Just keep in mind that the 3M Di-Noc has a 4 year outdoor lifespan. If you garage the car at home and work and don't subject it to harsh weather, it'll be longer. But just FYI.

This is the only thing that's stopped me from pursuing a roof wrap. I'd be interested to hear real life experience from anyone who's had it done. (Maybe time to start a new thread )

What's the lifespan of regular grade vinyl?

There are different types/qualities and I don't remember exactly, but I do remember it being significantly more. To the point where I was thinking of potentially going that route instead. Another option would be to possibly put a catalyzing clear coat on top of the 3m cf to extend its lifespan and make it glossy. I haven't researched the affect of this yet though. This might make it harder to remove however.
