I'll try to give my 2 cents here.

There are many types of vinyl out there but they primarily fall into two categories.

Casted and Calendered , also known as CAST and CAL. 

I was going to write a long-winded spiel and then saw here that it's been done.
http://www.ebay.com/gds/The-difference-between-Calandered-and-Cast-Vinyl-/10000000002950459/g.html

All in all

CAST (2 mil)
Pros - Installs to compound curves, can be heated and will not "spring back", longer life span, thinner - conforms better to non-flat surfaces.  Lasts better around oils, solvents, etc. Can be installed under a clear coat.

Cons - Price is higher

CAL (usually 2.5 - 3 mil) Sometimes thicker if construction grade.
Pros - Cheaper, same effect as CAST if you need the same look.
Cons - Will shrink over time.  I'd say a 24" x 24" sheet after a few years will shrink about 1/16".  Should not be used in warm environments or under clear coats.

I've done a number of motorcycle parts where the part was vinyled and then clear coated afterward.  So long as CAST vinyl is used, this shouldn't cause any issues down the road.  I haven't actually seen any done with CAL vinyl and then had clearcoat crack, but in theory if the vinyl wants to shrink after years in UV, it would cause stresses on the clear.

I do agree though, its probably best to use a high temp paint, but if paint isn't your think, vinyl does the job.  I did a set of decals for Zaiders old Subaru way back and he mentioned there were no issues with the vinyl.

Is there a big difference between bad quality and good quality vinyl?. I notice some people emphasize buying "HIGH TEMP" vinyl for brake calipers. I just wanted a professional opinion.
