I understand that most installers do PPF installation that results in a center seam on the front bumper. While I have heard of a very few installers that found a way to avoid this seam. I have no idea if this seam would be objectionable or not. Can someone with this seam try to capture a photo of what it looks like and exactly where it is? Thanks in advance

There is no front seam on my XPEL Ultimate install; get another installer. The only seam on mine is where the trunk lid bends to become the back of the vehicle, which the installer pre-approved with me before I handed him my keys.

No seam on our custom full body Xpel wrap including edges. We had a film only tear from a wooden fence post meeting our front bumper and our guys said they could remove half of the film and leave it with a seam if we really wanted to save money (it was kind of expensive to replace) or just replace the whole bumper. We went the "whole" route to avoid a seam and any issues with it later with dirt, peeling, water getting in underneath there or whatever.
