Good job! Makes it super easy to clean. if you have never had it before, you will be impressed!

I have this on the RS, but this time am only planning on doing PPF to the high risk areas in order to keep costs down

2600 euro in Italy for llumar certified 360 degree application by a maniacal local installer who managed to do the M mirrors too and even the tail lights. Rooftop and its glass are also protected. Threw in a reflective tint strip too on the upper windshield which matches the donnington body.

Thanks. I was originally only going to do ceramic but then remembered how many hood chips from highway gravel I had. Not to mention door dings in Italy and bumper rubs from incapable parallel parkers. In the end, I just said screw it and bit the bullet protecting everything. It already began to pay for itself after some idiot tried to door ding me the first week. I just took a heat gun to the scuff and it disappeared to my delight. Money well spent in my opinion.

Great work, looks fantastic! I would love to get a ceramic coating but I am moving house and I fear I would be battered by my better half.

Adelaide really growing on me. Enjoy!

How much did that cost you?

Iím in the US (NY) and got a quote of $2k for the front and $5k for the whole car in PPF/XPel. Seems pricey.
