XPEL Paint Protection or not?

I was curious about those out there who have done either the XPEL or the 3M paint protection. Did you do the front only? Front and splash zones? I have a local guy who is quoting me $850 for the front protection and about $250 for each of the four 'splash zones'. Being that the SRT isn't a Trailhawk, I was curious if I really needed the splash zone protection. I don't however want to not get it and then wish I had. Any options of those out there would be greatly appreciated. Thank you kindly and HAPPY NEW YEARS!

I did full front fenders rocker panels and impact areas. I would say the impact areas are worth it due to the srt throwing up rocks and what not with the big tires.

I got 3 quotes, 1700, 1900, and 2300 So I would say around 2k is about right.

In principle yes; however I am currently addressing some issues with what I think is the install.

I am very OCD when it comes to my cars and detailing. I have noticed a handful of areas that I'm not happy with. The installer said it was "normal stretching" of the material however I am going to have another installer look at it. If they also say it is normal I will live with it but it will drive me nuts. Once I have an outcome to this i'll give more feedback.

Re: XPEL Paint Protection or not?

Did you do the xpel or the 3M? My neighbor has the xpel on his 911 and its self "healing" property is amazing!
