Places you guys would recommend getting a Vinyl Wrap in the DC/MD/VA area?

Hey guys, I am new here, but I am finalizing the purchase of an 09 E90 this week.

I have been considering a glossy Vinyl wrap for the car for three reasons.
1) As i understand it, it actually protects the original paintjob and therefore keeps the resale value up (if you take it off right before you sell it of course)
2) I figure I could get a Laguna Seca Blue (or something close) wrap as that is my favorite color and would make the car even more special to me.
3) I live in an apt and can't wash the car myself. I also hear that taking it to even a touchless car wash can be bad because the rails can damage the wheels (is this true?). Anyways I figure at least even if the wrap isn't getting washed regularly, at least it is still protecting the paint. (is this true as well?)

There are a lot of places that wrap in this area, but I know that a wrap only looks good if the job is well done, do you guys know of any places you would recommend in that area?

Also, when you have a glossy wrap finish, do you need to care for the finish differently? Is it more or less work than a matte finish or regular paint job?

Sorry for all the questions, but any info you guys could give me on this would be much appreciated.
