thanks, that makes sense, and saving money tooThe day to day gravel chips and paint damage pretty much all occur on the nose, with a teensy bit possibly in front of the rear wheels. Following a gravel truck can chip up the whole hood and leave chips in the window glass, too, but PPF is for paint. I've already had to replace my windshield due to a flying bolt that hit us while driving on the freeway, but thankfully it only smashed the windshield. It could have come on through and taken out my wife instead. Don't know what it would have done if it had hit the front fascia or hood. My brother was driving his motor home under an overpass when a muffler fell from it and hit his front window. The muffler, still very hot, came on through, between him and his wife, and ended up, smoking, on the bed two feet from the baby. Some things PPF can't stop.
PPF is pretty much essential on the front area and fenders and maybe halfway back on the hood, but the line left by only doing the hood half way doesn't look good, so usually the whole hood is done. Not much else gets hit, and what does can be touched up if it goes through the paint. It doesn't make sense to PPF much more than that.
Im in Bay Area, CA, so predictably everything is expensive, especially for Tesla owners. But I decided to go with partial full front and ceramic coat for $3000Not sure where you are located OP, but $9k seems high. I was quoted $12k plus but after shopping around was able to find it for under half of that at a very reputable place.
Sounds high. I was quoted $6,000 for full PPF for my Incoming X, using Xpel Ultimate Plus. On my 2018 and my Model 3, I did not get PPF. I did get Ceramic Pro applied Direct on the paint. That ran $1,600. Ceramic coating gives you all of the easy to clean properties.Got a quote on full body PPF and ceramic coating for my X, $9000, is it worth it? Partial PPF is $3500. I commute 70 miles a day, just wondering if it really worth it. What is your opinion?
The problem with the wrap vs PPF is the thickness. You’ll be replacing the wrap within 5 years, maybe even 2-3 depending on where you live. In my experience, color wrap has offered me no protection on my cars. Looks great, when new.Sounds high. I was quoted $6,000 for full PPF for my Incoming X, using Xpel Ultimate Plus.

I am thinking about a color change vinyl wrap. I kinda have the hots for a bright yellow X (I’ve always liked yellow cars, since I had one fifty years ago). So I don’t know yet which way I’ll go.
