Default NOOB Exterior Graphics Question?

I recently purchased a brand new 2010 MINI Cooper Clubman -- it is PACKED with upgrades including the sunroof and body color roof with spoiler. I recently started looking at graphics for the exterior of the car (bonnet stripes, sunroof wrap, etc) and am a little bit concerned with the life of those graphics.

All of the research I have done suggests that the graphics last about 3 - 5 years. I have also read that you should hand-wash your car if you have exterior graphics.

I am curious as to whether or not anyone has had issues with their exterior graphics? How do you wash your car? What graphics did you install?

Thanks in advance for your help!!

I have ones from http://www.aestheticreations.net/
I have hand washed and waxed vehicles , my other cars had vinyl on it for 13 years and still looks good. Mini's 5 years old and still looks good ...
I've seen mini installed stripes in the 7 year old range still looking good

I love that site! Great stuff, the only question I have is what would be the best way to have it installed? Should I get a "pro", I'd hate to mess it up! Any ideas???
