Like some others have said, PPF is a great option if you can fit it in your budget. BUT...if your car is a daily, then chips, scratches and like will find their way on to your car no matter what, unless you are fully wrapped.

Haha thanks. It may work for some and not for others.

I for once am super proud of the custom solution Iíve made. Iíve had numerous people reach or to me to make them their set - I was happy to do so. The car will never stay perfect, but with this it will stay cleaner and chip free for much longer.

Ok...just pointing something out.
Just came back from a drive in the rain. Look how much little debris these things stop, and how clean the doors are!

Anyone interested in me making you a set? PM me

They look clean and do the work.

If you are in USA they might redirect you to me. I have some in stock here and more on the way.

I actually found some on eBay when I checked and their website said they were backordered. Wish I knew you had them ready to go!

It's all good, they should be able to sort you, it just takes longer to get from them.

I have them packed and ready to ship, usually ship same day if paid early. Then in your hands couple days later since I send 2-3 day priority.

Fully agree. they look plasticy, and I always get asked why have I put them there. Is there an after market version?
also Cermaic coating didn't really work on this.

ceramic coatings offer ZERO rock chip protection. Clear bra is your only real solution here without doing the flares.

Instead of dropping thousands on PPF find a good paint shop to do touch ups. Save yourself the money...unless you have a color that's extremely hard to match.
