I just got a quote for that clear protective film.
1.hood fender mirror combo....99.95
2.front bumper....179.95
3.headlights...free if I get the bumper done
Total with labor...490.97

Does that sound reasonable? I'm thinking of just getting the hood done right away.

Is this a quote for the stuff Xpel sells? Or si it another company that gets the 3M stuff and custom cuts it?

They said they custom cut it with some sort of computer at their shop.

I paid $180CAD (incl. material, labor and taxes) for the following:
1. front bumper
2. mirrors
3. roof, just above the winshield
The hood, fender, headlights, and foglights were already done by my dealer. The price I paid was in Canadian dollars, so after conversion, it would cost $50US...hahaha just kidding.

I got mine done at the same place that Ducky did. I had them throw in for free when I bought my car (then again I'm sure I paid for it somehow out of the whole equation).

The price you are stating seems a bit high to me.

Good luck!

Dude.. for that price, you CAN NOT go wrong. I have almost $ 1300 worth of the 3M product on my car and it's held up awesome. Colorado puts gravel on the roads when it snows, so, believe me, this is a great testing ground.

Got my hood, front bumper, headlights, fog lights, and side-view mirrors done for $485. $490 is not a bad price at all considering most places around So Cal charge $600+. I don't know what the average price range is in FL, but $490 is good.

I just had my windows tinted and asked about that type of protectant. They sell ScotchCal (which I believe is the same as the others - Xpel &amp; 3M) and he told me 109.95 to install it on my hood, fenders, and bumpers. I about fell over when he told me that. I was expecting 300+!!! As soon as the weather warms up and I can fix my paint chips, I'm there!!!!

I think the stuff I saw was Scothcal. I'm definatly looking around now!!
But they are claiming it is a 3M product. Does anyone know if it is or not?
