    Wow, 1500? I just got quoted 380 for part hood and 480 for full hood. Am I to assume that this includes the bumper?

    The clear bra on the first 12" of my 07 sedan with 125K miles shrunk a bit and was an eyesore. I spent a solid 10 hours with a 3M wheel, steamer I bought from harbor freight, heat gun, power washer, goo gone, WD-40, plastic scraper, and then cleaner polish to get the damn thing off.

    I now understand why shops charge a few hundred bucks to remove the stuff.

    The car has not seen car washes, and the only micro swirls in the paint on the car are that section of the hood. I may have the guys i am friendly with at a body shop I occasionally use give the hood a proper polishing.

    Probably doesn't include the bumper. The quotes I have gotten so far separate the bumper cost from any hood - mirror - fender costs.

    $1500 was for full hood, full front bumper, mirrors, front fenders, and the headlights. Basically the entire front 1/3 of the car

    I went straight from dealer to a detailer I found locally for ceramic, ppf, and tinting. All together was $1860. That was way cheaper than another detailer I got quotes from and both are very reputable. $1071 for xpel clear bra Ppf included bumper, headlights, mirrors, partial fenders and partial hood. $441 for Ceramic pro was 2 layer with 2 year approx lifetime. $350 for tinting all windows with xpel prime cs black tint. I've never tried ceramic or ppf so very excited to try them out and protect my Mini from the start.
