7 posts in this topic

Anyone had any experience with any of the paint chip films available on the market? Just thinking it miht be a worthwhile investment for the front bumper at least?

I've never really thought of using it that way before, I might look into this?

had clear film on previous cars - bonnet, sides etc.

 

pretty much a placebo for your peace of mind.

 

you are guaranteed to get chips where there isn't any film 

 

unless you cover the whole car

 

:D

How good is the film where it is in place?

i had some 3m stuff on my old gc8 along the front edge of bonnet, bottom of doors.

 

it actually worked ok where applied* but it was thicker than more modern films so looked a bit messy close up, the edges would catch wax and it was not particularly scratch resistant.

 

* short of covering the whole car, i'd do the entire bonnet, door mirrors, side skirts, in front of and behind wheel arches etc.

I've heard about the Xpel film which is a lot better than 3m though pricey.
