    I thought I was going to skip wrapping my car but after 3 months I'm getting a lot of rock chips and a scuff. Also somebody decided to key my door.
    The paint on this car is extremely soft and easy to damage. I had a Volvo before, almost the same color grey, it had barely a blemish after driving it for 10 years.
    Did anyone wrap their car with an installer here in San Antonio?
    Roughly how much does it cost? I read stories of people getting $10K quotes for a full wrap. That gets close to repainting the car.
    Any input would be appreciated.

    Hello, I have not had my car wrapped in Xpel but I know some friends who have (one has a Tesla) and Jay's Detail on Nakoma does a great job. He recently estimated it for me to be around $5-6K for a full wrap. I think that is a reasonable price from the research I've done. I have had Jay do other work for me (tint and CQuartz) and I've been very pleased with his attention to detail.

    If you need any more information, please feel free to DM me. I can introduce you to Jay, if interested, or you are welcome to mention my name.

    Good luck!

    Regards,
    Ben Lee

    I had XPEL and tint done by Jay. Can't say enough good things about his customer service and his attention to detail.

    We missed you at the Austin Auto show this year. I'm thinking it's too small to bother with anymore... #sadpanda

    Jay's detail is there. I really can't speak highly enough. Jay was in my shop for a week and his film installs are amazing. Not sure about other in the area but Jay's work I saw was top notch! Cant go wrong there.
