Ferri... Vinyl has held up without change since installation. Once in a while it gets some ArmorAll but would consider this "minimal maintenance." Is automotive-grade vinyl, 4 way stretchy, black textured surface (matches Porsche text quite well) with a woven material backing.

If using Gel Epoxy, suggest woven material backing very important as this woven backing is what gel sinks into. I'd not advise using a NON-backed vinyl as ANY imperfection will be transmitted to the visible surface. With a woven backing, the gel grabs the backing leaving the vinyl to "float." (Gel applied to dashboard is no more than a "skim coat." Too much gel and the vinyl turns into a water bed! Much testing was done to get this procedure correct.)
