Any advice on where to get 3M clear bra?

Hi Folks,

Just wondering how many of you out there have the 3M Protection Film on your cars? Is it worth getting this for a used car? I am looking to purchase a 2011 328ix. I think with the weather we have in Southern Ontario, it may be smart.

For those who have had it done, where did you go? I live in Hamilton but am willing to venture to the GTA or Kitchener/Waterloo region. And any prices you guys paid would be helpful! This is something I am looking into pending the used 328 I buy is in decent shape to begin with.

Thank you!

I'm looking into the same thing. Can people post prices and experiences with theirs?

The other concern is whether it will yellow with UV exposure?

I'm very interested in this too. I just bought a used e92 M3 in November and was planning on getting the front end painted, bumper, hood and fenders this Spring. There's the normal amount of highway chips for a 5-6yr old car, but I'm pretty anal about this. I was looking at getting the entire front end done so there's no seam or visible line where the PPF ends. I was quoted $1300 by ReStyleIt from the car show (it was a special...) so its definitely not cheap, comparable to a front end re-paint, but just saves you the hassle and time. This is for the best film they had, the new 3M ScotchGuard Pro (7yr warranty) - I wonder how does this compare to the XPel Ultimate (10yr warranty) in real life.

The results of the first and second videos seemed quite opposite...

I've heard good things about Sekan Skin in Mississauga.
