Vinyl Wrap?

Ok so Im going to order the M Sport front bumper as I always intended. What I want to know is can you vinyl wrap on a prepped to paint bumper or does it have to be painted and clearcoated for the vinyl to take?

Its way cheaper to wrap, and there are a ton of shops by me that do it. Painting alone is like $600-700.

I dont think that vinyl can match the rest of your cars paint, unless you are wrapping the whole car. 700 seems to high to me, I payed 500 when I did the same thing you are doing and they even installed it.
