Subaru WRX Wraps
Subaru WRX, with its sleek exterior and powerful engine, is one of the most thrilling, high-performance, four-wheel drive sports cars. It is for those sedan fans, who like speed, cutting-edge technology and great comfort. This car exudes magnetism with its distinctive silhouette and has been a great rival at the World Rally Championship.
If you have had your Subaru WRX for quite a few years, you might want to change its look now by adding fresh color to it. The first thing that comes to mind is to repaint your car. This might prove to be greatly expensive and time consuming, and will even reduce the resale value of your Subaru. Vinyl wrap is the perfect solution for a luxurious new look that will not burn a hole in your pocket.
Why Should You Wrap Your Subaru WRX?
Wrapping your Subaru with vinyl is the best decision when it comes to revamping its exterior. Here’s why you should opt for a premium quality wrap for your car:
- Vinyl films are highly cost-effective and easy to install.
- You can easily customize your Subaru WRX and design the way you want the images, logos, or lettering to appear on it. You can also have a monochrome vinyl wrapped all over.
- There is a wide variety of colors, finishes, styles, and textures available in vinyl. You can give your Subaru a bespoke seamless vinyl wrap without damaging the paint on your vehicle.
- Driving at such great speed, deftly cruising dirt roads, your Subaru WRX is bound to sustain damage to its body. Vinyl will save the paint underneath from road debris, minor dents, chips and dings.
Hence wrapping your car with vinyl is highly feasible. It will not only provide color transformation but also add value to your car and save it from detrimental elements on the road.
The Exclusive Variety Of Vinyl For Subaru WRX
There is a wide range of vinyl films available that will transform your Subaru into a gem on the road. Below are some suggestions as to what vinyl shades will look best on it.
Metallic Vinyl Wraps
Sleek and sophisticated, metallic vinyl is a modified version of the glossy wrap that contains metal flakes. It further adds vivacity and zing to your Subaru WRX which is already a robust, high speed sedan. The metallic wraps at Vinyl Frog are available in six surface finishes: Glossy, candy, rainbow, glitter, matte and brushed.
In glossy metallic vinyl, the color Midnight Purple will add an extra dose of glamor to your Subaru WRX. Vampire red is another good option. For a zesty facade, candy shades are the best such as neon yellow, gray green or neon ice blue. If you want your Subaru to present a play of colors when viewed in light, the rainbow metallic majestic white is the shade for you.
A little ritz and glitz looks good on a vehicle like Subaru WRX. A full wrap with mirror chrome gold vinyl is perfect for this. If you want to tone it down a bit, you can mix and match it with high glossy paint black or carbon fiber wrap on the hood or roof. On the other hand, the shimmer can be completely reduced as well with matte metallic charcoal gray or hunter green.
Glossy Vinyl Wraps
These are a great substitute for the shiny, glossy paint that costs a lot more. This is the vinyl that is highly coveted and is nearest to the original paint look. It is a premium quality wrap with a smooth texture and a luxurious finish that will make your Subaru WRX stand out from the crowd.
There are so many colors in glossy wraps that you will be spoilt for choice. Blue is the favorite of most Subaru owners as it signifies its electrifying speed. We will recommend high glossy Laguna blue for your car. You can also create an exquisite design by installing white stripes on the back fender with glossy pearl white vinyl wrap. The combination of blue and white is extremely eye-catching. Super glossy maroon is another great option especially if it is applied in combination with black for a two toned effect.
Chrome Vinyl Wraps
With chrome wraps your Subaru WRX will rock on the streets grabbing everyone's attention for sure. At Vinyl Frog, Chrome wraps are available in three variants: mirror, opal and satin chrome. We have already mentioned the combination of mirror chrome gold with glossy black on the hood for a flashy facade. If you not only want the reflective shine but also the psychedelic colors, our opal chrome white vinyl is for you.
Satin chrome, on the other hand, has a completely different surface finish. It is as if your Subaru WRX is wrapped in pure silk with just the right amount of shimmer. Satin chrome prismatic red, silk ultramarine and chocolate cosmos are the colors we recommend for your super speedy ride.
Matte Vinyl Wraps
While glossy vinyl wraps reflect sunlight and shine brilliantly, our matte vinyl films are the complete opposite. They are designed to absorb light and present a completely toned down exterior. Matte vinyl wraps give a cool, sleek look to your car accentuating its curves and contours. Subaru WRX is the kind of car whose body work needs to be in the limelight. Imagine it swathed in matte black exuding nothing but sheer charm and panache.
Another color option in this finish is matte military green. It is a dark, muted shade of green that adds a heightened sense of mystery to your vehicle. For a silvery finish, you can go for matte silk gray blue vinyl wrap.
Carbon Fiber Vinyl Wraps
This is an extraordinary vinyl that presents a perfect imitation of the original carbon fiber. It is truly mesmerizing and has a very unique surface finish. When used with other vinyl wraps, it creates an amazing contrast that looks classy and elite at the same time.
This vinyl is excellent for partial wrapping. You can apply it on the hood or the trunk of your vehicle with other glossy or metallic vinyl films on the rest of your Subaru WRX creating a striking contrast.
How Much Vinyl Is Needed To Wrap The Subaru WRX?
The height of Subaru WRX ranges from 1465 mm to 1500 mm depending on the variant, trim, and the year that model was launched. The width ranges from 1795 mm to 1825 mm and the length varies from 4595 mm to 4755 mm approximately. In order to vinyl wrap your Subaru WRX, you will have to make a game plan. Firstly, you need to determine the parts of your Subaru that you want to wrap with vinyl. If you wish to opt for a partial wrap such as covering only the hood, trunk, roof, side mirrors or the bumpers, it would take less material. But if you want a full makeover for your car, you would need 16-18 meters of vinyl.
In case you are intending to wrap your car yourself, you will most likely need some extra vinyl as you can make mistakes. However we would recommend against doing it yourself. An automotive professional will better gauge the amount of vinyl needed and will do a flawless job of wrapping your Subaru WRX. The wrap will also last longer without coming off at the edges,
The Cost Of Wrapping Subaru WRX
The exact measurement of the vehicle, the quality of vinyl and the cost of labor - all three factors are taken into account to determine the price of wrapping Subaru WRX. A quality job by experts will typically cost around $2500 to $5000. This is an estimate for a full wrap.
The cost may decrease if you will wrap it yourself but only do so if you have the experience and expertise required for it. If you do not want a monochrome wrap, you can go for a printed one or mix and match different types of vinyl to create a two tone look. The design can be simple or complex. If it is the latter, the price will increase. Depending on the extent of customization it can go up to $5000 as well.
