    Hey everyone,
    Sorry for another post of pictures. I just got my car back from getting a full xpel stealth wrap. I know the satin finish isn't everyone's cup of tea but I personally really like how it changes the look of the car. To be honest, pictures don't really do it justice but here are some shots I took last night and this morning anyway.

    Very nice! Did you order the solid or pearl white?

    Thanks Erik

    Hi Erik,

    Mine is the solid white. The stealth gives it a cool sheen though.

    The only negative is the missing badging .... otherwise the contrast is very sharp

    I really like that, and I like it with no badging, it keeps it looking clean. I'm not usually into the matte or satin look, but that looks fantastic.

    I'm going to put back the rear trunk T after it gets painted black.

    Thanks! I'm not sure how many years I'll keep the satin look but at some point I'll remove the film and go back to gloss.

    Nice, it looks great.

    Some people prefer the badges and some don't. I put mine back on, but have seen white without badges and it does offer a nice clean look.

    Thanks Erik

    Looks great! The frozen white's contrast with the matte black accents and wheels gives your car an aggressive look.

    Would you mind sharing what this cost to have done and how it's holding up for you?

    Looks great! Wish I wasn't such a tightwad. I need to figure out if I'm doing paint protection or not. My car is supposed to be here in a week or two. Just in time for snow and gravel season. Bad timing.

    It has only been a few months but it's holding up quite nicely. I had the shop redo a couple sections that weren't perfect but it still looks great and I get compliments almost daily. Most prices I was quoted was about 5k to 6k. That being said the shop that did mine here in Vegas was under 4K and they are one of the authorized installers from XPELs website. I think the best part is having the peace of mind to take it on long trips and not be overly worried about rocks and gravel and what not.

    Thanks electroman. The price for paint protection is definitely hard to swallow. I guess I justified it because I was getting protection and the unique look I wanted
