Hi Guys,

I went to Max Protect and had the front part of the car covered with Xpel Ultimate PPF.

That's

Headlights
Front Bumper
Front Bonnet/Boot Lid Question
Front Wings left and right
Side Mirrors
Side Skirts

Took some shots of the workshop in Kings Langley.

The work done was really gd and I am please with the result. And it looks great on Basalt!!

Worth doing while the car is still looking great!

Wow some time and effort gone into that!

I’ve just forward the link to a mate, he booked his not yet delivered 991 gts manual in with someone not sure who he picked though.

My cars going for paint today and will be going for ppf as soon as possible. I had a front end spray 3 years ago and now it needs doing again. So yes re-paint is cheaper but the film future proofs.

You are not wrong! But it deserves a pampering. Certainly won’t stop me launching it down a runway, tracking it or driving it as Porsche intended!

Yeah PPF is expensive, But if the paint is good enough and you don't wanna be repainting all the time its probably worth it.

That said, Whats the age limit on PPF? It'll fade with age i'd imagine, or yellow. Just like aircraft erosion boots do - as its principally the same stuff.

apparently the yellowing is a thing of the past with a good quality PPF

apparently the yellowing is a thing of the past with a good quality PPF - the thing that concerns me is if you damage the PPF it cant be touched up and will need replacing - i had it on my 996 and this happened on the bonnet got a small hole in the ppf and looked crap so i had to take it all off

If the car is a long term keeper I think PPF is worth it....less sure about it if you're getting it done on a car that you may only keep for one or two years.

If you're trading a car in to an OPC they'll assume it needs a front end re-spray and will have to remove the PPF so you'll likely get no extra value for it from them on trade-in. My OPC budgets £1500 on every car they take in for a front end respray...interestingly they've just started doing front end PPF on all their demo cars. I am guessing they've got a very good deal from whoever is doing it!
