    Default Paint? Wrap? Plasti dip?

    I'm just throwing in questions because I barely have any knowledge in this.

    What's the best option to change the car color? If I want to change the color and most likely won't change it back to original.
    I know common sense says paint if you don't want to change back but many people I know went for wrap and kept it.

    Is plasti dip a good option?

    aaaaaand What are the best places to do in UAE? Any approximate prices?


    Thanks in Advance

    Foil is your best option. Plasti-dip will peel off with flying stone chips and sand particles

    Thank you Rafik.

    Any recommendation on where to do it?


    I saw a Video of a Nardo Grey X6M on the club's instagram account and loved it. Any idea who the owner is and where he got it done?

    The Nardo X6 is not a Foil, there is no foil that replicate Nardo correctly yet. Owner is Ghassan 0-60MT here on the forums.

    If you are going foil, I have seen good foils done by Top Car (check their insta) and they say its not that expensive (They are in Ajman or more northen).

    We had a foil sponsor here before but cannot see the logo anymore, but I think FoilaCar in Dubai does a good job (the more expensive part).


    I'd love to go plastidip but its overpriced in here upto the level that you can actually paint the whole car at the same cost. Sand and chips will do harm to everything including paint however platidip has evolved a lot where it requires base coats and clear coats reaching to almost 15 coats per car (Watch DipYourCar on Youtube for some drooling).

    Let us know how it goes!!
