MBi,Have Front hood and bumpers currently on the car, but what did you all do to your cars? Did anyone get a car fully protected in PPF, if so what did you pay and region if you wouldn't mind sharing? I am in NY but had a dealer do it in the past.
A film over paint will protect the paint but is not immune to blemishes. Paint can be “corrected” but plastic is well, what can you do? There is plenty of paint on a Maserati, If I had the choice I would skip the covering and spend the money on occasional touch ups.
Hey bud.. im from fishers and have a 2015 GT Sports.I have a quote from Darrings Detailing in Indianapolis for Clear Bra coating on the front, partway up the hood, and in a few other small places PLUS ceramic nano coating on the rest of the car (low mileage good shape 2016 GT). $1900 and they will prep the paint and touch up nicks. I have an earlier version of clear film on an Acura MDX and I am very happy with the protection from stone chips and the overall look after 7 years. I suspect even modern clear film won't look quite as deep as nano coating but I will discuss that before doing anything. I belive the overal look of a film and nano ciating job will be very good. Nothing beats clear film for chip protection in my experience.
Can you tell me why touch up paint would ruin the car? I have a few chips and spits I'd like to fix before getting film or nano ceramic. The fixed and polished paint would be allowed to dry / cure for 6 to 8 weeks in a garage before adding any film or sealant.XPEl all over the car, I have had this car in Manhattan and now Florida. I would not hesitate to make this investment again. I would like to add, those recommending to "touch up" the car with paint, will ruin it, forever. I can always replace XPEL film, which is the best in the industry.
