It goes good with the fake plant. :D

Actually, I'm wondering if this is how they might be trying to steer people away from the classic looks of the Classic?

Johnny,
Gloss black, you read my mind. That would be an awesome look!!!

Not a fan of the wrap in any form. Veneer would be worth a look but not vinyl in this form at least.

Nope. As others mentioned before, it looks cheap.

It does have me thinking about a custom vinyl wrap on top of the black vinyl on my Prime. Lot's of possibilities, favorite bands, sports teams, patterns, etc...

I'm just afraid it might cause damage when removing.

Thanks Mat for the effort that certainly went into making the wood vinyl wrap. To echo what others have said, I think an option to get a Prime in a automotive type glossy finish would be cool. Maybe offer it in three colors.

Unfortunately have to agree that looks cheap. I wouldn't buy it. I would and will shortly be buying a black Prime. Sorry Mat!
