    I didn't have the hood done but did get the bumper, fenders, both mirrors, rocker panels, headlights and fog lights fully protected, plus they put a strip along the lip of the rear bumper where you would load stuff into the trunk.

    I'm glad I had the headlights done..was going down the highway and heard something hit the car body at a high speed, didn't know where it hit at the time but noticed a long line in the Armour on the left headlight, after a day in the FL sun the line just disappeared/self healed. The protection from love bugs alone makes it well worth the money and enhances the resale value of your car.

    Had mine done locally for $425, 3M Armour kit with 5 year warranty.

    Have a clear bra installed on my 2015 Genesis 3.8 AWD Ultimate package.
    I have it installed on all my toys.
    Works great and will never wear away the paint like a bra..
    I did:
    full front bumper
    full hood
    full fenders
    windshield pillars
    roof above the windshield
    door handle cups
    door edges
    Side view mirrors
    Basically anywhere there could be the possibility of a rock chipping the paint.
    Installed $1000

    I had a full front Ventureshield wrap (front end, hood, fenders, mirror backs) done on my 2010 when it was new. It worked really well, but after 7 years was getting very spiderwebby so I removed it (not the easiest job in the world). Upon removal I could see that the film had yellowed a bit (not noticeable on my black car, but might have been if the car had been a lighter color). I'm pleased to report that the paint under the film was completely flawless - it looks brand new. I'm glad I got the film, but don't plan to reapply it. I don't drive much any more, and the car is in the garage most of the time and still looks new.

    holy necrobump of a necrobump! let me assists! glad to hear it looks good, that says the install was proper. I need to get my front end done... bumper, fenders, full hood, mirrors, lower doors front, redo of the dealer installed partial rocker (pathetic job Humble Hyundai!), and handle cups. Not as critical in TX, but I am moving to CO, so yeah, GOT to have it done prior to that point. I am fortunate enough to have ZERO dings so far, but I am one of those guys that drops everyone off at the door then parks half a mile away taking up 2 spots. Additionally I treat my paint like the Arc, so it's well protected, but the only real barrier is a good clear bra.

    I had standard 3M on 3 Lexus vehicles and Expel on the fourth. Liked it and it keeps the value up on luxury cars. Any chips, dings, and they will hit you hard on trade in value. On my new G 80 I used a product called Sun Tek. Talked to two different installers and they stated it was the best on the market. Easier to install as it stretches better and had the entire front end done and tucked, and the backs of the mirrors. Did a good job. Whether the seam shows is dependent on the color of your car. My G 80 is Patagonia Blue and if you did know it was on there I doubt you would see it. On black and some other dark colors it is more noticeable. I stay away from dealer install and use a highly recommended installer, who deals mainly in high end vehicles. Was doing a Mercedes AMG and a Nissan GT when I brought my car in for install.
