I have clear wrap (Called Clearbra) on the parts of my car that are most susceptible to stone chips in order to protect the paint below. Other than that, it's mostly a cheaper and temporary alternative to painting the car for special events or advertising. I don't really like the matte look either, but to each his/her own, I guess.Please don't let me insult anyone here, but I've never quite gotten the purpose of dipping or wrapping the car. I know it's popular these days, but it always looks kind of dull (matte?) to me.
Is there a practical purpose for it, or is it just a preference in appearance?
