Should get my black M3 in two weeks and am trying to decide which of the above options is the better use of limited funds. (Full wrap is out of the question.) Have read some of the previous forum posts about PPF and coatings but would appreciate fresh input on this. Local options for PPF are Xpel Ultimate and for ceramic, Ceramic Pro, Gyeon, Crystal Serum (last two the same?), and Opti-Coat Pro. 1. Can you see the Xpel edge if you only partially wrap the hood? 2. Can you see a difference between wrapped and unwrapped panels (e.g., hood is wrapped but fender is not)? 3. Can you wrap partially this year and then extend the wrap and/or apply ceramic coating next year? 4. Can you coat this year and then wrap next year? 5. Any thoughts on which coating is best? 6. Buy the partial wrap job but then coat it myself? 7. Not worry about any of it and just wash the car as is? Thanks!
