    So I made a boo boo as I turned up the Manhattan Center parking lot in Kwai Chung (black listed as well since I had it on standard ride height on the air suspension and it still scraped my rear bumper chrome trim piece as well). Finally got time to go back to the installer (Roy, phone/whatsapp 5635 8897) who offered to redo the bumper films for me free of charge (nice guy, I highly recommend him).

    The scratches looked deep, this is after I tried "buffing it out" (you can see the film actually shifted from the force of the impact on the right hand side near the wheel well where the film bunched/wrinkled up)

    After the film was pulled back, not a scratch underneath!

    My side doors also have scratches from people opening their doors like a selfish moron but they buffed out; if the film wasn't applied there'd definitely be scratches or dents.

    How much did you pay for the protection film, Titus?

    He charged me 23k HKD for complete bumper to bumper coverage of the car side doors and everything. There are different shops out there using different material and of course each say they are the best and say other types are bad haha, most just cover the front bumper and hood and Roy was cheapest for wrapping entire car. Plus he was nice enough to redo the front bumper for me for free after the scrape. You can ask him for details, phone/whatsapp 5635 8897

    It took him 3 days as I needed my car overnights; 2 days if you leave it over night I believe. So I just dropped it off in the morning and let him complete as many panels as he can in one afternoon and come back after work.

    His shop is in Tai Wo Hau, right outside the MTR station
