me.
It most certainly is cheaper than a respray I would be happy with the finish too! Does looks very well done. Glad your happy with it. I got mine resprayed and it cost a small fortune!
