I wish I could put paint protection film on this windshield which seems to be made of sugar glass. I've already got 2 or 3 small chips in 2000 miles. Every little fragment of a rock dings this glass and this is with the $400 "Crystal Fusion" protection the dealer added on. I have full coverage insurance wise on the glass but I will wait until it's really bad before I have it replaced as that is a big job with all the electronics involved and getting it correct and a factory seal will be a crap shoot.

My installer mentioned possibly having to do a bulk install too, but at least he isn't changing the price for it if so. I'm already getting a decent discount cause they are tinting and ceramic coating the car at the same time. My appointment is not for another 2 weeks so maybe there will be more out by then.

Yeah hope so looks like xpel only has access to 2.5 which has full kit available online so who knows when they’ll get a 3.5 to put full kit online with different front end

What does a "Full-Kit" consist of?
Typically bumpers pillars hood fenders mirrors rockers headlamp roof line and they now a days have an interior kit too for screens and high gloss areas to minimize finger prints which is nice

I’m guessing they have solved the yellowing that was associated with film back in the early days. I’ve always been hesitant to slap anything other than wax on my vehicles. But for some reason the paint on these vehicles seems to be softer or maybe it’s more fragile/brittle and susceptible to chipping??

I may have to start researching this. I thought 3M was the major player in film product’s, is XPEL made by them?

The warranty specifically covers any discoloration.

I don't think that means that it can't happen, but if it does it's supposedly covered.

Has anyone tried this to protect their car against rock chips and scratches? Wondering if it is worth the investment. Have an Adriatic Blue exterior so those things will show.
Complete waste of money. Watch the long-term durability tests on YouTube. Scott HD does good ones.
