I suggest using Clear Armor instead. They use 3M material that's a bit thicker than xpel but it doesn't adversely affect the appearance of your car. We just had our IS and RX done last Friday at ADS in San Bruno, 650-455-8690. Phil is a CL member and has it on his show IS with custom molded-in wheel flares. It's $600. for a FULL kit, stock vehicle + you get a free car wash and wax by him at a later time). It's worth the slightly higher price over expel bc more areas are covered/protected. Retail price is $700.- $1000.(new car dealers).

It's a bit far from SJ to SB but I think it was worth the effort (we went from Fremont).
Tell him Ken sent you.

nah, 700-1000 is rip off. from what i have seen 600 is about the market price around the bay area on xpel install.

I agree...don't pay more than $600. w/ tax included no matter which product you use. That's what ADS charges + you get some extra goodies, too.

I've seen Phil's (ADS Mobile) work and it is amazing.

But, if you're looking for someone a bit closer or who can drive out to you, I highly recommend Ron Ocampo. He did my IS and he does an unbelievable job on detailing services as well.
