2012 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan WDT
Want to know the wheels that pearlyctsv @instagram has on his machine. Anybody?
I'm going to ask the indelicate question. (you're trading it so it somehow seems less gauche)thank you! yes it’s wrapped in 3M deep space vinyl. it wasn’t easy getting all the colors to show. i used iphone camera editing lol
Thanks!Love the new wheels; the OLD ones are just as slick. What sizes are the old wheels?
I actually got a hook up on the wrap and labor because one of my close friends here in houston, owns a shop. prices are going to vary from shop to shop, and it also depends on brand/quality/or grade of vinyl. there are a lot of DIY’ers out there and “professionals”. it just depends on how much you want to spend-right? for me: i thought about repainting the car (black raven), but the amount for a quality paint job ended up being almost the same, so i went with a multicolor wrap. the wrap didn’t affect the trade-in value if that’s what you mean by resale. the trade-in was based on negotiations. in the end, sewell cadillac gave me almost $23,000 for my 2012 (with stock wheels and 112,000 miles) which i put toward getting in to a 2019 V3. if i waited, i probably would have gotten more through a private sale, but $23,000 for a 9 year old car with that many miles - i took it and ran lol. the original paint wasn’t bad, there was just a bunch of tiny rock chips and door dings that i hated seeing every time i washed my car. the wrap probably helped (me anyway) because of that. the installers also took care of the dings before they laid the vinyl. i only had the wrap for about 9 months up until the trade in, so it was still very new except for a few scratches under the rocker panels from me hitting the edge of my driveway. i was already in search of a V3 for most of 2020. i just wanted to have some fun with the V2 before i got rid of it. i was very aware that i wasn’t going to gain any kind of value by wrapping it and slapping on some rims. the car did get a few other mods over the past 7 years i’ve had it, that i could have parted out as well. the only items i were able to keep before they delivered the V3 to my driveway, were the aftermarket wheels and aero force gauge.I'm going to ask the indelicate question.

How much does it cost to have a quality wrap like that done, using the same quality of materials?
The follow-on: how does the wrap (assuming perfect condition) affect the resale?
