    Shadow Tint quoted me almost $6K for the wrap That is the last call I will make to that shop haha. My neighbor also had a bad experience with them which didn't help.
    I think the Urus is in that range due to the many angles.

    Oh ok. If you did a full paint prep, 2 coats with 24hr curing in-between should last closer to a year. If you didn't do full paint prep, 6 months if probably a good result. Applying it again is way less work than prep anyway.

    Prep? My cars are fully wrapped.

    Iron X then Clay bar is all the prep I did. Then spray, wipe off. 24 hours later spray and wipe off. Did the wheels too.

    I could probably go a year, but will do both cars again in the next couple of week to refresh before winter.

    Ok that makes sense then, it apparently doesn't bond as well to film. Sounds like you got a pretty good result still. I just did mine so time will tell.

    Brought the truck home from Nano Defense today. I had phone quotes from three shops, they were one of the cheapest, and I liked the way the dude answered my questions. I'm not a PPF expert, as this is my second purchase of this type of product and the last one was 8 years ago, but, I am so far satisfied with the look of the install.
    Got full front, including fogs headlamps, grille, a pillars and above windshield, plus a stop below that body line on the side to protect the rockers.

    Looks good. Nano Defense has always treated me well.

    I am taking wife's mini there on Monday. He gave me 15% off beyond discount. All my other vehicles were handled by Shadow Tint in the past.
