Shadowline Window Trim Vinyl. Any complaints?

I know there are plenty of threads on the chrome window trim and the options to make it black. but has anyone seen complaints about this vinyl? I bought a roll for my window trim and When I unrolled it I was pretty disappointed. It's extremely thin - nothing like 3M 1080. It doesn't feel pliable at all and seems like its going to rip very easily. I did a test strip on one of the bottom sections and it wasn't fun to work with. I bought the gloss black.

I'm considering taping it off and painting...it doesn't seem as logical to pull all the trim fully off, according to what I've read. If not I think I'll just wing it and see what it looks like afterwards.

Search. There's a a million threads regarding it. I did mine and it held up fine.

Edit- I'd do the wrap over painting it.
