  • Matt Black Vectra VXR

    Has anyone done a Matt Black Vectra VXR paint/vinyl job ?

    Or any Vectra-C facelift in Matt Black ?

    Pics please?

    My paint guy wouldn't do it, I have enquired before, luckily my painter turned me down as its apparently a mare to keep clean and marks easily, but would be good to see

      I reckon it would look great but alas you'd now be considered to be copying the fucus ****....

        i have actually thought about it and made enquiries to have this done as well as black wheels,i can get a matt black wrap ,all car covered even all the chrome bits, for £1575....oh thats with either a carbon look bonnet or a carbon look roof,with mirrors carbon covered if i wanted out of excess cutoffs lol.... just waiting on funds to come through and the computer images to be done for me and ill post when i get the pics of how it should look !

          thats the novelty of a vinyl wrap i suppose stew,as its shinty and wipes easier,dont think id matt paint it,rather wrap it tbh...

            Does anyone think it would be a bit big a machine to be completely Matt tho?

              I'm really undecided Stew,

              Looking at the Vectra, the front end would look really good... but the side panels are very flat / slab looking and so is the rear boot / hatch area.

              Matt finishes look good as they reflect light and show off the curves and bulges / lines of the bodywork... the vectra only really has these at the front.

              However, saying all that.... I cant help think, with the right wheels and subtle carbon detailing here and there... it would look top notch...

              Very clean

                  How long do you think your computer images will take?

                    I dont think the Matt black wrap looks good at all, to me a car should be nice and shiney, i seen a 5 series BMW on autotrader last week and it was wrapped and i didn't like it at all, but thats just my opinion

                        Most cars look good in matt black if you ask me, although it's a pain to look after.
