    Apparently this is a good idea because it protects your car from scratches too.

    I've been googling it and nearly all sites I've found require you to:
    *Pay a registration fee
    *This will enrol you on heir website
    *They'll then tell you which companies will pay to advertise on your car.

    - In other words, a con. The one site that doesn't seem to do this is the "comm-motion" link above. I'm going to give it a shot and see how it goes.

    A few sites have pointed out that if you don't do a full body wrap then some parts of your car will be in the sun and the paint on those parts will fade, which wouldn't be too good...

    I've registered but not heard anything back yet. I have to admit, what you've said about making the car noticeable concerns me as well. Not sure what I think about turning my car into a billboard, gonna wait and see what happens methinks.

    Why don't you contact the companies in question directly instead of through a middleman? Then you don't have to pay anything!

    Oh well, I never heard back from the companies in any case. I think the people that charge a registration fee are certain taking your money and you're unlikely to get anything back. The sites that offer free registration may be worth taking a look at but it seams to be a bit of a lottery as to whether you'll be chosen....
