    PPF in Montreal

    I am expecting to take delivery of my M3 LR in late May. Based on all the research I have done, seems like PPF is highly recommended considering the paint quality on the Teslas. Any recommendations on a reliable place for PPF and Tints in Greater Montreal Area?

    Xpel Certified Installer vs Not Certified

    Tesla OEM Rear Door PPF damaged in packaging

    Has anyone had issues with the packaging of the Model Y Rear door PPF causing damage to the film? I’ve gotten 2 films (original, replacement) from Tesla. Both have come with the corner edges being smashed enough to cause some creasing and lifting of the corner of the film. Is this normal? Will...

    Full body wrap PPF rear hatch seam?

    I’ve never considered a full wrap on my previous cars, and my first 3 was the first time ever using PPF (partial). But I’m really digging the way a stealth wrap on MSM looks. I talked to my installer and he warned that the rear is very difficult to do. If I want it in one piece it’s over $6k...

    Fix front bumper chips

    I purchased a used M3 coloured MSM and the previous owner did not put on PPF. It’s difficult to see in the picture, but the front is chewed up from tons of rock chips. Anyone know how I can fix this (and the approximate cost)? I will eventually get PPF for just the front bumper as the rest of...

    3m vs Xpel PPF

    Receiving my Y roughly next week. Either places near me do 3M or XPEL. Which brand is better. Some of the sites show that 3M and Tesla have an official partnership.

    Although it may come early, I'm scheduled to pick up my TM3 on Sunday, Sep 13th. I've already talked and texted with the manager at the shop where I plan to take my vehicle for PPF & ceramic coating. He recommends bringing it to him directly after I pick up my car. The reasoning is sound - i...

    PPF Installers in Nashville?

    I'm currently doing some research on PPF installers in the greater Nashville area. After speaking with every company listed on the XPEL website, it seems that none of them remove trim and wrap every panel. The consistent message I got was that they will wrap where they can (e.g., frunk lid) but...

    Diffusor + Lip Spoiler install BEFORE or AFTER PPF?

    A few questions in regards to the timing of PPF and Diffusor+Spoiler install. What makes more sense? 1. PPF front and rear bumper, then install the Diffusor and Spoiler? 2. First install Diffusor and Spoiler, then PPF the bumpers. I'm worried whether the PPF will actually hold the Diffusor +...
