pros and cons of full body paint

We are in the process of purchasing a new 2400S Sunseeker and would like to know if the full body paint is worth the additional cost. Thanks!

On my 2nd full paint scheme and frankly it makes the coach appear enormously better, richer and most important finished. Forget the cost, it's only a profit center for them anyway. Negotiate total cost to you- otherwise they'll fragment your arguments.

I would guess a possible con is that colors soak in heat more than plain white. But, I'm not sure I'd let that be enough to dissuade me from it- they just look sharp.

I really looked at the full body paint, but the DW and I could not get the look that we wanted to go with the tuxedo black Ford. The money was not a determent. They sure look good!

I would say the bottom line is -THERE ARE NO PROS OR CONS, IF YOU LIKE IT, BUY IT

we just traded in a full body and ordered white - main reason is touch-up is a lot easier with white. The colors change a little with age and white does not. Also, I think the full body reminds me of Nike and is a bit overdone - too "swoopy". I'm an engineer and my tastes lean toward simplicity.

But if you like full body enough to justify the cost, just do it. Consider the value of every time you feel good about the look of it worth an estimated amount of money an multiply that by the estimated number of times you will appreciate it - then just do the math. If the total is worth more than the cost, it's a good investment.

Not sure if the white has decals or paint but, if decals, for sure they will peel and fade eventually. If the full paint is maintained, it'll last a long, long, time.

We were afraid the decals would pull off. That is our main concern.
