Full wrap around the front bumper x 3 peice which means everything on the front, LH & RH front guards, bonnet, headlights, mirrors, door cups, door edges, A pillars, across brow of roof above windscreen.
Could be sale's talk to make me feel bad. Applicator costed it based on 4.5 metres of film and it turned out to be 6.5metres but did not increase the price. Whoever you may choose could well be open to negotiating with to try and obtain lower prices. It involved a full wash down and dry (even though a brand new car). Even whilst I was standing there showing him the car and before I left, on two occasions he found remnants of pre-delivery material on the car which I could not see but he knew what to look for and where. It did involve quite a few hours of work.
COST: $950. However, I did approach Car Bra in Melbourne for a vinyl bra for the MY14 and they wanted between $500 - $600. The money I was going to put into the bra has now gone into the 3M which gives me 24/7 protection for the invisible protection (practically), and I do not have to put it on and take it off everytime or worry about any rubbing or abrasing.
Having said that, if I was going to do some serious gravel road driving I think I would still look at buying the Car bra as the 3M is not going to protect the front from rocks being thrown up.
I want to add that you can buy the film and do it yourself....don't. I trust you and members have read the blog/forum article I posted. That is fraught with danger. My guy has done a really good job with no air bubbles or anything. He spent a lot of time on it. No point someone rushing it to cut the price by $100 bucks and leaving faults in the film.
I hope that is helpful "Iboughtajeep".
