    1) Partial Xpel Ultimate wrap and chrome delete of whole front hood, bumper, fenders, mirrors plus the luggage rack area
    2) 3M crystalline coating on the rest of the non-PPF part
    3) All Chrome and badge delete with 3M Satin Black.

    I'm in Hong Kong and have been 2000 US$

    BTW the car will be a commuter daily driver not really used on highways or long distances.

    Question is would you say it's worth doing this or his or better to do 3M crystalline coating on the whole car?
    OR just not bother given that its a city commute car 25 kms a day?

    The coating will protect against bird droppings and environmental damage. The paint protection film (PPF) will protect against some stone chips. If you're driving a small distance in city conditions you may not have a high probability of stone chips. One option may be to have the PPF installed on just your front bumper and then coat the car yourself with a user friendly ceramic coating.
