I wasn't quoted anything less then 4,000 for a matte paint job. The wrap is very easy to deal with, if I get a rock chip I just cut a tiny piece of wrap and "patch" it up. It's also quite resilient, matte paint is harder to deal with. If a bird poops on matte paint and you leave it on there it'll stain. I've had the wrap since Dec 2011 and it's holding up excellently, so I'm very happy with it.
