    My X60D is coming in late September and was wondering if I should do the seat backs in XPEL. I am doing a chrome delete so I might as well do XPEL seat backs while they are doing it. What do you guys think.

    If you have kids, definitely yes. The gloss backs are a scratch/fingerprint magnet. I got Xpel Stealth and am happy with the look and durability.

    Thanks for the response! two kids but they probably won't eat in the car. Just for my consideration, around how much did they cost and can you send me a picture?
    Thanks

    Absolutely worth it. With or without kids, trust me. If you are looking for an ace installer at great pricing, PM me.

    Here's mine with Xpel stealth. Should be in the range of $150 per seat.

    I concur also. I'd also recommend wrapping the rear seats if you have the 6/7 seat option. I can easily see those getting scuffed if you ever put the rear seats down to fit cargo (and crap).

    I have the 6 seat one. Probably should since will throw bikes and other crap in the trunk and would be afraid of scratches

    Thanks for the picture! Looks awesome. It looks a lot like the MS seat backs but that is a good thing.

    Thanks guys!

    Thanks for your initial reassurance. I went with Auto obsessed in Edmonton Alberta Canada .Very happy with the Expel and the installer.

    Given that these are in kit form now has anyone tried to apply themselves? Wondering if its that difficult a job. I tried once to do an XPEL front bumper kit on a GT350 and quickly realized I was out of my league.

    I found a crack on the back of my 2nd row, not sure if it can be repaired or if it is just a scratch but I can feel it when I slide my hand on the back of the seat. Not sure what caused it

    Maybe it happened when you folded down the third row

    Don't forget the back of third row head rests to be included in your Expel.

    Actually it is the front passenger seat, it is not cracked but a deep scratch

    Could it have been when the second row moved forward and it hit the seat
