Paint Protection Film

Post by dan_uk_1984 » Tue May 19, 2020 8:10 pm

For those who are UK based - has anyone had PPF applied? Any problems with it?

I've had a quote from a local firm - £2,500+VAT including full machine polish prep etc. This is for the full vehicle excluding roof.

I bought a bottle of Macguire for £28 and applied it myself as per instructions and I am quite pleased with the results.
Great gloss and water beads up nicely and runs off on subsequent washes. It last for about 2 moths and then needs to be applied again.

Lovely - not sure that will protect against scratches though - like a paint protection film.

I’m in the ‘States with PPF from Xpel. Love it.
That price seems very reasonable. Most quotes I received were in the range of US$4,500-$5,500 (£3,700-£4,500)

Xpel have special Velar kit. Price sounds right. IMO too high to justify it where I live. I can get it repainted for less, not to mention the insurance covers fixes. But mine is matt, no microscratching to worry about.

I have had Duratec PPF applied to the gloss black sections on the A/B/C pillar and the roof sections.
I have also had this applied to the bumpers, the headlights and the running board.
I would strongly recommend PPF as they are prone to scratches and swirls (particularly the A/B/C pillars) from regular hand car washes.

These PPF films do scratch but all you do is apply hot water to them (boiling off a kettle is fine) and the scratches disappear!

I paid £450 on top of the £500 for an enhanced ceramic coating with two stage machine polishing on bodywork, and applications on interiors, alloys, glass, etc. The ceramic coating comes with a 5 year guarantee for gloss and beading and has worked perfectly on the 2 year old car.

Also have PPF on my AMG (full body wrap) and would not consider a car without it now.

Do not have a Vinyl Wrap done - absolute waste of money when modern self healing films are available.

Good luck

Now I am normally very careful when hoovering the car, however I slight slip of mind and I ran the brush part of the hoover over my screens..... scratched to pieces and I proceeded to cry.

However, I had been smart and covered these in Xpel ppf and after a day in the sun they had gone. These where quite substantial scratches too.

I now have the Black Aston booked in to get the ppf treatment as the ceramic coatings don’t protect against swirls and marring. It’s far from cheap, but in my eyes especially on black cars, it’s a must.
