PPF recommendations for a PPF/Ceramic Coating installer in SoCal (Inland Empire/Corona/Ontario) area??

Sorry, been busy all week. As promised here are some pics of the install.

I initially wanted to get the entire car done in XPEL Stealth, but change my mind and got the XPEL Ultimate on the full front clip. I also had them add custom cuts to the high threat areas in the rear and added ceramic coating on top.



It was hard to capture in photos, but N-Tech added PPF to the bottom along the contours of both doors. Also, I felt they did a better job than most on the side mirrors, the PPF goes all the way to the edge of the mirror housing. They did a great job tucking the edges around the hood, quarter panels, and front head/fog lights.

As stated above, N-TECH is a small outfit with only two people (owner and a helper) doing the PPF. This leads to longer install times (they had my car for almost 8 days) but I felt they did a great job, especially for the price. Like many, I was hesitant to go with N-TECH due to their lack of reviews. When I was picking up my MY, they had several high-end supercars in the bay getting worked on. Hopefully, the pics will convince others who are on the fence about N-TECH.

Looks great, I'm thinking of using them as well when I get the MY. It's on order since March with dates keeps getting pushed.

Sorry to hear that. I almost delayed my pick-up on March 22, but CarMax actually offered more for my trade so I pulled the trigger. It has definitely been a process just getting the car tinted, PPF, and coated. To add insult, Tesla had to repair the cable for my screen so all in all I was without my car for almost 1 month!

Just wanted to thank you for the review. I was super hesitant going to them since I have an appointment with them coming up and some other person posted saying they had a bad experience with a PPF installer in Riverside but didn't say the name. Thanks for clearing it up. I'm super far from them though so it's going to be a little bit of a trick figuring out how to get back and forth.

I made my appointment with Ntech for later this month based on the positive experience here. I finally got the notice to pick up my car. So if it works out (praying) and everything is acceptable I'm heading down there to get it done. I told them I'll be providing positive review if they did a good job here. I'll post pics and feedback when the car is done.

I'm picking up my car soon, dropped it off on 5/25. They also do Tinting with Xpel XR Plus. I couldn't find anyone who would do the roof for a reasonable amount near me but they will and the price wasn't bad at all. I should be picking my car up sometime this week. Went Full PPF all around with a roof tint since I already got the other windows tinted elsewhere. I was considering a ceramic coating on top of it, but it seemed to be the only thing that didn't seem to be a value.

How did it turn out? I was thinking about the rear if it would be too dark to drive at night after tinting.
