Wrap.
Cheaper and can be removed for resale, or if you decide you don't like it anymore.

Wrap.
No one in his right mind would buy a flat black car for more than 50% of the market value, because if it is decided to repaint with a gloss finish, you'll have to address all the dings and imperfections that the flat look hid.
It will not be just a wet sand and shoot...

I would do the wrap.... If you dont like it or it doesnt look good you can take it off no harm done since its not permanent like paint
