Good or bad PPF?

I just got my car back from getting it PPF. I’ve never PPF my previous cars before so not sure they did a good job or bad job. I went to a reputable, highly recommended place. They’re aware of some of the little air bubbles and will be fixing it but are the other issues ok or am I being picky? I thought the seams would be wrapped around something so you would not be able to see it.

Ive done PPF three times in my life. Just did my Model Y last weekend and I would say mine came out comparable to that. Better in some regards though. The gap in that seam on the bottom bumper is pretty bad. They didnt stretch it far enough to close the gap. Air bubbles arent a big deal, The sun will take care of them or you can use a diabetic needle. I bought a kit with wrapped edges so theres very few spots you will see the edges of the film on mine. Looks like they didnt use it, and you cant assume thats what you will get. It would need to be specified. Its also more work. You have to dry the edges with tack solution and then wrap them after a couple of hours.

How much did you pay and is it a full front? Meaning full hood and fenders?

It’s full front and side track. Paid $2500.

Given how much you paid just for front and side, I would expect higher quality (in particular the edges to be wrapped/tucked). It might depend on where you are and the prices locally, but that's a higher end front/side figure, imo, and so I'd expect better work. But I'm still a bit new to this - someone else confirm? :)
