Xpel Maybe but Where Do I need it?

Just bought a 2018 ZL1 and I want to get Xpel put on it. What has been everyone's experience so far? Where do I need it applied? Front fascia, headlights, mirrors I'm thinking for sure. Where else?

Whole front clip, mirrors, rockers and mid way up rear quaterpanels. I also had them do a patch on the top of the rear bumper to protect from pulling/putting stuff in the trunk and the door wells.

Thank you for that. Can I ask how much they charged you for it?

Just had Xpel done on mine.
Here' what they did:

Full Front Clip Including Chin and Lights
Full Hood including Carbon Insert
Mirrors
Full Fenders
Full Side Skirt/Rockers
Door Cups (Not the doors themselves)
Door edges
Bumper area right behind wheel.

I think that should cover the typical problem areas.
It took 2 guys 8 hours to complete. $2200.
I don't know if that was a good price. Hope this helps

I just dropped mine off at Performance Auto Spa in Dublin (Plain City) OH....I knew I was in a good place when I saw Graham Rahal's GT3 going in for work. My son took the pics (fanboy!lol).
Windows tinted (Pinnacle 35%), Full Front PPF Xpel kit, side rockers, 6"roof section, rear quarter, rear bumper top, and a Performance signature ceramic coating (3 day spa event) interior also.
GOT A HUGE DISCOUNT!😁😁😁

We thought it was a Titanium exhaust, but when they started it up to drive it in, it sounded like straight pipes.

I would also suggest a stage 1 paint correction to remove any paint damage from the factory or dealer prior to application of the film.
