did you notice many cars being vinyl or other material wrap? It is cool to see those machines up close and talk to the owners.

There was a good share that were wrapped, but even more notable was the number of OE cars being painted in matte finishes, Mercedes, Audi, Lexus and a BMW all had booth cars in matte. There were a few I had to ask if it was wrapped or not, even with the trunks open, it was hard to find where the vinyl ended.

The wrap is great for a lease / saving oem paint...there are many choices for color / pattern...cf etc...the matte looks great also. The cost is still up there near paint but the stuff just peels off later for a color change / turn in date. It is amazing how much the material will pull and stretch...then you set the shape with a heat gun...and it looks very smooth.

No pics of cars I can afford like a Kia? :)

BMW charges a premium for their matte finish and you have to sign a waiver as it does not carry same warranty as regular painted ones. ???

That 911 looks like trouble!... I've been looking the DragTimes.Info channel on Youtube and man, that car is a beast in 1/4 mile. Not that great in the mile but it's a 9+ second car... Even the GT-R have some trouble reaching it in the 1/4 mile. Lambo. Not so fast. Ferrari neither... I love the look on the Lambo tough. Here. Look at it. Good channel.

It was, the convertible and coupe. Looked good in person, same proportions as the c6 for the most part.

It would be nice if I could afford one of those cars. The cheapest one is prolly worth more then my house.
