    Protex clear film???

    Protex clear film???
    Has anyone used Protex clear film on their Huracans? The dealer is offering to install it for me for $2K. Is this a rip off? Please let me know what you think or if you have any other recommendations. Thanks

    How much of your car is the dealer covering for $2K? If they are doing the entire car, that would be the deal of the century (obviously, this is not the case). It's impossible to answer your question without knowing what degree of coverage this price includes.

    I have never heard of Protex. My car is at my PPF guy at this very moment, having PPF applied to its entirety. I wouldn't use anything other than XPel Ultimate - it is amazing - the reflectivity is excellent, very little orange peel, and best of all, it is self-healing, for smaller scratches.

    I wouldn't have the dealer do any PPF - in the vast majority of cases, they outsource it anyway, and upcharge you accordingly. If they do it in-house, inevitably, it will be a sub-par installation. My advice would be to find an excellent independent installer who uses XPel Ultimate, and get them to do it.

    Thank you TTbear for the detailed response! Your logic makes sense, I'm going to look for a dedicated installer outside of the dealership. To answer your question, they said they would be coating the front fenders, the hood, side rocker panels, and mirrors.
