It also depends on the brand of car...
I know for the Panamera, the moment I said "Porsche" I would immediately get a quote for $1000 for the front bumper, and 1/4 hood + fenders; and the Panamera is not that complex an install.
The same job on my 335i was half that. I did end up finding someone who used the latest stuff from avery, and did it at a reasonable cost; ie. 1/2 that with a superior product and great installl, and cash
As far as whole hood goes, I like paint, I like seeing paint, so I prefer minimal clear-bra (1/4 hood, fenders, and bumper, bumper is a must); otherwise, a chip here and there on a 3 series never hurt anyone.
Even a Porsche, its there to be used -- run the thing into the ground over 10-15 years!
Nice car btw, looks cool.
