Thanks for all the replies! I was looking for both ppf and the typical wankermobile matte wrap.

At the moment I'm just doing the routine of "have the car repainted when my OCD says so", but I thought there has got to be a better way.

I had the Bodyfence Hexis on the Ferrari I advertised here as well and I was really satisfied with the foil itself (the wrapping job was so-so). At risk of sounding like a talking head out of a telemarketing program, you could literally take a wire brush to it, and a couple of hours in sunlight would heal the foil back to being perfectly smooth and without a scratch. Admittedly I only had the car for 2 years I think, but I didn't spot any degradation in the film during that time. I think the technology is there, it's just finding a shop that is serious enough to not do a sh*t job.
Xynth, what did you finally ended up doing? I am looking to get a ppf for my 911 and was wondering if there is somewhere other than the frightfully expensive place that my Porsche dealer is suggesting?

Re: Quality Car Wrapping (ITT petrolheads get triggered)

To help:
. I started looking for a good detailer but prices were silly notably at Swissvax in Fällanden
. then I found www.car-spa.ch
Michael is the most reliable, passionate, reliable and best work you can find at a very decent price
. Over the last 4 years I have been a regular customer and the work is consistent with the best products ie Gyeon and Swissvax : )
. Now he also offers car wrapping and is currently doing it on a Rolls Royce
. I also know several friends with large car collections who are regular customers
. Work is done in Thalwil
Ps: I have no relation or commercial incentive to highlight the above

Re: Quality Car Wrapping (ITT petrolheads get triggered)

I got the front of my car wrapped with XPEL Ultimate Plus at wrapex. They did a great job at a price comparable to the US. I also liked that they called me about 3 weeks after the wrap to ask if anything peeled or bubbled. I believe I have a 10 year warranty on the PPF so can take it back to get reapplied in case it ever peels.

So custom install with no edges visible and no paint cuts?
