I'm using 3M. It's the easiest to work with in my opinion.

These are the most important things when vinyl wrapping in my experience:

Use a felt squegee
Use a heat gun, not a hair dryer
Heat up the vinyl to strech but before stretching you'll want to wait 2-3 seconds for it to cool down to avoid discoloration
Stretch it slowly
Buy extra vinyl in case you mess up. (I was driving around in a half wrapped car during my last wrap because I had to wait for the vinyl to come)
And most importantly
TAKE YOUR TIME. If you rush, you will get wrinkles in the vinyl.
