    Does it not bother you that they were first willing to completely screw you and have you overpay by a factor of 3-4 for the work, and only after you threaten to leave does the price magically come back down to earth? For me personally I can't bring myself deal with someone who tries that, and I would still go elsewhere and reward a company with honest pricing. On top of that, the installers the dealerships have are usually pretty terrible (especially if they're doing it for 1/4 of the original price) unless they are farming it out, at which point you might as well just cut out the middle man. I'd also be double checking they gave me the exact film they said they would be (I.e. Xpel Ultimate), since they will probably try to cut costs if they are agreeing to a lower/fair price.
    This. Go find good independents.

    I'll also echo the above comment to not get half the hood done - do all of it or none of it. Especially on lighter colored cars, the line accumulates dust and becomes very obvious very quickly. I had half hood 3M on an older white car and I will never do that again. The slightest discoloration in the film stands out like a sore thumb, as does the dust line. Discoloration I don't think is a big issue anymore if you go with the premium films that have 10 year color warranties (another reason to make sure the dealer isn't giving you cheap film if you go that route).
    My wife is concerned that if we leave it a week that there wouldnt be any point. The used car has quite a few marks on the hood in the first 2 feet because of rock chips which we are getting fixed up as part of the sale. Our highlander only ever had the clear bra 2 foot thing and it didnt really concern me infact I could probably see it on there more easily against black than white.

    so true. We know who wears the pants.

    The dealer won't wrap the edges, will use the thinnest film. not worth even the price match.

    For full front coverage, if you are paying less than $1,400 some sort of corner is being cut (film, labour (wrapped edges)).

    That would be full front bumper, hood, fenders. A-pillars and 18" of the roof in front of the sunroof. Also mirrors and headlights. If you aren't going to do that much, why bother doing any of it?

    There are so many good shops out there that do great work without dealership prices/quality.

    Jed's opening up his own shop again soon as well, pretty excited especially if you are in the South area.

    Even 2,000 sounds like way too much to me. That’s more than 30% more than what I paid on my Sierra for the same coverage ( and probably a bigger wrap).
    That was full hood, front bumper, fenders, headlights, foglights, A-pillars, roof, door cups, rear fenders, rear bumper + tint on the tail lights/bumper lights/mirrors.. $2k sounds like a deal to me.

    Rear fenders and both bumpers makes it pretty good. Not a usual part of a full front wrap.

    Though at that point I’m surprised you didn’t wrap the whole car.

    I was tempted to, thinking I'd keep the vehicle forever, but that was a lie.

    No point making double income if you're getting charged double the cost for things, or getting half the quality for the same price as a good shop.

    I don't think you will get many more rock chips, if any, in the summer in a week's time. Could always buy some touch up paint too and fix anything you need to before giving it to another shop for a proper job. Or just schedule it so the day you pick up your car is also the day you have your PPF appointment, if possible.
