XPEL paint protection (or other)

Post by jonnyfox » Sat Apr 27, 2019 11:58 am

Anyone had this fitted to there S1? The areas particularly of interest being front clam and sill area. The sill area or rocker panel kit I would like to find out exactly where it covers.

The guys that did my BMW were able to custom cut so that you could cover exactly what you wanted. Was all cut on a machine, based on computer templates, not on the car.

They did an awesome job, real perfectionists.

I may be interested in the front clam cost too as I’ll need to put replacement ppf in 👍

Thanks Will. I need to look into that if I can't get the critical areas properly covered.

My car is booked in for a full detail and ceramic coating on Tuesaday but the guy XPEL recommended to fit the film said not to ceramic coat areas he's fitting to as he'd need to wet sand it off and only to use water based wax.

I had the paint correction done, then the ppt applied, and the ceramic done last, including over the ppt.
