Haha, to each his own. Dipping just seems to be a better alternative to wrapping. But in the end of the day, you are protecting the OEM paint by providing a barrier to the elements. I take it you don't like the frozen colors either?

I like regular, shiny paint. I don't like finishes that look like half-assed primer. I feel like matte/wrap/plastidip/etc. is just an inexpensive excuse to "mod" the car, which really detracts from it's cleanliness IMO.

On a side note
I had a subwoofer enclosure that was custom made to fit the left side of the trunk
It was leaking air in a few places
I bought 2 cans of plasti dip from home depot ($12 for both)
And coated the entire enclosure from the inside
Let it dry for a whole day (stinks when wet)
Enclosure is now air tight
It made a black rubber layer on the inside
It's supposed to dampen the sound too
Not bad for $12
