    Since the Tesla factory armor is insufficient in regards to coverage, ive decided to do a full wrap at a local shop, the cost is $3500+ GST CAD (i think this is an ok price as it will take 4 days!, most of it is labor)

    the shop offers Xpel Ultimate and Xpel Stealth, Glossy and Matte respectively.

    what do you guys think?

    I heard they don't last very long before they change color and yellow.

    From everything I've heard, the yellowing (on any film) happens because of using products with petroleum distillates (wax). Use products designed for film and they shouldn't yellow.

    I just found out Xpel Stealth/Satin is NOT self healing, i dont think i would spend $3K+ for paint protection unless i got the best so ive decided to get Xpel Ultimate.
