    Looks stealthy! What color was your car before the wrap? Midnight silver?

    For Xpel Stealth what's the ballpark cost for the entire car? Getting my 3 in a few weeks and really enticed about getting the stealth due to the matte look it gives along with the paint protection. I'm in Texas for reference.

    This might sound surprising, but it's really hard to say. It depends on shop experience on car, their standard of quality, and customer support. I highly recommend no matter what you do, see the shop's work in person just to make sure both parties are on the same page.

    Looks like you're in Dallas. If you want some recommendations in Dallas, just pm me.

    I've gotten a few quotes from reputable installers around my area about a full XPEL Stealth or Suntek Matte wrap. Prices range from $4500-$6500. Of course, YMMV.

    That appears to be the range I see in SoCal as well.

    @Kpfeif

    Any thoughts after some time has passed? Still satisfied? Would you do anything different?

    Just curious.. I’m locked in already so too late for any 2nd guessing from me doing the same.

    Mine's got a full XPEL Stealth wrap as well. Had it for about 4 months now and no regrets. I will say that you should understand from the shop how they do their wraps. I'm still annoyed about edges that I see and the things that aren't wrapped that I expected to be such as the door sill base and the top of the bumper inside the trunk area. I expected full wrap to be over all painted areas, and that's just not the case at some places.

    Personally I recommend Satin/Gloss Black so there is contrast but I won't protest as long as it doesn't look like this:

    What!!! There's so much personalities going into this car. It's like a housewife, pimp and geek just built upon each other. Also why a google chrome symbol on the rims lmao.
