Most certainly you may wrap the the interiors of the car. Painting them is an option but won't leave you with many choice once its done. Secondly, even a good quality wrap job may be much more economical and less time consuming than paint. Its far tedious to change a painted interior than to change the wrap texture of the interiors of car.

Here is a pic of my City Ivtec's front inner door pads partially wrapped in Carbon Fiber wrap purchased from Mumbai and got it fixed at a reliable and trusted person in Noida.

Dear, I have not experienced it even though almost 60% of my car is wrapped. Water seepage might have been there only if there would be a bubble while placing the wrap which ultimately culminated into rust. Otherwise, wrap is just a textured paper which does not harm car's paint rather protects it from light scratches.

However, In case of interiors, one basic and important thing is to be kept in mind i.e each and every plastic part that is taken out for wrapping should be properly fixed back in place. Every lock and corner should be properly aligned.

How is the quality of these wraps.. I mean do they really stick that well?

My concern is about wear and tear how long we can expect them to last?

Well they do stick well. I got these door pads partially wrapped 1.5 years ago and still they are intact. All the more necessary is the fact that these wraps need to be placed using a heat gun and very precise workmanship. The lifetime of a wrap depends on its upkeep and certainly on the quality of wrap. If the upkeep is good then it definitely lasts for a good time. Prior to getting a full gloss Black roof for my car, the earlier matte Black roof wrap lasted for almost 2 years without any scratch.

Great![clap]. In Delhi you may get Wraps at IDE Autoworks, Retro Wraps, 3M Outlets, Karol Bagh. You can surely check out web portals of Ali Express, Amazon et al for them.

There is no problem in wrapping a car in any state of India. As I said earlier, the quality of wrap should be decent and application of the same should be really precise and neat using a heating gun. Take my word on it, you won't be disappointed. I also stay in Noida which is near Delhi and mind you in this part of the country we experience scorching heat in summers, good amount of rains during rainy season and lots of dew during winter mornings but in the past 2 years as I wrapped my car I have not faced a single issue with the wrap. All you need to do is just take simple precautions of keeping the wrap clean and prior to wrapping choose the texture and quality wisely.

I have experimented a lot with wraps. My parents gave up on me[lol]. But I feel good that today my experiments make me slightly capable of answering the queries.

Some pics for you.

I have tried all textures i.e Gloss Black, Matte Black and Carbon Fiber. In short, the car has been transformed into a clown now as per my mom[embarass].

Sorry but i love first two pictures . In third picture it looks overdone
Firstly veerey, no sorry and all. I eventually removed the wraps from front fenders and canards also are gone now. The 3rd pic is an old pic. Now it appears sane.[;)]
