I wouldn't trust anyone else. They done about 4 PPF installs for me and my family, and about 7 window tint jobs for me alone.

John is a class act and does meticulous work. Sure there are other more "high end shops" but they charge substantially more.

Hit up Marco at advance automotive films...he applied PPF on my 335i, full hood and bumper plus headlights. 5 years later with 120k added km's car still looks great.

Last time i asked it was around 1200$ . I believe that included fenders. It aint cheap. Almost the same as repainting the same panels

Another thing is if the car is white the film will yelowish over time , also the paint will age differently , this is more of a concern if you decide to go 1/4 of the hood as they shades will slighty look different once the film is removed so it is better to do a full panel

Just a few things to take into consideration.

Also +1 on marco . He does do a greatjob and he is always working on high end cars.


He is located in mississauga and he works with kevin at gta in details
I would even ask kevin if he can apply c quartz before the film is installed to make the car shinier

Some say that yellowing shouldnt be a problem with some brands.
Also i believe the warranty covers yellowing

I've seen many brands and they all yellow over time , some less than others specially on lighter colour cars. . Also if you ever remove the wrap ,the colour underneath will be different than the one in the rest of the car because they aged a bit different, specially under certain lighting and on lighter cars. They sure offer more protection but it does not mean it won't chip , and if it does chip its a bit harder to cover it. Also it is harder to removed bugs on the bumper

I m really on the fence when it comes down to wrapping , for the amount of money you are paying which is almost the same as repainting the same panels overtime, its almost not really worth it , specially on older cars

It makes more sense on a new car , or exotic cars

One last thing is , I would not recommend putting a wrap if the panel was previously repainted , as I have seen the paint peeling off once the wrap is removed , specially if the paint was not baked

I've seen Marco doing full car wraps , that is more of a proper job , everything ages the same , everything is protected.

I think at least the front bumper and partial or full hood.
What would that cost?

1000 $ full hood and bumper ( 500 $ each)

partial hood is 345$


You may have to add some more money if you want someone to detail your hood and bumper before the film goes on top , not a requirement but for 100$ or so a good idea

Also , someone like marco at gta in detail will probably add something like c quarts or opti coat on top for more protection

Those were the prices 2-3 years ago, Im sure it ll change from shop to shop , so it is a rough estimate

I called one place a month ago and they said 1600 for full front and then today 1800.
I guess there's a sliding scale based on the type of car
And 1300 bumper and hood.
