Plasti Dip Question for those who have used it

Now that some have used Plasti Dip on misc. parts of their car and its had some time to get a little wear, how is it holding up and where did you use it? My M5 bumper strips look to be of different vintage and I was thinking of painting them so they look the same. Can anyone offer any feedback after some use and abuse?

Good for small trim pieces. Bad for big jobs.

did my trim and grill with the stuff over 3 years ago and it's still holding up. really expected to be redoing the job every year as part of normal maintenance but it's really spray and forget.
