Default Xepel ultimate saves the day!

My IS350 has a front wrap of Xpel Ultimate Clear Bra. Work was done by Advance Auto
Engineering in Cerritos CA. ....a recommendation from forum member Jerry West.
Monday, my son borrowed the car and ran along side a cement barrier while parking it.
LONG SCRATCH!!!!!!!!!!!!
Took it to Advance Auto to remove the torn film before going to the body shop for an estimate.
Removed the film and the car is PERFECT! No damage to the paint. They say they see this
all the time where the film saves the paint from scratches. Replaced the area that was
damaged with new film and the car looks perfect. Thought I would pass this on to other
members that are considering installing a clear bra.

Just called them and got quoted $1000 for tint, vinyl wrapping the chrome trimmings, and clear bra.

It's a great investment. I just did mine, opted for the full front bumper, full hood, full fenders, full rocker panels & mirrors it came out amazing. Also, got 3M Crystalline, 40 all around & 70 full windshield. I decided to do both those things before any suspension & wheel upgrades so that's up next.

sdotk, that's a great price. nytefury, on my bumper they just replaced the section that was damaged. Not sure what I originally paid to have the entire car wrapped but it was more than the quote sdotk received. They did
a great job and I'm so happy I did it.

I'm not sure what the cost was for the full bumper only as ravicchio mentioned, but the parts did on my car was around $2,800, Xpel Ultimate.
