Those prices are insane. There are other shops in the area that will do it for a fraction of that cost. Even if you have to have it re-done in a few years for some reason, you'd still save money.Lots of variables. I wrapped mine. Called every place in the area that had a good reputation and prices ranged from $6k-ish to $11k. The company quoting $11k was for Stealth; the XPEL Ultimate was $10k.

I spoke to probably 10 shops in the Seattle/Bellevue area, including that one you just linked. All the prices were quoted within that range. There were a couple of shops who I didn't get very far with because their attitude was so bad. Entirely possible they might've come in lower priced, but the initial interaction was bad enough that I wasn't going to do business with them regardless.
Be interested to hear who you know of that is lower priced as I'm always looking for decent shops for additional work I'm planning to do.
No one will tell you this but it’s a waste to get your car fully wrapped.
coating shop said:The films we use have a similar coating to ceramics, in that it's hydrophobic. Water sheds easily off the film. Some users have been known to install coatings on the films to theoretically add to that feature and extend the life of the film. It's hard to say how well it works but I would think to some point it will.
We can install CQuartz on the film after it's done (if you do the entire car) for $500
I haven't been looking for any quotes on full wrap work as I'm happy with the XPEL Stealth wrap that I already had done. I did speak with GorillaMad about a chrome delete. I had a few shops that won't do chrome deletes and recommend GorillaMad. Think they were asking like $1k for the chrome delete.Hey there Cap'n, are there any udates to your wrap search? My TM3 will be coming to Seattle soon ( hahaha) and I'm looking to get a 3M liquid Copper wrap. Did you try GorillaMad for a quote? I'm seriously considering going to Portland or even Van. BC to get a fair price. Seattle/Bellevue prices are crazy high. I'd appreciate any vues or comments you may have. Thanks ~ Rich
