    Matte Flat Black Wrap on 2007 CTS-V. What do you think?

    Thinking about doing a Flat Black (Matte) Wrap on my 2007 Silver CTS-V. The Car already has flat black power coated Wheels. I have never seen this on V1 CTS-V.

    The place I'm considering to do the work is in Dallas Texas Called Skin Wrapz. Check out the Cars they have done:

    Do you like this look? Any suggestions or Ideas?

    1.) i don't think flat black really goes well with the lines of the car. glossy colors just seems to look better with the sharp lines IMO.

    2,) you posted this in the wrong section

    I vehemently disagree. I think the lines make it look even better in flat black. It will really give it the stealth fighter look.

    I concur. I always liked the flat black look myself.

    Additionally, it will protect your paint. Maintenance is really no different minus the need for wax. Think of it as a vinyl racing stripe on a car, does not require special treatment.
